The "Nigger" Word & Ten Year Old Jonathan E. Mccoy: Though Words Can Never Hurt Me, I Support Petition

Jonathan E Mccoy & The "N" Word, thanks Johnathon. Although it is the position of this publication that we (African Americans) can’t live in fear of the NWORD and should regard it as nothing more than “a word,” I applaud Jonathan E. Mccoy’s exception presentation and, while I can’t speak for the entire community or network on this, support his petition against it.

It’s a contradiction to believe we shouldn’t be offended when ignorant or hateful people use it in reference to us and to support Jonathon’s position at the same time. But I am motivated by two factors: 1) the adage “sticks and stones can break my bones but words can never hurt me; and 2) the powerful, powerful presentation Jonathon, only ten and a half years old at the time he gave the speech, originally gave at the Empowerment Church in Baltimore before over 1500 an audience of over 1,500. If you haven’t seen this, it’s worth the watch. Additionally, a short excerpt is transcribed below.

“Unfortunately this misinterpretation of our heritage has been perpetuated among our own race. Rather than obliterate this disrespectful term we have adapted it as a cultural phrase. You’ve heard it, “What’s up my n-word?” Or maybe you’ve said it, “Get out my face n-word.”So why have we taken this word to use it in our everyday language to communicate to or about ourselves? Let me dispel the myth, as a people we are neither economically, politically, nor socially disenfranchised…..So I’m petitioning you to join me in deleting this word from our vocabulary as a people, as a nation and as a world.”

In short, it is a contradiction I’ll ask endurance for. For as I’m neither afraid or offended by the word, I simultaneously, after hearing Jonathon’s presentation, must also stand by him.

    Often, I think it is unfortunate that we can be offended by it (nigger) as a word. Additionally, I find it more tragic that so many whites (or wanna be whites, in the case of commenters like “Shattered Dreams,” actually believe that they can offend this community with it.

    Growing up, and even today – though not nearly as much, I was and am an (occasional) NWORD offender. Yet, even on my own, I have become more conscious of its use and that it still does offend some brothers and sisters.

      It’s ok. You can call yourself and your fellow monkeys ‘niggers’ because that is what you are and it would be a shame to misrepresent you, or make the mistake of giving you the status of a homo sapien, you homo erectus NIGGER.
      P.S.

    We can’t call you Human, productive, clean, intelligent, hard-working, sober, law-abiding, attractive, coherent, loyal. Nigger really does fit well!

        Caveman? The nigger is trying to say that humans are MORE primitive than niggers. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
        Look at a picture of Africa now and compare itto a picture of Rome not now but even thousands of years ago before you call anyone names, filthy shit skin.

          ShatteredDreams,
          Of the two civilizations, the Pyramids tell the real story.

          Antioch Hades, publisher of AndGodMadeLight, has an excellent article telling the real story on you.

          • ShatteredDreams says:

            The ‘real’ story BAHAHAHAHAHAHA
            If niggers were so magnificent then why do they fail to this day?
            Here’s one that’ll blow your mind:
            How many letters were in the African alphabet?
            Answer that one nigger.
            None, niggers were too primitive to come up with a written language, therefore they never documented anything.
            Niggers ruined Egypt just as they ruin anything. Niggers did NOT build the pyramids, documents show this…
