*Hey, this is gonna be real short.
TMZ has a poll up asking black folk what they would prefer to be called: N*gga or African American?
Of course this poll is based on a statement made by Suge Knight (of all people!) the other day.
Suge Knight? Seriously?
There is probably a very few who was surprised that Suge said what he said. As a gangsta, of course his comfort level with being referred to as “n*gga” is going to be different than the comfort level of someone living a different type of life; no matter that they share a race. His statement that he is “offended” by the term African American does not deserve to be placed in a poll and asked of black people. He is not an adequate, prideful representative of the black race.
So the question is, why would someone outside of his lifestyle want to be referred to as anything co-signed by Suge Knight? He is quite frankly not the right someone to lift a statement on race from and prop it up in a poll for black people to respond to.
No intention to judge the brother, he is who he is, and he said what he feels; but his remarks don’t necessarily reflect the black majority (or minority for that matter). Just keeping it real real.
