“I don’t usually get offended, regardless of what your nationality is – if I feel like you’re not using it as a racial slur,” Those were the words of African-American female rapper Remy Ma.

Speaking alongside Joe Budden, Scottie Beam, and Brandon Jenkins on Revolt’s State of the Culture talk show, the panel discussed a recent video circulating online of a white rapper by name Lil Xan using the racial slur.

“I hear it so frequently from people who aren’t black people. Like Fat Joe, he’s the blackest Spanish guy on this planet earth and I’ve never questioned did it,” she added.

Take a look at the video below and share with us your thoughts. Will you be ok if a non-white person you are cool with uses the N-word in a non-derogatory manner in your presence? I most definitely will not.

TSR Staff: Kyle Anfernee: @Kyle.Anfernee ?: @revolttv #Roommates, I’m sure we’ve all heard the n-word by now. It’s a word that’s heavily used in the African American community, so much that most of us aren’t even phased when we hear it, that is until another race says it. On this weeks episode of ‘State of the Culture,’ Remy Ma opened up about not being offended when someone who’s NOT black says the n-word. ___________________________________ “I don’t usually get offended, regardless of what your nationality is if I feel like you’re not using it as a racial slur.” ___________________________________ “I hear it so frequently from people who aren’t black people.
