EtcetEraThread Kendrick Lamar calls out white fan for rapping n-word onstage with him at concert [Read OP]
Reason User Banned (3 Days): Arguing in bad faith.
Kendrick Lamar should have just told her before she went up on stage to clear up any confusion. If a black author asked me to be the voice of their novel for the audiobook version, and the book contained the n-word, i would say it. Similarly if i was cast in the part of a play, written by a black author, where a character said the n-word, i would assume they want me to say. So if a black lyricist wants me to repeat their lyrics, i don't think it’s unreasonable to confused about whether or not to say the n-word contained in those lyrics.

Reason User Banned (a week): Arguing in bad faith, and history of racist arguments
He’s done this before without interrupting. Obviously what was the case yesterday doesn’t necessarily carry over to today. But inviting her up there specifically to sing that specific song which makes specific use of that word and how quickly the music stopped gives me the impression that this was a bit of theater and preplanned choreography and him signaling his opinion on this going forward. That said, if that’s the case, he could have just tweeted that bit of info out instead of putting that girl at the mercy of the Twitter Moron Army.

I was discussing this with my wife yesterday evening in one of our high-brow chats we like to have by the fire. She pointed out that the universally employed expression for this orifice in England is actually quite racist. I agreed but bemoaned the lack of alternative. I could only come up with 'urethra' which is too formal and 'dick-hole' which just sounds stupid. The racist expression is 'Jap's eye' btw.

Seems ridiculous to me. It's in the song, she wasn't using it in any other context than repeating lyrics he already wrote. You can't have a word that can only be used by certain skin colours. I don't listen to much rap or hip hop but if the word is in the song, I'm gonna sing it. Freaky Friday is a recent example.

Well come now, why would he invite her to sing the song with him if she's not allowed to use some of the words. Even substituting something else on the fly seems dangerous here. Maybe he shouldn't be putting those words in his songs if his music isn't meant strictly for black people. Seems like he was just wanting to make a point and I guess that's fine but feel kind of bad for the fan.

EtcetEraThread Kendrick Lamar calls out white fan for rapping n-word onstage with him at concert
Reason User Banned(3 days): Bad faith argument and dismissing historical context
Kendrick Lamar is the fucking best there is right now, but it is actually in the song lyrics, so fuck that shit I'm singing it. Same with Money for Nothing and any other song with a slur. It's a slur in the context of a song lyric. If you don't want people to sing it, don't write it. You will never hear or read those words (or the Spanish version of it, which I don't think I've ever even pronounced since I've never heard it in a song) coming out from me in any other situation, those are heavy fucking loaded words with so much pain and hardships behind them, but a lyric is a lyric. And I say this after reading the whole thread, so to some of you: consider me whatever you want to consider me. My spirit is at ease regarding this.

*start moving on. I say in the sense that the debates over the use of the word are the cause of a lot of frayed tension between black people and non-black, and it’s usually the people who are trying to be respectful that are made to feel frustrated and sidelined. I say that as a white person who despises the word, would never use it in any context, and fully who acknowledges the centuries of abuse black people and people of colour have suffered. I simply cannot see how argument that ‘you can’t say it, but we can’ will bring us closer together and heal the seismic rift (that white people are very much the cause of, may I add).

Nigga isn't a slur. That's the whole reason it got popularized because trying to reclaim the n word is a tough pill to swallow so people like yourself sanitized it. When any black American chooses to actually use the n word they use it with the actual baggage it comes with. A lot more and more black youth do not use the term nigga with that baggage which is why increasingly they will give a pass to their closest non black friends using the term. You elderly folk created a situation that was designed to become a more accepted term over time.

I know there is a big historical backdrop in the meaning and context of the word, but as a non-American this is just an example of how crazy you are. So it's ok to write lyrics saying nigger, it's ok for the rapper saying it, but it isn't ok to sing along with the singer (except maybe?, depending of your color skin) even if you aren't calling anyone in particular nigger, it's just lyrics. You never feel like to start pondering, and wonder at what point stuff stopped making sense?

GamingThread [Homebrew] Outrun ported to Switch in just 5 hours
Reason User Warned: Piracy Derailment - Do not discuss piracy in threads about homebrew or emulation
Not older than Mickey Mouse, though. Which I will happily admit is a whole different problem. I will also add that the discussions we've had after I asked the scary questions has actually turned pretty interesting. I didn't know that Cannonball was a thing. That certainly changes things a bit. Though that is still the real Ferrari, but if he dumped the ROM from an arcade board and runs in on a Switch emulating that arcade board, it's... eh, depends on the local details now. Not entirely white, but probably not black either. I ask because I care. Both that people don't get in needless trouble and that old games aren't undermined by piracy. And I'll admit there's a lot of details about this I don't know, so I ask. As an aside, I would buy an official Outrun port for Switch, get the 3DS one and make it in HD and I'll buy it. Outrun is fun.

Hey, I'm happy to be proven wrong, I don't actually have any stake here. I cited some actual legal sources tho, and per it doesn't look like there have been any actual legal counterpoints provided. Though yes, for sure, I am taking an America-centric stance here. I can't speak for what's legal elsewhere.
