Should we get angry about a bunch of Sorority white girls singing n***as, or should we blame Kanye West and the rap industry for putting it in their songs in the first place

PIERS MORGAN: Be mad at Kanye, not girls singing n***as

Alpha Phi sorority sisters at the University of New Hampshire are under fire after a video surfaced of the group shouting the n-word in a song

  • The ladies were shown in the Snapchat video posted Tuesday dancing and singing along to Kanye West's 2005 rap hit 'Gold Digger' 
  • The Facebook page 'All Eyes of UNH' shared the footage to social media as a way to 'expose injustices' happening around the campus 
  • Several users criticized the group, while others backed up their choice to sing the popular song that contains the word in its lyrics 

A University of New Hampshire sorority is facing backlash after some of its white members were filmed shouting the n-word as they sang along to a Kanye West song.
Members of the Alpha Phi Sorority were shown in the Snapchat footage Tuesday afternoon dancing and singing along to Kanye West's 2005 rap hit 'Gold Digger.'
They belted out to the lyric 'she ain't messing with no broke n****' - and are now facing a furious outrage from critics who accuse them of racism.
The video was shared to the Facebook page 'All Eyes of UNH,' which is operated by community members at the university who have an 'intent to expose injustices' at the school, according to the 'about' section of the page.

The post read: 'A member of Alpha Phi Sorority put up this video of girls singing along to Gold Digger by Kanye West on her Instagram story. The girls sing the n-word without thinking of the implications.

'This is a showcase of ignorance and that the Panhellenic Council should do better in combating racism. The first step is addressing willful ignorance. #RacistUNH'

The post attracted attention from group members and the public alike, who criticized the club and some who also defended their right to free speech.

'This isn't about freedom of speech, it's about making the 92% of white students at UNH more socially aware so that people of color feel more comfortable, welcome and safe at UNH,' one user wrote in the comments section.

'It is literally up to you, the students, to make sure UNH is more welcoming. It doesn't matter how you feel about this song or these girls singing it if you're white, it matters how POC view UNH based off the examples set by its students.'

Another user backed up the girls: 'So your telling me you have never sang along to a song in the car??? Is this really where we are heading? A gust of wind, and all of a sudden its a race issue! It is honestly pathetic that you are trying to make something out of this, stop reaching and focus on yourselves!'

While another added: 'A pretty important part of this argument seems to be getting lost here: There is a large difference between 'saying' the word and 'quoting' the word. 

'When a non-black reads 'Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn' we have been taught, and I believe rightly so, not to skip over any of the offensive epithets because they are the words of the author and not your own,' the comment read.

'If anyone is to blame here it should be the artists of these songs, helping desensitize the term on a national scale as America's most popular genre of music.'

The university held a forum this week to address the controversial matter, according to a local NH1 report.

Erika Mantz, UNH Director of Media Relations, told NH1 the girls have not yet been reprimanded, as the incident is being further reviewed.

'We believe strongly in the right to free speech as recognized by the First Amendment, and we also believe in the right of every member of our community to feel safe and respected,' Mantz said.

'We continue to work to improve our campus culture through education, awareness and action.' 

LYRICS THAT STARTED THE FURY - 'Gold Digger' By Kanye West (Feat. Jamie Foxx)

