Storyboard Text

  • Nigger
  • He called me a nigger
  • Do not use that word in here
  • Mommy, what does nigger mean?
  • I remember the first time I heard the word "nigger" .... And as I handed the papers to a little boy in back of me, I remarked that once again he had received a lower mark than I did. He snatched his test from me and spit out that word.
  • I'm telling you that nigger pulled in $6,000 overtime last year. 
  • I didn't know what a nigger was, but I knew that whatever it meant, it was something he shouldn't have called me. This was verified when I raised my hand, and in a loud voice repeated what he said and watched the teacher scold him for using a "bad" word. 
  • I was later to go home and ask the inevitable question that every black parent must face.
  • And so among the anecdotes of the triumphs and disappointments in the various workings of their lives, the word nigger was used in my presence...
  • The authors purpose was to inform readers that there is a deeper meaning behind the word "nigger" 
  • I believe the word "Nigger" should be a word that should not be said by anybody because that word has a history behind it that is not good. Black people are allowed to use the word "nigga" bc we took that word and added a different meaning nobody else can use that word.
