Storyboard Text

  • The beginning of the first half of the story Naylor talks about the first time she was introduced to the word nigger in a negative way. In the text it says, "I didn't know what a nigger was, but I knew whatever it meant, it was something he shouldn't have called me." 
  • The second part of the first half Naylor begins to talk about how the word was used as endearment in her house and community. In the text it says, "' my nigger'-- it became a term of endearment for her husband or boyfriend."
  • Later in the text Naylor begins to talk about how “nigger” can also be used in  negative way. In the text it says, “Parents who neglected their children,  a drunken couple who fought in public ... were all trifling niggers”
  • Lastly, Naylor describes how the black community changed the word nigger from something negative to something positive. In the text it says, "the people in my grandmother's living room took a word that whites used to signify worthlessness and degradation [and transformed it to a word that signifies endearment]."
  • Naylor's purpose was to show that the way you say a word or who says the word can change the whole meaning of the word
  • HaHa you niggers
  • That's my nigga (:
  • In my opinion white people aren't allowed to use the word nigga because of the historical backqround
