Newly signed to Duck Down Records, East Harlem spitter Bodega Bamz stopped by DASH Radio to chat about being single, groupies, his love for his native borough and his views on Latinos using the word “n*gga.”

“Spanish and Blacks, we the same,” he explained. “Where I come from, we’re the same. So to me, that word is not derogatory when a Latino says it.”

Of course, what Bamz meant when he said “Spanish” was “Latinos,” perhaps “Hispanic.” But not persons from Spain.

But what say you? People of all shades and ethnicities agree the ‘n’ word should be put to rest, Black people included. While some urge our generation to do away with the historically racist term, many remain it is an expression of endearment when distinguished from “n*gger.”

Feel free to discuss in the comments.
