  • Loni just need to sit this one out... she ain’t winning.

  • But you also have to think, name one successful white person in the rap industry that says the N-word. There is none because you’re a successful rapper.and I don’t want to do this bc I’ll get backlash, but.... when you have someone of color saying this type of derogatory terms it doesn’t really make sense. And whenever you hear a person saying if that is not of color you get uncomfortable, so we have a right to say it. Because when we’re around other people of color that makes us feel comfortable, but when other people who are not of color saying it that makes us feel uncomfortable. So when were using these terms it’s just a greeting but when other people use it it’s just a double meaning under it.

  • I agree with Loni and Amanda is annoying. The word is a SLUR!

  • There is one point that no one talked about that i like to mention. Personally, I think the real issue is the SOUND of the N word. It has a feeling to the sound that its "satisfying" to sing a long to. This is no excuse, just an observation. I wanted to mention it since the one in the middle asked "why do u wanna say the word so badly?". I dont think that ppl love to say the word itself but more like melody wise it sounds better than to skip it. Its kinda unsatisfying. Thats the main issue

  • So I can spend my money, give you MY MONEY and then not be able to sing that song? WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • if you're white, or non-black, don't say it. don't sing along to it. there's a reason it's a derogatory term , there's a reason it's offensive. personally, when listening to a song containing the word, i always skip that word when singing along. i would provide you a link to a tutorial on how to do this if necessary. as for the argument the word shouldn't be said at all by any group of people, is a far reach. the black culture has taken the word back, and it's for them to use, not us. and also, giving the argument that "well people use other offensive terms so why can't i say this word?" because if your intent is to say that offensive and derogatory term that's even worse, not to mention you're hurting a lot of people by saying it. singing along to a song isn't a valid excuse. she was skipping a lot of words during singing along, she could've easily dodged that word as well, not to say if she hadn't it would've been okay. my point IS: don't say it. it's literally. that. goddamn. simple.

  • Y'all we all make mistakes and the fact that everyone is dragging her for a mistake she accidently made cause she was singing along to a song she grew up with.

  • Respect yourself and others will respect you.” with gold at both ends.” “One of the greatest regrets in life is being what others would want you to be, rather than being yourself.” “If you want to be respected by others, the great thing is to respect yourself.

  • Thank you loni!

  • I agree w loni!! Love u!

  • Loni, Loni, Loni 😒😒😒🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️

  • Y’all missing the whole point in what she was saying they made him take the word out because they didn’t want to give it any power what so ever💯🅿️. Loni was right cause it you refine everything a word that means it the new meaning so why you hurt when someone that non black uses it they just using it as it’s “refined”as which proves it isn’t a empowered word because if it was their wouldn’t be a debate about empowerment🤷🏾‍♀️point blank🅿️💯💯💯

  • She is going tooooo deep with it. Rappers are not thinking about telling their damn “story” everything time they say it. I honestly don’t like the word at all. But if there’s anyone who can say it, it’s black people only. Period.

  • Clapping for Loni and my chinita

  • If it’s in a song, expect to be singing along. Period. I personally don’t like saying it to anyone for the meaning behind.

  • Loni is right !

  • I say the word on the daily & I should stop !

  • “If your unsure don’t say it”

  • But let’s be honest If black people are empowering the words which has a negative meaning ,,, ya can’t be madd for others signing along... like ya da advertising it. And in nyc everyone says it and blacks aren’t saying anything about it. Blacks say it to races that aren’t even black and other races say to races that aren’t black.. At this point it’s just lingo .. it has no meaning. It’s just word “bro” “dude”... And for kids who have been saying it since they were young they don’t know any better they just follow what they see .. so if ya really had a problem with it .. it’s up to u guys to fix it

  • How are they telling a story calling each other that 😏

  • Loni 🙄

  • I agree with Loni, stop using it

  • As a Hispanic, our race is a hell of a mix between whites, blacks and natives and not even that makes me say the N word🤷🏼‍♀️

  • The girl in the middle gets on my nerves I agree with the big black girl loni people listen go her she knows what shes talking about. If you dont like people saying the N word then we should not use it or at least dont make it sound cool or funny to treat it with no respect. It's just plain and simple black people needs to stop using the N word in any entertainment world.i mean I'm part black and I dont even say the N word or on my black family side ever use it cause they know its not something to make fun of or think it's cool at all. I can talk about this issue all day but I already said it on the first part of the video of why this is just a huge piece if trash and we will never learn from it ever and will use the N word to get somewhere in life.

