If a song has the N word in it, are white people not allowed to sing it?

I have this song stuck in my head and the title of the song is literally "Niggas"
I feel like i shouldn't be singing the song though because im white lol

  • If you're uncomfortable singing it because of the origin of the word then don't. And if you're in public just be mindful and respectful of the people around you. Most black people won't say anything if you sing or rap lyrics with the word nigga in it but believe me they will look at you sideways. context is key and a nigga is a very real thing in existence (an ignorant individual) and black Americans have been so conditioned under slavery and post slavery to believe that they wasn't shut that it is normal to use the word in everyday conversation. I am black and the word is still very negative to me and when I do use it it is always in a negative sense. I'm trying to stop using it period but it is difficult with how ingrained in the culture it is.

  • Use it. They're fine with selling and profiting off it, so I don't think they care. Or in my opinion, they shouldn't care because they proved that profits are more important to them than people. Even their own people.

  • They are allowed to sing it in my opinion. If they weren't ok with white people using that word during song then they should have set an example of some sort by not using that word in their lyrics in the first place.

  • I say go for it. I mean I don't like the word, but the whole "It's our word and white people can't say it" thing is a complete double standard.

  • No, you should only be singing songs with the term "cracker" in it. Strange that anyone of any race can use it and it not be considered racist.
