I’ll preface my response by saying I never say the N word. I’m a rapper, I never rap the N word. Even if rapping a popular song with the N word in it, I self edit. Many of my black friends call me “their N word” I do not respond in kind.
I say that to say this. You’re picking the wrong battles. This is the problem with this PC era, a man who is plainly not a racist and fights for many black issues, used the word in effect to shit on some plainly racist people, and you’re using this as an opportunity to shit on the dude ON YOUR SIDE. This is just dumb. He wrote it in print mind you as well. He didn’t go blurting it out.
Pick your battles, this is a dumb ass hill to die on bro.
