    Memoirs of a house nigga


    Lawrenceville,Georgia 1998.This placed looked wierd to me and I would soon figure out why.
    The schools were integrated obviously in 1998 but the minds of the people I would come into
    contact with said, black, equals ignorance or a person who should be outcasted. I was 8 when I
    moved to Lawrenceville and being called a nigga/nigger would occur all too often for the next
    13 years of my life. Dictionary.com has 3 definitions of the word "nigger" and they are as follows:

    1. slang: extremely disparaging and offensive.
    a. black person
    b. a member of any dark skinned people.

    2. Slang: Extremely disparaging and
    a. person of any race or origin regarded
    as contemptible, inferior, Ignorant, etc.

    3. a victim of prejudice similar to that suffered by blacks,
    a person who is economically, politcally, or socially disenfranchised.

    I never researched the term until I was about 17 years old but I always got a bad feeling about being called
    a nigger unless it was in the form of the greeting "whassup my nigga" by my peers.
    I felt comfortable being called "nigga" by others african americans or blacks and noone else.
    This changed when I joined the military though, here I would have an opportunity to travel the world and meet people from
    everywhere. Now I'm being judged as a nigga/nigger and I'm being labeled as a "house nigger" because of my light skin tone,
    my extensive vocabulary, and ability to get along with people no matter what they were. My first encounter with this was
    with a white staff sergeant when I was stationed in England. He offered to let me go home early if I stuffed a white airman
    in a trash can. When I declined the offer he said, "oh come on man, aren't you mad about the way "our" people persecuted
    "your" people for years"? Then he went on to call me an "Uncle Tom", a term used for blacks who denies association with other
    blacks. He quickly bit his words but I had no animosity towards him though because it was African kings who sold thier own
    people that were beneath them to European slave traders. (Piero Scaruffi's knowledge base), so his ignorance was gleaming by now.His attempt
    to belittle me or black people in general made him look stupid. This was my first encounter in the military but not my last
    . I would go on to be called "house nigger" by other dark-skinned service members and now I'm being judged on a level of black,
    not just black. My most recent and memorable experience was when I met my Ex-girlfriend in spain, I arrived believing that black was beautiful
    in spain and it is. shit, in hispanic culture the darker people are nicknamed "negros" and "negras". Negro for men, Negras for women.
    One day I had a discussion with my ex-girlfriend and she called me "oreo" and "house nigger".This point my mind is fucked up.
    I had come to the realization that no matter where in the world I go, I'd be a nigger and labeled as bad. I wrote this little piece
    for everyone who is judged for being something they can't change. Embrace it, use it for ammunition to do something good even
    though you're recieving negativity. If you are a light skinned black male, short, ugly, fat, gay,blind,deaf, or dumb, you are beautiful
    because "you" are different.
