Genre: Social Science

It’s “the nuclear bomb of racial epithets,” a word that whites have employed to wound and degrade African Americans for three centuries. Paradoxically, among many black people it has become a term of affection and even empowerment. The word, of course, is nigger, and in this candid, lucidly argued book the distinguished legal scholar Randall Kennedy traces its origins, maps its multifarious connotations, and explores the controversies that rage around it. Should blacks be able to use nigger in ways forbidden to others? Should the law treat it as a provocation that reduces the culpability of those who respond to it violently? Should it cost a person his job, or a book like Huckleberry Finn its place on library shelves? With a range of reference that extends from the Jim Crow south to Chris Rock routines and the O. J. Simpson trial, Kennedy takes on not just a word, but our laws, attitudes, and culture with bracing courage and intelligence.

Capitalist Nigger The Road To Success

Author: Chika Onyeani
Publisher: BookBaby

Release Date: 2012-12-04
Genre: Business & Economics

Capitalist Nigger is an explosive and jarring indictment of the black race. The book asserts that the Negroid race, as naturally endowed as any other, is culpably a non-productive race, a consumer race that depends on other communities for its culture, its language, its feeding and its clothing. Despite enormous natural resources, blacks are economic slaves because they lack the ‘devil-may-care’ attitude and the ‘killer instinct’ of the Caucasian, as well as the spider web mentality of the Asian. A Capitalist Nigger must embody ruthlessness in pursuit of excellence in his drive towards achieving the goal of becoming an economic warrior. In putting forward the idea of the Capitalist Nigger, Chika Onyeani charts a road to success whereby black economic warriors employ the ‘Spider Web Doctrine’ – discipline, self-reliance, ruthlessness – to escape from their victim mentality. Born in Nigeria, Chika Onyeani is a journalist, editor and former diplomat.

The purpose of the current study is to expand knowledge of the history of the term Nigger and its variation Nigga (Nigger/a) in Hip-Hop music. The word "Nigger/a" was a label for African slaves that was also used to signify inferiority. "Nigger/a" is often used in the African American community as a term of endearment. Moreover, the word is regularly used in Hip-Hop music. Eight Hip-Hop songs from the early 1990"s and 2011-2013 were used to identify trends in how the word was used in reference to the artist and others. Hip-Hop lyrics from the early 1990"s used "Nigger/a" largely to speak of discrimination and other social disparities while the modern artists used the term to gain solidarity from their audience. The modern Hip-Hop lyrics did not contain Nigger or any variation of the term as frequently as the lyrics from the 1990"s. Misogynist messages appeared in the more current lyrics and no misogynist lyrics were identified in the older lyrics. Results suggest that successful Hip-Hop/rap songs are not authentic unless the word nigga is used to gain solidarity and misogyny is used in reference to women.
