“I don’t mean it like that!”

“I don’t have a racist bone in my body!”

“I never owned slaves, don’t get mad at me.”

“I have black friends, I can TOTALLY say it!”

THEN STOP F*CKING SAYING IT.

“BUT HOW COME BLACK PEOPLE GET TO SAY IT!?”

You cannot say nigga if you aren’t black.

You cannot say nigga if you aren’t black.

You cannot say nigga if you aren’t black.

You cannot say nigga if you aren’t black.

You cannot say nigga if you aren’t black.
