Now people are upset about her "using" the N word. It is being put out there like she called someone the N word, when in reality she didn't do that. Those two dingbats wrote the song using the word in the title and she tweeted the title of the song they wrote. Why are people mad at her for it?? IMO, they shouldn't have named the damn song that in the first place...


What do you think?

How is it ignorant? When I was in high school all the guys would call each other that and teachers didn't even care. Unless they were like 80 and outdated.

Either I'm too ignorant to understand what your post meant or your post made no sense.

We basically need to stop using the word and stop with the "we can say but they can't" nonsense.
And that's the issue right there. Jay Z and Kanye do not represent the entire black race. The word has a horrible past and shouldn't be used, but at the end of the day the word is part of our history [black history]. Just because those within our community [I don't use the word and hate it] use it doesn't mean the entire world has that right.

Jews don't stand for disrespect, homosexuals have a right to speak out against the slang "gay", but us blacks are stupid because we're offended by her using this word??? That's balanced.

You don't see us blacks throwing around the words cracker, white trash, wetbacks and more all openly and freely. Yet these words are popular among their race. The song should be banned and Gwen needs her ass kicked for that. It's funny how blacks use many different types of terminology and words yet whites love to jump on the "n" word bandwagon. This song doesn't give you an exuse to use it.

You're taking it to a bit of an extreme.

Default @Calipoppy

I agree with Calipoppy. I'm a black woman and I don't see the big deal with the whole Gywneth P repeating a "song title" to my understanding she WASN'T calling someone the n-word...It's a song title...so blame the fools that named it that.
