A man in the United Kingdom was given clearance for using the n-word recently – by a North Staffordshire magistrate who believed him when he said to use it as a “term of endearment.” According to The Guardian, local man Christopher Jones was initially charged by local authorities and courts with racial abuse when he used the word while addressing a black man.
A self-proclaimed fan of rap music, Jones pleaded not guilty, and told magistrates that he used the phrase habitually in his neighborhood. “I am not a racist,” he was quoted as saying to area newspaper The Sentinel. “It was used as slang. For me it is a term of endearment, not something racist.”
He added to the paper, “I like hip-hop and it is a word that is used all the time in music.”
While talking with the website, a Crown Prosecution Service spokesperson described the incident by saying that Jones had “repeatedly shouted [the word] from a window to a group on the street” on Sept. 10 of this year.
“Mr. Jones accepted that he used the language alleged but denied it was motivated by hostility,” the representative added. “This was accepted by the magistrates and Mr. Jones was acquitted.”
Dude kinda looks like he wish he was a black dude with some Tahiry cakes in his face anyway..SMH!
