I Love Katt Williams

Katt Williams is a really funny stand-up comedian who uses the word nigger with such repetition and with so much emphasis that after watching his act, I felt kind of deprived. I want to say nigger too! Of all ethnic slurs, it is clearly the most offensive, yet somehow the most ubiquitous in our present pop culture.

When Katt Williams uses it, the word refers to a group whose coolness can never be usurped by White people. We are on the outside looking in, terminally lame.

But sometimes, when I watch Black comedians who aren’t as funny, I start to fret about their use of negative Black stereotypes. I start to wonder why it’s okay for Black people to find humor in being perceived so disparagingly…as thugs, or womanizers, or just illiterate. It’s hard to imagine Jews or Asians taking such pleasure in a stance of “Look how cheap we are!” or “We love to work at nail salons!”   I just don’t get it, but I’m sure there’s some explanation. Richard Pryor probably had the answer.

I brought this up in the car, and pointed out that Asians don’t greet each other with “Hey, Ching-Chong!” This brought laughter from certain quarters, but not from any husbands who shall remain nameless here. I am serious about this, though, so please feel free to enlighten me.

Meanwhile, Madonna has now accused her detractors of being racist, saying that prejudice is behind all the controversy: “I think a lot of people have a problem with the fact that I’ve adopted an African child, a child who has a different color skin than I do.”

Poor Madonna!   She doesn’t watch TV or read newspapers, so no wonder she’s so out of it. I personally wouldn’t mind getting to carry around a cute African   baby. I would also like to have a platypus. Oh well.   If only I was Katt Williams, I could tell Madonna, “Nigger, take that red Kabbala shit off that baby’ wrist!” She will never, ever be that baby’ mama, no matter how many talk-show hosts she finds time to bother.

    I think you need to look in the mirror and see that either you want to be black or you are a undercover racist with an excuse to call black people niggers, which is a totally different word than nigga. Like many, you probably don’t get it, (even some black folks don’t so don’t trip.) but you gotta ask yourself, why would you care?

    There is no difference between the word nigga and the word nigger. Both words are words of sheer, self-hatred. It is a disgrace that black people, unlike no other ethnic group in the world has allowed such a negative word to have become a part of the language. Yet it is blacks who want to yell racism when someone of another color uses the word N word in anger, annoyance or just to shame blacks with that word. Some blacks think they can kick everybody else’s butt who uses the N word. Forget it THAT is not going to happen. To celebrate a so-called comedian like Katt Williams’ continued use of the N word is the worst kind of insult imaginable. Whites and other non-black races take pleasure while watching the black race continually and willingly destroy their own culture and achievements by the use of this horrible denigrating word N, whether it is -nigga or nigger. Millions of black youth don’t even know their own personal history. Yet they know one thing–they are an “N”. How pathetic and sad

    I find it interesting that you don’t know any minorities or hell for that matter any people who make disparing remarks abotu themselves, their race, their culture, etc.

    Ned is wrong or again doesn’t know many minorities. It could be that only some people are comfortable with sharing the side that they hide in front of strangers and at work with friends. I know plenty of Jews, Filipino, Hispanics, etc who do the same thing and if you watch their comedy you’ll see it too. It’s a classic case of class clown who makes fun of himself before others can. It’s nothing new.

    As far as it being self-hatred that’s a knee jerk statment. It is said if a person who calls themself nigga truly believes that he is one and can’t break out of the mold but in real life many people of all walks of life use it and it is not a reflection of where they are in life.
