Another Real Nigga PSA



We must give full credit where it's due. Tiggalo has been 100% cool with us jacking his
Myspace blog entries (Subscribe!)and we do so proudly because he's always got something insightful to pass along and he's one of the few artists puttin his thoughts out there in full.


I'mma show y'all the difference between niggas and niggers.....


As most of you have noticed, I've taken the liberty of adding the -er back to the end of one of Black people's most beloved words: nigga.

Now generally speaking, the rule goes that 'nigga' is a term of endearment while 'nigger' is a racial slur used to describe the ignorant, shuffling, happily uninformed monkeys that roam the streets everyday under the guise of Black people.

To be fair, I'll admit that all niggas have nigger tendencies. Every Black person has at one time or another exhibited nigger behavior either because A, it just felt good (talkin' loud as fuck during a movie), or B, the situation called for it (cussin out your child's racist math teacher at a PTA meeting).

There's nothing wrong with bringing out your inner nigger every once in a while, but when that shit permeates your life on a consistant basis, and you find yourself consciously doing and/or saying ignorant shit more than half the time? My nigga, you's a nigger. And its time for us as Black people to cut the bullshit and call niggers out when we see 'em. We're the only ones who can save ourselves, and that starts by policing ourselves and not condoning ignorance. That whole bandwagon, 'supportin a nigga just cause he black' shit has got to stop.

I know many apologist niggers would say that my line of thinking is just another way of separating Black people, and that I'm simply a pawn in the white man's game of divide and conquer.

Miss me with that bullshit. Seriously.

Call me whatever you want, but I don't consider every person of color to automatically be my 'brother' or 'sister' just because we got the same skin tone and nose shape. I deal with people PERIOD. And if you're not a person that's trying to better yourself and be a positive force in this world then I ain't fuckin with you. White, black, or whoever.....

I love my Black people to death. I swear I do. But niggers done let me down yo......even moreso than white folks have. I say that because white and Black race relations in this country have always been volatile at worst, and uneasy at best. I mean, we were brought to this country in CHAINS, for God's sake. So like most niggas, I EXPECT white folks to rob me, steal from me, plot my downfall, and just try to fuck me over in general, cause its the American way. Call me crazy for expecting better treatment from my OWN people.......

Its time for us to be Black folks and cut this nigger shit out. I'mma always love my niggas, but niggers? Fuck 'em yo. What's the difference you might ask?

Nigga- sells dope
Nigger- PROUDLY sells dope

Nigga- goes to jail
Nigger- goes BACK to jail

Nigga- distrusts the white man
Nigger- BLAMES the white man

Nigga- listens to coke rap
Nigger- DEFENDS coke rap

Nigga- loves self
Nigger- equates self-love to being 'bougie' and self-hate to being 'hood'

I could go on forever but I think y'all get the point.

What got me thinking about all this was watching "Block Party" last night and listening to that part where Wyclef was talking to the kids in the marching band. The one thing that stood out to me was when he told them niggas, "Fuck that, get yours." I respect 'Clef for that. Dude came to the country and barely spoke English. Fuck that, get yours. Didn't blame the white man, didn't make excuses, he just honed his talent and made something of himself. Fuck that, get yours.

Niggers could learn alot from that.

Let's all do better, y'all.
