January 6th 2017 — Hashtag N*gg*er Trending on Twitter — I did an article called 7 Things Black People Can Learn from White People, where I asked black people to Eliminate the Word Nigga From Your Vocabulary. Now it seems like the hashtag is trending on twitter; howsoever, not with an “a” but the wretched “er.” If you search the hashtag, you’ll find tweets with white female supremacy, and mock-ups demonizing Barack and Michelle Obama and Oprah using the racist epithet. Eleven hours ago, a twitter user said, “I’ll use whatever fucking # I feel like, with or without your permission,” and claims “the word ‘better’ to belong to whites, you can’t use it.” When you visit his profile — you’ll find a “boob-ilicious” mural that does showcase a black girl.

Another user says, “Okay but if the word provokes you, you might be a #Nigger. What I’m saying is, stop taking negative words personally and grow up.” First, the word is clearly a misspelling of the word Negro. I thought “they” had all this intelligence and was “better.” No one owns any words, it’s factually impossible, and if some way it is possible, well, shouldn’t they learn how to spell? #Nigger is one of the most notorious words in American culture. No matter what its origins, by the early 1800s, it was firmly established as a derogative name. In the 21st century, it remains a principal term of White racism, regardless of who is using it.
