Om Redefining the "N" Word
Nigga" the most controversial word to come out of the English language. Some hate it, some love it, and some just don't care. Yet, it has become one of the most widely used words to define the modern black in America today. What do I mean? What was your reaction to the title of this book? Did you see someone harshly spit that word out in a southern drawl? Did you see someone use it while giving dap, then affectionately converse about the hood? Did you see someone scream it in rage as they repeatedly shoot someone? Was it rhymed in a lyric to a new song? Or, is it a word that has no meaning until you randomly decide to give it one? The word "Nigga" is grossly offensive to some but not to others. However, as a diverse people, we have one thing in common with the word nigga. How do we take the conflicting messages of what this peculiarly ambiguous word means and bring resolution to them?This book attempts to do that by placing you right in the middle of that cultural battle. William G.
