*Here we go again. It’s something we’re seeing more and more. Non-black folks feeling real, real comfortable saying the n-word on camera for all the world to see.
This time it’s a room full of white Victora’s Sceret models … just having a real good time and having no hesitation singing the word “nigga” in Cardi B’s line: “I don’t wanna choose/And I’m quick, cut a nigga off, so don’t get comfortable.”
Fortunately, people on Twitter called them on it.
That n-word was too loud and clear for there only to be one black girl in this room https://t.co/BoY9xcyWUL

If you’re not black, don’t say the N word. Point. Blank. Period.
So who said it ?

Cardi B herself also retweeted a tweet (seen below) mentioning that fact.

OK, we see Cardi B’s spoken on it, but what about Victoria’s Secret? So far just crickets.
And then there’s the opinion of one responder whose comments reflect what a lot of black people think about the issue:
If people don’t want other races, in particular white people, using the N-word, stop putting it in songs. If artists want them to buy the music, come to the shows and show support, then show some respect and use another word to say what you want to say. Because in a way, it’s encouraging the behavior and giving them an excuse.
Where do you stand on the subject?
