I can tell by the words people use how advanced their consciousness is. Bruh, Fam, Nigga, Cuz, Bitch, the list goes on. People like Snoop Dogg use Nigga in public like it’s drinking a glass of water. We then have people who have no idea how that word shapes our experience as a collective.
I was saddened to hear brothers from different countries in Africa and Jamaica playin soccer call each other Nigga. “Pass the ball nigga,” “Nigga you know that was out.” It was as surreal a when I heard the word Nigga in a Reggae song.
