BITCH? NIGGA? NIGGER!

Real niggas don’t play temple run…they go to the zoo, slap a lion then run!

Ikr!!! The topic puzzles you huh? And the first sentence too?? I know it would puzzle me!, but I  would not wait to read what would be in store and so should you. Stick around to see what I think of my title and I mean they are names we are acquainted to, right?

So we were having this discussion with a certain lot and we could not conclude on a thing…we all had different opinions and no one would settle with anothers …so no common ground…and why not blog about it? maybe we might end up with a common ground.

Question is, is it offensive and or okay to call a guy nigga but wrong or okay to call a lady a bitch?

Is it a question of double standards in the society?

I know some of you might think its kind of paradoxical and that’s why there is the issue of double standards but no one is going to bash you here so be free to vent… I think both the names are offensive but not offensive at the same time but based on different situations.

I tend to think that the meaning behind the word of course is offensive but the situation at which you are using the name may make it less offensive…In an instance it might be used establish some familiarity. I don’t think there is anything profanity about it!

If I call bae and ask him if we are hooking up and he says hes hanging out with his niggers, does that mean that he has no respect for them? If a white guy is accidentally stepped on by a black guy on the corridor and he ask ‘hey yoh nigga whats up?’ is it still offensive???

Bitch please? what emotions does that statement spur?? Some will associate it to a go getter woman who doesn’t really give a hoot, ambitious and will not settle for less….and of course then I’d be a bitch too!

These words in the above instances carry particular subtext.

Could it be a case of endearment?

How about we use use them basing on two different cultures? The urban culture which blames the white man for almost everything and the Assimilated culture which copies what the white man does and at the same time enjoying in their privileges and glory…

But do you realize that no one makes rules about what offends people. No one can make such rules. Or rather, no one could enforce them. People will get offended by whatever offends them, whether or not it’s fair!
Culturally these terms are loaded in many senses.  It is not a word (bitch) that has fundamentally positive undertones or positive undertones, except in places where it has been re-appropriated, and even then, you need to know the audience or the person you are referring to.  The word generally has nothing to do with a woman and sex in the sense of “she’s got some awesome sexual prowess… look at the man she just bagged.” 

So what is it about these three terms?
