This racist sorority girl wrote an entire ESSAY on why she should be allowed to say the n-word
Black people have ‘more rights’ than she does, apparently
A complete idiot who was called out for saying the n-word in two video rants has now published an essay arguing for her right to say the racial slur. Jasmine "I am not a racist" Barkley, who is a white student and sorority girl at William Paterson University in New Jersey, has been in the news for repeatedly shouting the n-word.
In one clip, Barkley said the word several times, adding: "If you're offended, suck my dick." In another, she asked if it was OK to say the word if it was in a song.

Barkley has now posted a response to her student paper, written in the style of those dumbass Open Letters, saying she should be able to say it. Using some rotten mental gymnastics, she actually believes if the n-word is in a song, she should be allowed to say it. "There is no moral justification stating that I am not allowing to sing lyrics sung by a different race," she writes.
But the sentence that really made my eyeballs explode and leave vitreous goo all over my keyboard was: "The black race has been fighting against segregation for long time, yet the divide of who can use the n-word only creates more segregation."
You read that correctly! She is saying that people telling her that as a white person she shouldn't say the n-word is as bad as segregation! That she is the one who is being oppressed for not being able to say the n-word! That her not being able to say a very bad racial slur is as bad as Jim Crow!

And she actually hopes this incident, you know, the one where she said the n-word a lot, will inspire "a better understanding of the true meaning of freedom of speech." Please God, take me now.
Jasmine has been booted out her sorority and is under investigation from her school. She has also deleted her Instagram.
Read Jasmine Barkley's Open Letter in full (any typos in this are hers not mine ok)
I am not a racist. I believe in equality and respect among all. The videos has been misconstrued in many ways across the media. I admit that the place and context of how I presented my question was insensitive. I am deeply sorry to those that have been offended from what was happening in the video. If a word is offensive to a particular race then it should not be presented in music. There have been multiple occasions on campus when I have heard similar music played that has repeatedly included the n-word and other vulgar terms in the lyrics. When an interracial group sings along to lyrics including the n-word, people don’t call out those who are not black, racist for singing along. I posed a controversial question because I was upset that my friend was harassed for singing along to the lyrics of “Freaky Friday” by Lil Dicky featuring Chris Brown. I never attacked a specific person or group. I was simply questioning why one race has more rights to freedom of speech than another. Lenard McKelvey (Charlemagne Tha God) was posted on a Youtube channel speaking on this topic. In the video, he states until blacks stop using the word n***a “we can’t get mad at nobody else for using the word n***a”. He goes on to speak about how if people want to see change, they need to be change they want to see. He believes that it is hypocritical for a person to use the word and not expect others not to use it as well. Another comment he makes is about how if Martin Luther King Junior or other historic black figures were to come back to life, they wouldn’t be shocked by white people using the n-word but by those of the black using the n-word. There is no moral justification stating that I am not allowing to sing lyrics sung by a different race. The black race has been fighting against segregation for a long time, yet the divide of who can use the n-word only creates more segregation. I have been an active member in the William Paterson community to have a voice on campus and because I am someone who puts effort towards making positive strides in equality. My hope is that people realize this was not a malicious act but just a response to feeling ridiculed and unequal pertaining to this issue.
I hope after sharing my thoughts this provides some clarification and insight into what type of person I am. I also hope that by opening up this issue for discussion, racial groups can become more sensitive of one other’s feelings and develop a better understanding of the true meaning of freedom of speech.
