A Dutch glossy magazine, whatever that means, recently published an article in which it referred to Barbadian singer Rihanna as a Nig**r b**ch. The female writer who penned the piece has since not only apologized but also resigned from her 8-year post.
Rihanna was understandably not flattered and like all bonafide celebrity, took to Twitter to voice her displeasure. She accused the paper of being racist and nonsensical in its usage of the English language. (Even though in her tirade, she forgot that it was not proper to use ‘u’ instead of ‘you’). She accused the magazine of ‘intent of abasement’. Rihanna also took the liberty to speak on my behalf, ending her tweet with, ”On behalf of my race, f*** off!”
I am embarrassed right now. No, no. Not because of the nig*** comment. Such things don’t bother me too much. That doesn’t mean I condone such racist and derogatory remarks. I don’t. I am embarrassed that RiRi elected herself my spokesperson. Having her speak on one’s behalf is belittling to the person.
Rihanna is not exactly doing too much to uplift her proud black race. Pardon me but she puts the ‘basement’ in ‘abasement’. With her increasing erratic and ‘girls gone wild’ behavior, tweeting topless pics and just recently, tipping $8000 at a strip joint. I am not sure she makes such a great ambassador to any race. Sorry RiRi!
I am curious about how much Rihanna really hates being called the ‘N’ word since she recently tweeted a photo of her holding a toddler she lovingly refered to as her ‘lil nig**r’. No word yet on if the kid was offended. Some of her songs also use the N word liberally. Maybe it’s just a example of ‘good for the goose’?
So on behalf of all decent women, I would like to say to Rihanna, Gr*w up!
Just my take.
