okay so it’s definitely not “smart” for her to do that, but also, it’s the literal lyric. And calling her “racist” for that is reaching imo

 

also, it baffles me how much time Gen Z etc spends on finding people saying/typing the N- word (sometimes from different countries or even kids, using it unknowningly) instead of fighting against people with actual racist acts and intentions.

 

anyways, i hope charli won’t get more shit from it. People were calling her out in collabing with her

it might be because her last name is a derogatory word that was used towards polish people but tbh i don’t think that’s the reason it’s happening right now

LOL that gives me the energy of woke teens deadass trying to cancel the Spanish language because the Spanish word for "black" looks like a racial slur in English

idk why we are talking about the incident involving caroline on charli's thread but as a non black person im not going to disregard kelelas initial response to it. Caroline took the time to type out that slur. she didn't just share the kanye song, she wrote the lyric out which isn't racist in intent it's surely a bonehead move. i'm sure everyone involved has moved on and people are just bringing it up to start shit/troll. 

 

anyway i hope baby comes out in the next two weeks !! i don't think i've been this excited about a charli project in years and i highly doubt anyones actually getting cancelled, it's just tiktok trolling and charli isn't going to be cancelled lol i mean she survived the iggy azalea moment

so, a historical fact about that, the origin of the n-word, as well as other racial slurs in english, stems from latin languages, and not the other way around. the thing is, most of them don't mean anything harmful originally. "negro", for example, is the only way to say black in spanish. another racial slur in english, p*ckaninny, derives from brazilian portuguese (i think) word "pequenino", which means little ones. this has nothing to do with the charli xcx thread but i thought sharing this might be educational for the american audience, especially for the dumb woke teens that be saying shit like "cancel spanish".

 

anyway, here's my 2 cents on caroline's situation from my black latino pov: i don't think she's racist for quoting the n-word from jay-z & kanye, she's just dumb and stupid. she was obviously wrong for saying it but does that make her racist? i don't think so. americans seems to have this weird obsession with that word that i don't get it, but what i think is, if it is bad, no one should say it. and if you don't want other people to say it, definitely don't put in songs. but that's just me.

 

sorry for the essay lmao and since this IS the charli xcx thread, not the caroline thread, or kelela thread or even the historical racial slurs thread, lemme just say good girls is that bitch :sluttybunny:

How braindead is this? Aren't you able to think with your head? 

If only a small amount of these efforts in calling out missteps were given to fight the real racists, homophobes, transphobes... The thing is racism is systemic, nobody's morally superior, we all got the stink on us and this has become a race in moral superiority. And I just don't understand why most of these cancelings are directed towards allies who are clearly in good faith. One thing is to educate someone, Who May have perpetuated a bad behaviour out of sheer ignorance or stupidity and teaching them the errors of their way. The other is canceling people Who are clearly not racist and isolate the community more and more. Look what they did to Lindsay Ellis or EVEN Contrapoints.
