Suge Knight Would Rather Be Called “N*$ga” Than “African-American”


When you have Suge Knight and a camera, one can never be too certain how things will turn out. Suge recently caught up with TMZ and when things shifted to the topic of the N-word, the former label head had some pretty interesting things to say.

“A lot of times when people say the N-word, I like that better than African-American,” said Suge to TMZ. “We’re not from Africa, we’re black,” he added. Continuing on the questionable limitations surrounding the term, Suge says that athletes and Eminem shouldn’t’ be barred from using the word when it’s done in private anyway.

    Then be called black-american or just black. Wanting to be called the n-word is a little something called STOCKHOLM SYNDROME or just plain stupidity. I’d rather be called african-american or black than any racial slur.

  • Childish Gambino

    Nigger is just a word.
    If you dont like it dont say it but dont force your beliefs on someone else.

    “You’re not an African because you’re born in Africa. You’re an African
    because Africa is born in you. It’s in your genes…. your DNA….your
    entire biological make up. Whether you
    like it or not, that’s the way it is. However, if you were to embrace
    this truth with open arms….my, my, my, what a wonderful thing” –

    So proud to be an African.
