ch: it would depend on the white person...as my earlier post stated....there are whites among us who are hip hop...whatever that is.....the point is not to confuse culture with socalled "race"....africans as well as african americans do not participate in hip hop and don't understand the music, symbols, etc....ie, cultural markers....so that they'll hear niggas...and confuse with black people, but if black people are using the term in different ways then it is clear that they don't equate nigga with blackness... it is quite complicated, in my opinion, ....not as simiplisitic or liberal as Randall Kennedy's characterization of the word nigger, by the way....because clearly, you can use the word and mean hate....both blacks and whites use the word in this way.....sorry...I don't have any neat answers!
Oh...i did recall that moment in Ghost Dog....
