The use of the word “nigga” is very common and popular in rap culture. Over the years rappers have used this word within their music to sort of change the connotation of this word. Prior to the prevalence of rap music this word was mainly used in a derogatory fashion. The presence of the this word in ap music has made it easier for many people to feel comfortable using this word. If you ask me NOBODY should be allowed to use this word. I have learned from debated on this topic that the use of this word is going to be inevitable. With that being said I still find it very inappropriate, and uncomfortable when people who aren’t African American use this word. They have no connection to this word whatsoever. Anyone who isn’t African American should never feel comfortable enough to let that word slide out of their mouth.
