last time I checked slaves were in islands like Puerto Rico..the whole Hispanola first before it hit the united states..it's rican with just as much african blood in them then blacks n the states..that's a stupid argument when ppl throw in who's black n who's not..when if u look down the tree both our ancestors came out them slave boats..including Ricans..and Joell is one of the ricans that realize that he is an african rican..it's no different then someone calling themselves african american..u confused?? get mad at ya white ancestors for f**king s**t up..don't get mad at us
anyway John Mayer is a white boy..what tha f**k do ppl expect..I keep telling ppl I trust a white person as far as I can throw Rosie O Donnell..and that b**ch fat as s**t...why tha hell where they talking about race anyway?
also I love how non blacks always say black ppl can say whatever they want but we can't say s**t..but white ppl can do whatever they want if that's the case..I rather be able to do s**t nstead of say some s**t..
i know about the whole slaves through the hispanola, i just posted about it on the previous page
... and im not getting mad by any stretch of the imagination, it goes right back to my initial argument which is why are you so personally offended (NORE, not yourself) that you feel the need to lash out at JM, but yet you use the word so liberally in your own music? its inconceivable to me...if im fat, hypothetically speaking and other people calling me fat is offensive, i dont call myself fatass or anything like that, its OFFENSIVE whether a skinny person says it or whether another fat person says it.... and obviously the n word isnt as simple as a term like fatass because theres history behind it, but it follows the same concept...its a debate thats not gonna get settled in this thread, and as much as im not trying to come off as racially insensitive, its hard not to... whos to say that John Mayer's ancestors were not opposed to slavery and werent slave owners, whether it be in the Americas or in the hispanola?? so to reach out to ancestry, a.ssumptions are made and possibilities are obviously going to be brought up...so even though, yeah okay, what i said about NORE and joell initially not being black means theyre opinions are invalid was partially wrong to say, but i still stand by it, why use an offensive word and then go apes**t when someone like JM uses it in a intentionally but for the most part, unoffensive context?
