Blackish did a brilliant episode on the N word this week and there was a list of rules on who can say it. This is not a debate on who should or shouldn't or brothascomics viewpoint on "the word". This is a visual representation of "The Rules". By following these rules, it may save you from an ass kicking at some point in time in your life. Just kiddin( but not really)!
The Word: Black-ish on ABC
Black people: You can say the word but not in mixed company( meaning around white people).
De mexicanos no se les permite decirlo. No estoy seguro de por qué, pero no se le permite.
Dominicans are allowed to say the word!
They seem a little too happy about it tho!
Ok, if you are Puerto Rican but look like this, no bueno. You cannot say the word. Not sure why, but sometimes relationship rules are complicated.
These are the rules. I did not make them up but it best to follow them. I know it may be confusing to you,( it confuses us too) but we can all get along better if we follow the rules.
