No pundit has ever written about the origins of the 'N word. Think about it. Its born out of the abysmal ignorance of an almost illiterate society when you think about it. There is a river in Africa called the Niger. There is a country in Africa called Nigeria on the coastline that colonial ships could reach. The Niger river empties out into the Gulf of Guinea.
So "Where'd you get that slave?" "I got him from the N' word River" "Oh he's an N'word." Really ignorant pathetic white history. I would tell me son to tell bullies that Niger rhymes with Tiger and that's what you'll get if you call me anything but 'Sir'.
