David Banner took to Instagram this morning to question his followers about the ever-debated use of the N-word.
Specifically, he wants to know why both white AND ‘half-black’ rappers ‘wanna say the word n*gga.’
“Have you ever wondered why white rappers, or half-black rappers, or whatever you want to call them, they always wanna say the word ‘n*gga’ right? But they never say ‘cracker,’ or ‘devil’ or any other derogatory term about any other race but blacks.” he asked in the now-deleted clip.
He then turned his attention towards Black people as a whole, questioning their own use of the N-word.
“Where do you draw the line? What can’t people call you? What can’t people pay you to do? When is it enough? What do you stand for?”
Vibe magazine ran an article on David’s videos — referring to them as a ‘conversation starter’ — and David took to Twitter to pop off on the publication.
No shade, to David. But he definitely did question the use of the N-word by “half-black” rappers. David choosing to question the use of the word by white rappers in addition to that doesn’t negate the fact.
