Never. Why are we still using that word to begin with? I don’t care who you are, black, white, red or purple, can we just stop throwing the ‘ni**as’ word around already. Geez!
I’m not ranting, just addressing an issue that’s been a long time coming, upon glimpsing news about Gwyneth Paltrow calling her friends, Beyonce & Jay-Z, the same controversial word. I guess Mrs. Chris Martin felt that since she was now BFF with Bey & Jay that she was in the clear to use such terminology. Umm…not exactly mam.
Let’s get off topic a bit, when and how exactly did Gwyneth Paltrow become friends with Beyonce & Jay-Z? That one flew right over my head. I’ve always seen her as “unfriendly” and blahh to be around, but then again that’s just the vibe that caught my attention whenever I saw her, on camera that is. And to be honest, I don’t find her acting…believable. But that’s another post all on it’s own. Now, back to the topic at hand.
Is it a big deal that Gwyn used the ‘N’ word in reference to her African American friends? I’m afraid it is. Some have even called her tweet “wreckless” and maybe she’s “getting a little too comfortable”, which is absolutely what I think it is. Don’t you?
What are your thoughts on this issue? Big deal or not?
