The Song Title “N-word in Paris” is Insulting…


(ThyBlackMan.com) The n-word is not just a word, as so many causally and nonchalantly try to make it out to be.  The black community’s praising, worshiping and glorification of it makes it more than just a word, but rather their Master, their God whom they willingly bow down to.  The downward spiral of decadence continues in Black America as the acceptance of the song “N**ga in Paris” serves as a testimony to.

During the 1960’s Black America was vibrant, sagacious, intolerant, circumspect and self-respectful the positive attributes were endless; the  intestinal fortitude of 60’s Black America was unwavering, unfortunately contemporary Black America seems to lack the same conviction or determination to continue to strive for and demand ultimate respect and equality.

Today, we find it acceptable to be referred to as the n-word as if it is some sort of badge of honor to be worn; we sit by saying nothing while drugs, misogyny, saggin pants, crime and violence are marketed and promoted as a way of life, as if it is all synonymous with being Black; and the latest slap in the face?  N**ga in Paris!

For the past 30 years, an element of ruin has taken over Black America while the silent majority sits back, watches and allows the community’s annihilation to endure, uninterrupted.

The time has come for the silent majority to wake up, stand up, and help clean up a mess created by proponents of a self-destructive mind-set the mentality of the very definition of a “n**ga.”

It behooves self-respecting BLACKS to re-claim their rightful and dignified place in history, or else, the race will remain irrelevant, presented as inferior,
useless beings only taking up valuable space…in the pages of ancient history. The silent majority must take a look in the mirror and say: “Let it begin with me! And let me rest not until I have helped my community once again stand as a strong, viable, united, and honorable people.”

Black America must understand the game that has been played on the group
and ACCEPT that the n-word—n**ger or n**ga—is the lifeline that feeds the on-going systemic destruction. Some believe that there are more important or prevalent issues occurring in the black community than to be worried about the use of the n-word. But what if the CAUSE of all of those highly-significant and more pressing issues tied directly back to a “smaller, seemingly less important” factor?

You are being asked to join with the United Voices for a Common Cause, Inc. and allow the voices of the silent majority to be heard—loud and clear FOR ONCE—by signing the petition to denounce use of the n-word by anyone of color. Then, pass the message on to others asking them to do the same.
