The White Nigger: Charlie Sheen’s Racist Rant! June 19, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — ambie321 @ 2:59 pm

Soooooooo Charlie Sheen had some words for his ex-wife Denise Richards.

Check it out here

And in the words of AOL:

“On Wednesday, a three-year-old voicemail that Sheen left for Richards was made public, in which Sheen calls Richards, among other insults, a “f—— n—–,” despite the fact that she’s not black.”

Now ok…why exactly did AOL feel the need to point out that Denise Richards is not black…as if the only niggers in the world are black folks??? Granted the slur has been typically used exclusively to describe African Americans…I personally  know a whole lot of NIGGERS who are not black.

So, in my quest for enlightenment as to why the author of this article believes that only black people can be niggers, I visited dictionary.com…and look what I found:

Nig-ger: Slang. Extremely Disparaging and Offensive. a person of any race or origin regarded as contemptible, inferior, ignorant, etc.

Well, looks like Charlie Sheen was more educated than the idiotic author that wrote this article. So now Charlie Sheen is doing damage control, apologizing to his black friends and the black community. Personally, I really dont give a shit that he called her a nigger. I’m actually HAPPY to hear the term transcend beyond us ‘common black folks.’

I feel like a part of the reason the n-word has been pigenholed into a slur against blacks is because we accept it. So, lets stop. Starting today…(and in honor of Juneteenth) walk up to every white person you know and say ‘what’s up my nigga!.’ Watch them squirm then bust out laughing. If only they knew that some of them are niggers just like us…ha!

    Circa 1962 or ’63, Lenny Bruce did some stand up material about semantics and offending people. He said, take n—–, for example. All you have to do is repeat it seventeen times and it no longer means anything.”

    Naturally, he did just that to an astounded nightclub audience.
    Then he crowed, “See? It’s meaningless now. It’s no longer offensive!”

    Mr. Bruce could be surprisingly naive about some things.
    I think the n word has become currency in a daily negotiation, a way to shock our parents, (especially when misspelled & ending in a instead of r) and a form of control. We can say it, you white folks can’t. Or alternately, if you black folks say it, you’re hypocrits with no self-respect.

    Nobody has a solution for poverty, homelessness, fatherless kids and fatherless kids with guns. Nobody can solve the problem of white owned companies fleeing urban areas for the suburbs, only to find that they can’t maintain their staffing levels because people in the inner city can’t get to the burbs by bus. Oh, but we can all argue bitterly and authoritively about the n word. It makes us feel so validated.

    Nominal aphasia can be a good thing. It’s interesting how much simpler social interaction becomes when the n word is simply deleted from one’s vocabulary. It’s more difficult to feel offended by a word you don’t use, no matter how many times you hear other people use it.

    lol! Good points, except that I don’t agree that we accept it. What do you mean by that? Just because there are black people that USE the word in a friendly manner to refer to their black friends isn’t a good enough reason to say that. Or do you mean that, as a race that was condemned by that word, we do not do enough to dispell its meaning?

    Only up for some friendly debate! :)

  4. [...] Like AOL had a problem with Charlie Sheen calling Denise Richards “The N Word” because she’s not black?…I just wish that word would just go away period…It’s just an ugly word that no [...]

    To answer your question…I dont mean that we accept it by using the term, I mean that until very recently, we did not do much to dispel the stereotype that nigger was synonymous with an African American person. In fact, we go as far as getting MAD when white people use the term to refer to each other in a friendly manner. Its almost like we’ve adopted the term as opposed to shunning it. We feel like its ‘our’ word when really it was a word that was developed to degrade and belittle us. I personally feel that the best way to take the power out of the word is to turn it around on others as well. If we stop taking ‘ownership’ of the word nigger, people like the AOL writer wont feel the need to say point out the fact that someone who was NOT black was called a nigger…why? because now nigger applies to everyone, not just black people. Make sense?

    I agree that it was stupid to say “despite the fact that she’s not black”, as if it would be appropriate if she was.

    However, I don’t buy it when the people (and yes, the dictionary) say that it is a word that refers to an ignorant person, regardless of race. Many people who feel that way have not experienced the brutality of the word.

    When someone shouted “nigger” to me from across the street, or told me that their mother said they should call people like me a “nigger”, they weren’t trying to say that i was ignorant, they were trying to insult me because I’m black.

  7. slync81 Says:

    Yes, it makes sense, and I agree. Black people HAVE adopted the word, and its a disrespect to our elders that we now see it as a way to clarify ourselves and our culture rather than what it is – a derogatory name.

    However, I don’t think the word will ever ‘apply to everyone’ in the way that you hope for. It’s too ingrained in our history for it to be recognised as something that can be used universally. If a white child asked its parents what nigger means, they’re not going to refer them to the dictionary, they will say what they THINK it means.

    But we can hope.

    (Good post!)

    There are increasingly many of us who simply feel that “nigger” describes a stupid loser. Race is irrelevant. There are white niggers and black ones; Chris Rock, himself, differentiates between “black folks” and “niggers.”

    I’m nervously tainted by the meaning (I’m “Black”), being its association is it’s nominating trait. That being towards African Americans, not by demeaning but almost a physiological metaphor (Not just Psychological) that ciphered the heritage of African Americans that migrated through out the United States to find a common ground. I mean ground…. Thus desensitizing it’s true effects are not the combination by its unique interpolation to be something that you should joke about.

    Though people forget what growing up means, the answer to what truly suppressed the racist word… Was most prolifically peer pressure, my personal opinion, thus one has only to read the population growth from the 1790 census till even now. Where you can find it asking if you are Negro… (Thats ME)

    From 800,000 (1790) to 34 Million (2000)

    Don’t ever say the Government didn’t see the growth, but than again did the people?

    Nigger

    I perceive it to exist only to deform all grounds for having courage, honor, and especially I note desensitized a “peoples” Commitment to equality rather scorning their endeavors. Heavy and weighted is this topic of discussion… My heart goes out to the people who miss use it, and don’t acknowledge the consequences… The first Caucasian person or Person with a European heritage to denote any black “Lexicographer” that was ever appreciated from slavery to the era of reconstruction as a positive influence, and not a negative tell me this…. If you can find that black person who ever invented a word during the most important part of African Americans and Strictly “Americans”, I want you pat your self on the back.

    I’m still looking for this man or woman, and yet though some African Americans have won grammys, and novel prizes. I must say, the peer pressure of growth opened those doors dramatically. To say yes, i’m Black, and i’m appreciated from struggle to beyond and i’m content to be a MAN. Nothing more and nothing less.

    Time can’t heal these things, I hear 200 years ago revolving on the topic of “race” in America, but we forgot the other 200 years before it. 200 years ago will only describe the conception of Black people having a voice, and being recognized from civil, gov, to war 100 years of which knowledge was blockaded and the people (Blacks) were deprived of freedom of expression.

    Niga

    Totally acceptable, it has no relation to Nigger (Nih-gher) vs Niga (Nih-Gah) if this were a online Spanish class you would grab your self some diversity right away so as to have the appropriated view, i guess people forgot about language and it’s invention.