  • idk about this... i am Hawaiian and would want people to understand all aspects of my culture, good and bad. I feel like setting certain rules about words that ONLY some people can use because they belong to that culture is the exact opposite of trying to bring people together.

  • I agree with Loni just dont use the word! Black people are the ONLY people who use a racist and derogatory word to discribe their race as a way of "reclaiming it" or "cultural cultural colloquialism" or "using it to express a black experience". No other race uses a racial slur that has been used against them because they understand how stupid that is.

  • Amanda is ghetto send her uneducated ass back to the hood

  • Came to this video too to say Loni dumb as hell

  • Bruh the girl in the middle needa stfu like bish if it’s a negative word no one should use it

  • I honestly don’t care who uses the word

  • Let Adrienne talk

  • You don’t always tell a story duh. It’s up to black people to let the friends know that that’s not OK to say it. Because there’s People who grew up in the streets and say the word even though they’re not back. You have to correct them

  • I like The Real but this is NOT a topic they handled well at all.

  • Why would she bring pronouns into this..

  • And a lot of black people use the n word to put black men down.

  • Yes Loni!

  • Other what ? ONE OF YOU IS BLACK

  • Thesaurus.com is free. I don’t see why you can’t find a different adjective to describe someone.

  • I’m not racist and I never mean to offend anyone it’s never my intention. Just my personal opinion I believe it’s just a song and nothing to it you know!!!!! Like music has different moods and if it’s a fun goofy great song why bring the mood down if the song was serious and telling a story of like traumatic experiences and so forth I get it don’t say it.

  • Honesty I agree with Loni if people don’t want others to use the word then don’t. Like Loni said people are making money from it! What do you expect for others who listen to the music. I get it I know the word has a lot of history to it but come on don’t like people saying it don’t use it as often or just stop it. Point Blank Period!!!!!!!!!

  • Loni is just cancelled at this point😭 she don’t know what the hell shes talking about and she’s the darkest mf up there🥴

  • No one should use this word. It’s like saying you can sin but I can’t. If the artist knows he has many multi colored fans that don’t use that word.

  • In my experience being Mexican and hearing Mexicans saying the N word when Mexicans say the N word they don't use it thinking of black ppl. It's just a word to refer to each other. It's been so popularized that it's just another slang word to call each other now. But we don't say it to black ppl because we know that it takes on a whole different context. But when we say it to each other it's like us saying guey which means foo.

  • I agree with Jeannie as an ADULT you know the difference stop it!

  • Sorry but Amanda is completely wrong I agree with Loni

  • Idk who the hell there guest host is but damn Maybe what they should do then only sell the songs to only black ppl I personally NEVER used that word bc I don’t like it and I hate it when it’s in a song

  • Keep Amanda on here. Please.

  • Going by Loni's argument a teacher watches a movie or documentary about racism with blackface and decide to wear blackface to school because they think it looks cool. This becomes a national issue and they talk about it on the show. Loni will be backing/supporting the white teacher correct? They did nothing wrong AT ALL!? Afterall it was in a movie so they shouldn't have shown it if they didn't want people to imitate it. Knowing how two face she's shown herself to be here I don't know.

  • So once again black people are held responsible for the actions of their oppressors? Black people should choose whether they want to use the word or not. Not be told to stop using it themselves. Why must African Americans regulate themselves so other races can act right? It's really not that hard to not say ONE word for an adult who has an average vocabulary of 10,000.

  • I say wassup my ninja😂

  • Also rapping isn’t always about experiences lol it’s about drugs and sex and bitches most of the time -so why is the n word in there

  • That girl keeps saying it’s all about who says it but doesn’t anwser why they say it

  • I agree with loni. Get rid of it.

  • So why didnt any of these dummies bring up the fact that JLO used the word in a song she did as well. Why isn't anyone using that non-singing ass JLO as an example....DUMMIES!!!!!

  • Loni’s michael jackson reference made no sense. She proved Amanda’s point with that one.

  • ooooooo Loni and that new girl not gonna make it, the side-eye sighs remind me of the good ole days with Tamar.

  • if i want to say it as a black person i should i have right just becos people can’t skip a word

  • Loni BYE! you don’t you don’t use it if you choose not to but if you do it still doesn’t give ANY non black person the right to use it PERIODT

  • How many think Tia’s non black person is her husband?

  • Whitey has promoted self destructive lifestyles among black folks since the beginning by funding gangster rap through their control of music studios and and other media outlets. They have made celebrating pimping, drug dealing, gang banging and shallow materialism the way to destroy black folks instead putting on white hoods and burning crosses. But hey anything to make a buck right?
