(persia from vh1's "white rapper show" )
In the first episode, Persia repeatedly uses the N-word, to the dismay of several castmates but the glee of producers in the control room. Soon Berrin informs the cast, "That word don't play here, regardless" — and bestows a giant silver chain with an enormous "N-word" medallion upon Persia, who must wear it for 24 hours.
Persia tearfully promises to change her ways, although she backtracked in her AP interview. "The pain in the back of my neck kind of caused me to have a nervous breakdown," she claimed. "Afterward, I came to realize I'm from New York — it's kind of different for us. It's how I speak with my friends; it's how I'm always going to speak with my friends."
i'm black and I use the n-word from time to time, but never in mixed company. i find it weird that she claims to be so "hood," because in my hood she'd get her a.ss tapped for being disrespectful. she's disrespecting all the people that died from the racism tied to that word.
peep her myspace and look at all the support she's getting.
Well. I use "n*gga" frequently. I like the word. I use it as a noun, to describe a person. The person can be white, black, Hispanic, or Asian. I still use n*gga. The only white person I let use "n*gga" around me is my n*gga Tony. He's from Croatia and on the college basketball team. His accent is funny as sh*t and he's a cool a.ss dude. The basketball team (predominantly black) have no objection to him saying it.
Other people though, only get one warning from me. After that it's get out my face or get stole on.
