UK NEWS: MAN CLEARED OF RACIAL ABUSE AFTER CLAIMING HE USES THE WORD ‘NIGGER’ AS A “TERM OF ENDEARMENT”

Rap fan Christopher Jones

Old Christopher Jones here probably plays ‘Niggas In Paris’ morning, noon and night.

Well when you have idiotic black rappers successfully pushing this vile word in to the mainstream and Jay-Z sitting opposite Oprah (a woman born and raised in the deep South during a time of segregation, lynchings and Civil Rights marches) telling her and millions of viewers that “it’s now a “term of endearment. We have reclaimed the word” ( Erm..how can we reclaim a word that we never gave to ourselves Einstein?) then this foolishness below was bound to happen at some point.

Via The Guardian

A court has cleared a man who shouted the word “nigger” at a black man of racial abuse, after he claimed he was a rap music fan who used the term as an endearment.

Christopher Jones was found by North Staffordshire magistrates to have used the term widely seen as one of racist abuse, but not to have used it in a hostile way.

He told magistrates he used the term regularly on the streets around his home in Blurton, Stoke-on-Trent.

Jones was charged by police and in court pleaded not guilty to using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour which was racially aggravated.

After his acquittal, Jones said he had more black friends than white ones and added: “I can be sat with a black friend and I will say ‘What up, nigger?’ and it’s a term of endearment.” Continue Reading…

We only have ourselves to blame for this mess.

  1. *dead* at the text under the picture “Rap fan Christopher Jones”.

    As usual Black Folks are responsible for the way other people treat us and talk to us.

  2. @Nubianhbella right! It is not a term of endearment for me. Why do we as Black people find it so hard to understand where this word came from. When you talk about term of endearment and that word….this is what happens. Now everyone can use this as a defense…..SMDH….. But as it was mentioned we did it to ourselves…

  3. He is racist though. No white person should ever feel the need to reinforce that word. Term of endearment by back foot.

  4. I’m noticing a pattern within the comments on this blog of late.

    Every thing is a ‘black’ thing. Every reported ignorant happening is ‘why do WE do this’

    There is no ‘WE’ in this. ‘WE’ are individuals. ‘WE’ have all been brought up in different households with different values and different cultural influences.

    I didn’t do this. I listen to hip hop music but don’t take any elements of their make believe stories into my real life. I don’t use the word and don’t allow anyone of any race to use the word around me, does this mean I can no longer consider myself black?

    I’ve learnt, especially in the UK, that black people is not a collective term. There are british black people who feel the need to be inclusive and as ambiguous as possible in terms of nationality and there are the rest of us who respect our ancestral roots first and foremost.

    Its not a ‘black’ thing to allow people to take advantage of us, make our own people our enemy and shed ourselves of any identity so much that they can dictate what we can and cannot find racist. It’s a white thing, that is what THEY do to everyone, In fact we fought for the exact opposite didn’t ‘WE’? It is an ignorance, a lack of self and stupidity that has infected many living in the diaspora, but that disease is not solely a black disease.

    As I still consider myself a a fully paid up member of the black race, please stop calling all incidences of foolishness by people who share my melanin a ‘black’ thing. Can we start saying ‘them’ instead of ‘we’ please?

    Thank you
