Rush Limbaugh Claims He Can Say "N*gga" Now Because Rachel Jeantel Says It's OK

Categories: Media Watch

Rachel Jeantel, the Miami Gardens 19-year-old thrust into the spotlight because of her testimony during the George Zimmerman trial, has been making the media rounds this week, and while on CNN's Pierce Morgan said that she doesn't believe the word "n*gga" is a racial term, no matter who says it.

Rush Limbaugh decided to jump all over it, and said "n*gga" on his radio show.

Here's a recap of Jeantel's statement on the word on CNN from Naked Politics:

"The whole world say it's a racist word," she said, adding that she believed people changed it around [and] It start spelling N-I-G-G-A..."

What's that mean to you? Morgan asked her.

"That mean a male," Jeantel responded, "any kind of male. Any kind. Chinese can say nigga. That's my Chino, nigga. They can say that."

There are limits, she said.

"But nigger," she added, stressing the pronunciation of the last two letters, "I'll advise you not to use that...because that's a racist word."

Limbaugh decided to take her advice literally.

Jeantel was on Huffington Post Live today and disagreed with Limbaugh's characterization of her statement.

Personally not only do I think that white people should never use the "n-word" or any of its variations, but I also think white people should stop asking why they can't use the n-word or any of its variations. If you don't get it at this point you never will. Just accept it and move on with your white lives.

If Rush Limbaugh can declare Rachel Jeantel as "the authority" on racism, then I can declare that Al Franken is The Authority on big, fat idiots, and, well, he already wrote a book describing Rush Limbaugh as just that.

Besides Rush being an idiot. This new "non racist" poster child is saying its ok to call a Chinese person (and by Chinese I am sure she is including all Asians) a "Chino nigga".

I always heard the term being used amongst an inner circle of friends. I mean it's like Italians being referred to by others as gangsters, but amongst themselves calling each other gangstas ? It's hood speak/slang ? Women can call each other the b or c word, even refer to one another as whores but a man does it, even say hoes and the gloves come off. Let the inner circle have it's affectionate terms for each other and stay clear and safe of using the term where it might offend another ?

Are some of you on this thread really going to say that some Blacks in Liberty City don't use the word nigga? Please! We all know that that word is used to refer to 'friend' 'my friend' and 'male'. Some of you need to come down to earth and speak the truth because there can be no real dialogue on race if we don't speak the truth. Our generation needs it and the next generation deserves that we speak the truth about race without hate.

He's got so few listeners left that he's probably received more attention from coverage of this story than when he actually said it.

A Department of Homeland Security passenger manifest shows that Limbaugh and his four buddies flew from the Dominican Republic on a Gulfstream IV jet owned by Premiere Radio Networks, which syndicates his radio program.

Limbaugh returned to Palm Beach, Florida on June 26 with Joel Surnow, "24"'s co-creator and executive producer and Howard Gordon, another of the Fox hit's executive producers (Hollywood agent Jeffrey Benson was also part of the Limbaugh quintet).

With all those guys in tow, it is unclear what the radio host needed with the 29 100mg Viagra pills listed on a seized property receipt.
