POVs for this Discussion

Summary: African American singers are seen to be using the N-word too often in their rap lyrics. This is contradictory to the stance of their own ancestors which stated that no person, especially white people, should be allowed to address any black with the N-word. Now that it has become so common among the black rappers themselves, they seem to be demeaning the history- long struggles of their ancestors.
