Who is the Nigger?
Biko Mandela Gray

Hello Mr. Biko Mandela Gray.

I read your entire contribution. I scrolled past it for two days because the word nigger, or niggah causes visceral discomfort.

I applaud your courage for stepping up and refusing to be silent. We’re at a critical junction as a human species and serious painful dialogue needs to take place yesterday.

As for myself I have evolved past the cultural indoctrination of our dominant culture. I am not a nigger, and will not allow myself to defined as such. I am a black man who is part of the global majority.

To my caucasian brothers and sisters if you take a DNA test you will probably find out that you are as black as I am.

Come on home!
