Jeantel: It’s Racist When Limbaugh Says ‘N-gga.’

From Mediaite:

Yes, Rachel Jeantel Did Think It Was ‘Racist’ When Rush Limbaugh Said ‘N*gga’

By Matt Wilstein | July 17, 2013

… Rachel Jeantel got an opportunity to respond directly to Rush Limbaugh during an extended interview with Marc Lamont Hill on HuffPost Live Wednesday morning. Despite Limbaugh’s insistence that he now his Jeantel’s permission to say “nigga” with an “a,” Jeantel said the conservative radio host’s comments did “feel racist” to her…

Tuesday, Limbaugh used Jeantel’s explanation as an excuse to use the “non-racist” version of the word on his radio show, saying, “I think can [say it] now, isn’t that the point? Because it’s not racist.”

Apparently, the concept of sarcasm is entirely new to both ‘Doctor’ Hill and Mediaite.

HuffPost Live’s Hill played the Limbaugh clip for Jeantel and asked her to respond. When he first asked her if she knew who Limbaugh is, Jeantel replied, “No, who’s that?”

Thereby cementing her position as quintessential low information person.

After listening to the clip, she said, “When you say it out loud in person in front of people, that’s disrespectful,” she said, adding, “It is racist for an adult.”

Hill attempted to get some clarification from Jeantel, asking, “Does it matter whether the adult is black or white?”

“Yes!” Jeantel replied, with little hesitation.

“When you heard Rush Limbaugh say it just then, did it feel racist to you?” Hill asked.

“Well, yes,” Jeantel said. “But I can’t judge him.”

“It felt racist to me too,” Hill responded.

Thank goodness for her clarification. So now we know that it’s racist if an adult or a white person or a conservative says the ‘N-Word.’

But isn’t it kind of racist to base rules for language on age and the color of one’s skin and their political ideology?

  1. I never heard him say it. I heard him spell it a couple of times, but I never heard him SAY it. Can you spell in a racially insensitive way? D-U-M-B-A-S-S…

    How long before hearing someone say “N-Word” as a substitute for using the actual word will be even more offensive? Marc Lamont Hill would probably spew something along the lines of “N-word is even more offensive than just saying n*gga because it couches the racism of the cracker who said it in a comfortable euphemism which in turn allows their racism to go unrecognized and unpunished. And we all want whitey punished, don’t we?

    Who’s the racist again?

    Obambi and his friends used it as young adults. Then the audio version Obambi says it out loud.
    The best part is Obambi at Occidental get caught in a lie from his black friend when Obambi explained he hated another student for talking correctly, walking normal, and dating a white woman.
    Then he writes his buddy found out the other big lie Obambi had been telling. A big lie that Obambi said he had to constantly cover his tracks over. He then explains his friend found out his real name and told all his friends who asked him what did his real name mean in English. He answered “Blessed”. So, as we know he was booted and went to NYC and slept in alley because his new Muslim roommate a friend set him up to live with didn’t answer the door. Then finally he answers the door with a half-dressed woman with whom his new roommate was doing cocaine with. And we already know the joke about inhaling as that is the point to inhale. Such humor is such a bad influence. And no doubt what students reading his lying novel will do with the always trying to get laid part. Didn’t mention get laid with girls so somehow he was politically correct 3 decades ago or did not want to lie if he preferred other young men. Of course it’s not fair for anyone to suggest he is gay, as cocaine addiction is known to make people have out of the ordinary sex. People prostitute themselves to anyone for cocaine and heroin.
    That is why there is so much aids in middle-east countries aside their strict rules though occasionally they are found out and executed according to Sharia law. Have we heard one word
    from the king chastising these countries for their intolerance against gays as he does in our own country where it is not a problem.

    I’m glad these three women….I mean this one woman has now become the arbiter of all things racist in terms of vocabulary. Woman, I’m not sure you could properly define the word “rock” with multiple choices and a geology magazine in your hand.

