    Katt Williams says Quentin Tarantino has no business using the N-word

    He overused it in some of his films, but he's a provocateur if anyone cares to watch his films. If we are thinking of Django, however much of a fictionalized portrayal of anything in the 19th century it is, is still set in the time period under which it makes sense to include its use.

    Equal does not mean the same.

    But it means equal. Black people marched for equality, and died for equality, so they, for the most part, have it. Soooooooo if they are equal to white people, then why can't white people use the N word when blacks can? Makes no sense.

    Katt Williams says Tarantino has no business using the N-word.

    Any opinions?

    Katt Williams On Quentin Tarantino: “I Checked With All Of N*ggadom, You Don’t Get A Pass”
    1. Katt Williams is cray cray. (This isn't really relevant to the story, but I thought it should be mentioned.)

    2. If you're making a film about slavery, it makes sense to use the word. Therefore, I don't really care if Tarantino used it.

    3. I understand why Williams and others might take issue with Tarantino's use of it, particularly in terms of how many times he uses it.

    I stopped using that word a very long time ago.


    I keep wondering when the majority of black folk are going to catch up and join me.

    The entire idea of permission to use words being racially based, simply continues racism or inequality. When will those that say they oppose racism stop using racism to justify their opposition to it?

    Within families, family members are often allowed* to say things that those outside the family are not. Within groups of friends, friends are allowed to say things that those outside the group are not. Within states, residents are allowed to say things that those outside the state are not. Within nations, citizens are allowed to say things that outside of the nation are not. Within racial groups, those within the group are allowed to say things that those outside of the group are not. That's just the way humanity works. We accept certain things from those within a group that we do not accept as easily from those outside of it usually because we aren't familiar with the character and intent of those outside our groups.

    The reason many black people don't like it when non-blacks (particularly whites) use the word is the same reason many Americans don't like it when non-Americans make fun of the United States or when friends don't like it when people outside of their group make fun of one of them and so on. It's pretty simple and easy to understand.

    *allowed in this context means "able to use without disapproval"

    Do you know what racism is? Hint: It isn't not wanting white people to not use a word.

    You can use it... but the social stigma is just too high.

    Anyway, the word nigger is of no consequence. Its a silly word and if blacks want it to be a black privilege, i don't care.

    Also, in the US, white people fought a war to end slavery that shattered the nation apart. And also, remember, that the British and the other colonial powers also fought countless wars after they abolished slavery, decades before the US, because in certain places where slavery had been legal, people didn't like it being outlawed.
    So the notion that the word nigger is a term blacks gained privilege of using because they fought for equal rights is silly.

    one would think a slaveowner would use the term... and for the fact that the movie is about a slaveowner, I would tend to think it's ok.

    I read an article about the movie recently, it said DiCaprio was uncomfortable using the word, but Jamie Foxx and Samuel L. Jackson told him to let loose and play the role.
    Foxx and Jackson have it right, imo... Katt need to relax
