"Whats up my Nigga"

Consigning the 'N' Word to Personal History

"As some African-American leaders call for a boycott of the racial epithet known as the 'N' word, Pendarvis Harshaw of Youth Radio starts a campaign of his own. (NPR)"

Discussion is open on the use of the “N” word. I never have and dislike hearing my brothers use it. I see a time of blacks moving into power in the United States. What purpose for advancing our people will be served by having the next generation of CEO’s referring to one another as “niggas”?

This is a habit of the African American community that should be shed, in my humble opinion.

MR BROOKS!

You state: "This is a habit of the African American community that should be shed, in my humble opinion."

But then in the title of your blog post you say "Whats up my Nigga"

What's up with that?!?
