    If that word was not used by black people it would call out all those racists who use it. He has to justify it because of his back catalogue. I used to think like Jay-Z then I evolved.

    Shame that Oprah was riding his …. tho. It’s a bit cringe making. This is all PR, I still like Jay Z, he is clever but I am not taken in.

  • Inga's Left Nipple

    Why does he act so uncomfortable during interviews? Well, when he interviews with white people, anyway…

  • BlackSuperior

    And also the N word is wrong I am sorry Jay, He say we use it to change the meaning of the word.

    If that is the case then, if another race use it towards us, then we should not get mad and act like we want to fight. It is stupid to use the word I don’t care how much money you make.

    We keep giving these excuse and it logically don’t make sense. The O was right, that was maybe the last words our black hung men women and children heard and thats got to stand for something.

    I pray for our RACE TO WAKEUP.

    I agree. The older you get, the more your views start to evolve. I strongly disagree with the use of the N-word. We are the only culture that uses such a horrible term to degrade each other in public. When do hear white people calling each white trash as a term on endearment? Jews calling each other k**es? or Hispanics calling each sp**s? Shameful…

    Thank u – amen of course you can listen to black music and still be racist, he is just stringing words for Oprah to say, “I had a lightbulb moment”. He has to theorise what he does to appeal to all those university educated people.

    Through that whole interview all yall focused on was his reasons for not eliminating the N word? I understand Oprah’s position but as a person who uses the word regularly I understand Jay too…Like he said in another interview if a white man called him boy he would be offended…its the intent of the word you may not agree but I understand…I thought it was a good interview and good look for him…I love Jay and has loved him since ’96 I knew that man was going places…lol he looks good, he clever in his responses and he’s humorous…whats there not to like? He’s arrogant?? so what!! I would be too..he’s paid the cost to be the boss…ITS THE ROCCCC!!!!

    Thank you, well said. You made me laugh, it’s true. He is protecting his back catalogue. Is he gonna sing those songs at Glastonbury to a mostly white audience and have them repeating it back. In my country you say that word on reality tv and you are white you get shoved off telly. A football commentator lost his job for saying someone was a lazy Nword. And the stupid man did not understand what he said wrong.

    He also acknowledges about what he has said about women in his songs but he still sings those songs. He has to justify to protect his back catalogue and keep his cred and stay in with his “boys”.