  4. Steve, please … let me post the new N-word. Please …

      Don’t do it Jack. Let them be disrespectful to themselves, each other, and their cracker baby’s they threaten to kill in their violence and militancy.

      Here is our leaders vision since high school, to the new world order. A world of marshal law discipline with the overpopulation of Muslims and only a few white people in the distant future.
      This is just a tip of pages and pages of his racism and shame on the media for not standing up for Glenn Beck’s harmless statement of his feelings about Obama’s dislike after he read his book. I wonder if he read it all. I don’t see how anyone could because the thought process pattern jumping, and his vanity, and the audacity of this man disliking and calling his black roommate an Uncle Tom. His search for those that were willing to bid his dream of running the world.

      excerpts from page 85-86 Dreams From My Father – Barack Obama

      “In fact, you couldn’t even be sure that everything you had assumed to be an expression of your black, unfettered self— the humor, the song, the behind-the-back pass—– had been freely chosen by you. At best, these things you could choose as your own was withdrawal into a smaller and smaller coil of rage, until being black meant only the knowledge of your own powerlessness, of your own defeat. And the final irony: Should you refuse to defeat and lash out at your captors, they would have a name for that, too, a name that could cage you just as good. Paranoid. Militant. Violent. Nigger.

      Over the next few months, I looked to corroborate this nightmare vision. I gathered up books from the library – Baldwin, Ellison, Hughes, Wright, DuBois. At night I would close the door to my room, telling my grandparents I had homework to do, and there I would sit and wrestle with words, locked in suddenly desperate argument, trying to reconcile the world as I’d found it with the terms of my birth.

      Only Malcolm X’ autobiography seemed to offer something different. His repeated acts of self-creation spoke to me; the blunt poetry of his words, his unadorned insistence on respect, promised a new uncompromising order, martial in its discipline, forged through sheer force of will. All the other stuff, the talk of blue-eyed devils and apocalypse, was incidental to that program, I decided, religious baggage that Malcolm himself seemed to have safely abandoned toward the end of his life. And yet, even as I imagined myself following Malcolm’s call, one line in the book stayed me. He spoke of a wish he’d once had, the wish that the white blood that ran through him, there by an act of violence, might somehow be expunged. I knew that, for Malcolm, that wish would never be incidental. I knew as well that traveling down the road to self-respect my own white blood would never recede into mere abstraction. I was left to wonder what else I would be severing if and when I left my mother and my grandparents at some uncharted border.
      And, too: If Malcolm’s discovery toward the end of his life, that some whites might live beside him as brothers in Islam, seemed to offer some hope of eventual reconciliation, that hope appeared in a distant, future, in a far-off land. In the meantime, I looked to see where the people would come from who were willing to work toward this future and populate this new world.”

      I don’t think things went as he planned, but while he can trash Christians, Catholics, and patriotic people, he simply won’t say one unkind word of the Islam religion that leads to violence. He has done nothing but apologize, blamed a video, led to massive spread of Al Qaeda. Though he’s gone Hollywood star crazy, even Osama Bin Laden, Maj Hasan, and 9/11 high-jackers, sought strippers. That is why 40 virgins is such a novelty.

      as tempting as this bait may be,

      remember this advice;

      “discipline 007,

      discipline.”

    • I wasn’t clear … I mean the N that ends with ‘a’

    Trying to filter out the words of an idiot and siphon off anything that might make sense is like trying to rake the Sahara looking for a piece of pepper.

    Many might try to do it but why?

    In past years people would just ignore her. And anyone who gave her verbal garbage any time would also.

    Most of us here have better things to do. I realize the allure of pointing out the obvious disconnections in her brain but such should be elementary. Academic, even. But now we live in an age where even laughing at her utter, yet apparently complex level of stupidity is considered racist.

    So….I’m a racist. Guess I’d better be a good one.

    Thanks Rusty, and good call. Now I feel the need for a cigar while I sift through chicken scratchings, looking for bible verse. Nothing to be gained here with Ms. Jeantel
