Is it okay to say the "N" word if you're singing along with a rap song?
Well yes... That word doesn't have copyright to only dark people, just show your respect and not use it when you're in public. Alone is perfectly ok
No. God is always watching. He would definitely not approve.
You can say "NO" whenever you want to Dear. I say it often when I listen to offensive and racist rap music that is forced upon me when pumping gas at the convenience store or laying in my bed at 11pm on a Friday night (drive-by stereo assault from passing boom-box speakers a block away). Funny how so many of us are so concerned with courtesy when the makers of this foul music and the manufacturers of the invasive speakers could care less.
If you are not Black it is best to leave that word along. The emotional, historical, and racial meanings attached to that word will never lend itself to rationality. Remove it from your vocabulary and leave it along.
That is completly up to you. By yourself or with family and friends I say no problem, however, better not say it in public though.
I am not as offened by the "N" word as I am from the other typical swear words, but others are. If you don't mean any harm, and you are just singing along with a song, then it's up to you.
Actually, the so-called N-word is one of my favorite words. It is ghetto chic and I am a product of the ghetto.
Furthermore, because blacks and others use the word so freely today, it has lost all of its strength as a derogatory term that hurts people's feelings, with the exceptions of those blacks who are ashamed of their "blackness" and those whites who have patronizing attitudes towards blacks.
no, I couldn't bring myself to use that word (or any other derogatory term)
It's in the song right? It's no different from singing all the words in a song you like. If you follow the lyrics the wherever the word is placed you have to listen for the intent. Is it said to degrade or just as a figure of speech. As an adult I say what words I want, when I want, when it fits a particular situation.
A word is a word. I use it freely and I don't much care if it offends anyone else. I don't censor my words to anyone else's ignorant tastes. We imbue words with more power than they truly hold. A word is not offensive, you must take offense. And if someone is choosing to take offense by what I do or don't say... that's just silly of them.
Ideas are powerful. Words are not.
I don't curse in public because it's impolite, but I hate when songs get censored to pieces. I sing the real lyrics and I don't care who seeeees. That's how it's supposed to beeee, livin' yoooouuung and wiiiiild and freeeeeee.
