Thoughts On SAE Nigger Chant

WARNING: THIS ARTICLE CONTAINS OFFENSIVE LANGUAGE. NOTHING IS CENSORED. IF YOU CAN’T HANDLE THAT… I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO TELL YOU. YOU’RE JUST GONNA HAVE TO SKIP THIS ONE I GUESS. SORRY. I DON’T MEAN TO COME OFF AS A DICK EITHER I’M DEAD ASS SERIOUS THIS IS A REAL WARNING.

Everyone’s been talking about this pack of racist white people on a bus, so I figured I should go ahead and talk about it. This website is usually focused on Hip Hop, but I like to discuss shit like this too. If you somehow don’t know by now, this video…

…was released on March 8th by The Unheard Movement, a black student group at the University of Oklahoma focused on the lack of representation and support of African Americans on campus. The video just shows a bunch of white students on a bus chanting, “There will never be a nigger at SAE / You can hang them from a tree, but they will never sign with me / There will never be a nigger at SAE” Yeah, that’s racist. If you want them to be defended you might as well just stop reading right now. First off, I’m not surprised by this at all. I really don’t know the average age of the viewers of this website, but if you guys go to school with white kids you shouldn’t be surprised either. I hear the word nigger pretty much every day now. And yes, nigga is the same as nigger. Don’t give me all that “nigga is a term of endearment” bullshit. Nigga came from the same place nigger came from: slave masters’ mouths. Y’all may not know this, but slave masters had southern accents too. Don’t try and tell anyone that nigga isn’t just nigger with a southern accent. You’re lying to yourselves. Nobody should be throwing that word around. That word should never be used casually. I can’t think of a more fucked up word than nigger. What are the most common excuses for racism? “Black people kill each other all the time!” and “But you say nigga all the time!” If we don’t want them to say it then we should be strong enough to stop using it ourselves. We were strong enough to get equal rights (…almost), but we aren’t strong enough to stop using the most fucked up word in the English language? Fuck that. It’s not gonna be easy to stop saying it, even for me, but if we really care about this shit then we have to. It is really hot in my room right now… I just turned my fan on. Anyway, after this video of the dumb white kids saying nigger was released, everybody lost they shit and it was huge. The house mama for SAE (btw SAE stands for Sigma Alpha Epsilon… Just fyi) apologized, calling the event “unbelievable” and “not SAE.” …AND THEN this video came out.

Her defense to this one was pretty much just her saying, “I’m not racist… I… I was just rapping along to All Gold Everything.” Honestly, I was even less surprised about this video than I was about the students. I mean look at her… She’s fuckin’ old. Old people are racist. Seriously nobody should be surprised by this. She’s 78 fuckin’ years old. She was 31 when MLK was killed. If you spent the first 31 years of your life treating black people like they aren’t humans, you’re gonna have a pretty hard time changing. And that’s if you WANT to change. Of course everyone’s blaming this on Hip Hop. Again, I am not surprised. It makes sense to blame it on Hip Hop tho. What other excuse could you possibly come up with. Nobody’s just gonna say, “Oh shit. Ya got me… Ok, yeah, I’m racist.” Of course they’re gonna blame it on Hip Hop. It’s not like Hip Hop doesn’t have anything to do with white people’s use of the word nigger. As I said before, I hear that word every fuckin’ day. As a mixed kid, nobody can tell that I’m black at first, so they think I won’t care if they say nigger. I heard it the most in the locker rooms during P.E. in 9th grade, but I still hear it way too often. I shouldn’t hear it at all. I shouldn’t even have to write about this. Racism isn’t going anywhere tho. There will always be racism. There’s no such thing as a “post-racial society”. One of the most important things that we need to do is stop saying nigger. It’s unfortunately a very large part of our culture because of Hip Hop, but if you’re actually a good rapper, you shouldn’t need to rely on that word. Also, I know that nigger is a messed up word and everything, but why are people more upset about them saying that than making fun of lynchings? I’d much rather be called a nigger than be hanged. When they talked about hanging us by trees I was way more offended than I was when they called us niggers. I feel like them making fun of lynchings is much more racist than them saying that there won’t ever be a nigger at SAE. Also, to anyone who says that everyone should be able to say nigger… Fuck you… Just kidding, but the reason we can’t have anyone saying it is because we are basically spitting in the faces of our enslaved ancestors. Also, people still use the word nigger as a term for black people. So yeah there ya go. If I had to rate this chant I would give it a -∞/100

VERY WACCCKK

*sigh* …One of the comments for an article about this on cbsnews.com says “I want to see a march by the Ku Klux Klan and then one by the Nazis right down the paths through campus otherwise the university is restricting the right of free expression of dissenting views.” That might actually be the dumbest thing I’ve ever read…