'She take my money when I'm in need

Yea she's a trifling friend indeed

Oh she's a gold digger way over town

That digs on me

Now I ain't saying she a gold digger

But she ain't messing with no broke n*****

Now I ain't saying she a gold digger

But she ain't messing wit no broke n*****

Get down girl, go 'head get down

Get down girl, go 'head get down

Get down girl, go 'head get down

Get down girl, go 'head

Cutie the bomb

Met her at a beauty salon

With a baby Louis Vuitton

Under her underarm

She said I can tell you ROC

I can tell by ya charm

Far as girls you got a flock

I can tell by ya charm and ya arm

But I'm looking for the one

Have you seen her

My psychic told me she have a ass like Serena

Trina, Jennifer Lopez, four kids

An I gotta take all they bad ass to show-biz

OK get ya kids but then they got their friends

I pulled up in the Benz, they all got up In

We all went to Den and then I had to pay

If you f****** with this girl then you betta be payed

You know why

It take too much to touch her

From what I heard she got a baby by Busta

My best friend say she use to f*** wit Usher

I don't care what none of y'all say I still love her

Now I ain't saying she a gold digger

But she ain't messing with no broke n*****

Now I ain't saying she a gold digger

But she ain't messing wit no broke n*****

Get down girl, go 'head get down

Get down girl, go 'head get down

Get down girl, go 'head get down

Get down girl, go 'head

Eighteen years, eighteen years

She got one of yo kids got you for 18 years

I know somebody paying child support for one of his kids

His baby momma's car and crib is bigger than his

You will see him on TV, Any Given Sunday

Win the Superbowl and drive off in a Hyundai

She was spose to buy ya shorty TYCO with ya money

She went to the doctor got lypo with ya money

She walking around looking like Micheal with ya money

Should of got that insured got GEICO for ya money

If you ain't no punk holla We Want Prenup

We want prenup!, yeah

It's something that you need to have

'Cause when she leave yo ass she gone leave with half

Eighteen years, eighteen years

And on her eighteenth birthday he found out it wasn't his

Now I ain't saying she a gold digger

But she ain't messing with no broke n*****

Now I ain't saying she a gold digger

But she ain't messing wit no broke n*****

Get down girl, go 'head get down

Get down girl, go 'head get down

Get down girl, go 'head get down

Get down girl, go 'head

Now I ain't saying you a gold digger you got needs

You don't want ya dude to smoke but he can't buy weed

You got out to eat and he can't pay y'all can't leave

There's dishes in the back, he gotta roll up his sleeves

But why y'all washing watch him

He gone make it into a Benz out of that Datson

He got that ambition baby look in his eyes

This week he mopping floors next week it's the fries

So, stick by his side

I know his dude's balling but yea that's nice

And they gone keep calling and trying

But you stay right girl

But when you get on he leave yo ass for a white girl

Get down girl, go 'head get down

Get down girl, go 'head get down

Get down girl, go 'head get down

Get down girl, go 'head'

So Douglas let's boycott Kanye's song and all the other rappers who use the word.  Would the video had been okay if it was a ton of black girls singing instead?  And I do agree with and stand by the song's lyrics: I ain't messing with no broke n*****!!

Leave the girls alone, they are just having fun, the music is not their making!
Comment by Pampy Moore on September 23, 2017 at 5:43pm

Just listen to the music "we" listen to. Until we turn our face away from them and those that sing, produce and play them...leave the girls be - whether racists or not.

Comment by vaughn mitchell on September 22, 2017 at 11:19pm
Blame Kanye, we look stupid calling them racist, they singing a song, Rappers, like put out using the N, word.
Comment by BLACKSONA on September 22, 2017 at 5:26pm
Wait? We mad cause they singing a popular rap song that has the word n***** in it? Boy I tell ya’.. niggers will look for anything to be upset about! Lol... this new generation. Smh
Comment by Douglas Prescott on September 22, 2017 at 4:12pm

Black folks need to stop using that word then they can tell others or condemn others.  It is derogatory no matter who use it. When I hear anyone of any race or ethnicity use that word it offends me. It is time for the black community to ban and boycott anyone that use the word.

Comment by Joseph A on September 22, 2017 at 3:33pm
How about we as a consumer blame ourself for buying/listening it!
Comment by Brenda D Mitchell on September 22, 2017 at 3:21pm

Why call out Kanye West...rappers has been saying the N word long before Kanye came out...why not blame the black community as a whole...we keep saying it is a term of endearment when used by us...but wants to fry others that use the word....We either want the word erase completely or just leave this issue alone...we can't have it both ways!!!!

Comment by I love music on September 22, 2017 at 1:16pm
I blame the black artists they know what the word means if the white people buy there records and it's thrown around so loosely oh well
Comment by J5 on September 21, 2017 at 8:22pm

First of all anyone who uses the N word no matter what race, color, etc is IGNORANT, STUPID and UNEDUCATED. We need to learn how educate ourselves and understand that meaning of words, the significance of the words and why we need to just keep certain words alone.

I don't use it and I don't condone any DUMBASS who does use it. So in my opinion the young women should be in trouble, but not for the reasons that they are saying.
