Ridding the World of Niggers (Niggas)!
Nigger, nigga, spade, coon, jigaboo, darky, darkie, darkey, pickaninny, piccaninny, picaninny-- ethnic slur; offensive name for Black person. It is otherwise a word expressive of racial hatred and bigotry. Many in the African American ethic group continue to refer to themselves and other African Americans as niggers (niggas). This is a campaign to provoke an informed and deliberate decision about one's self (to include one's family and community) and one's commitment to building a world/social environment that is just, civil, and authentic.

You do not need to send him to the back door. He will go without being told. In fact, if there is no back door, he will cut one for his own benefit. …. Carter G. Woodson (1933). Mis-education of the Negro

Greatest weapon in the hands of the oppressor is the minds of the oppressed. ... Steve Biko
