If I Did It: Why I Might Say “Nappy Headed Ho’s” (even though I didn’t)


1.      Anti-double standard. Blacks are allowed to disparage other races, including their own with relative impunity. So perhaps I felt a little resentful of this double standard. Perhaps I am annoyed with always having to pay for the sins of my fathers. And so in a moment of weakness, I give voice to this subconscious resentment.


2.    Inter-generational strife. The younger generation seems to have less respect for traditional values. Now they’ve gone and got all tatted up. Women are ballers. Kids be havin’ sex. Got no respect. I waited for sex. God dammit. They should too.


3.     Okay fine, I am a racist.
