In an article released last week for Time Magazine, writer Touré asserts that it’s not OK for white people to use the word nigger (or its crazy cousin, nigga).
According to Touré, white people can say nigger if they are:
1. Reporting on, commenting on, or writing some kind of think piece involving the word nigger.
2. Using the word as part of a play, film, song, piece of visual art or stand-up comedy routine.
Is that alright with you?
