Feels good to finally be nigga 

This is the Snapchat of Paige Shoemaker, student at Kansas State University.

It appears Miss Shoemaker and her friend thought it’d be funny to put on a face mask and take selfies. 

The caption clearly states, “Feels good to finally be a nigga.”


I’m not sure why some white people think they can just post anything with consequences and repercussions. These occurrences are happening more and more but it seems like some people just don’t care or they are just showing their true colors. 

And it’s not all white people. The ones who I’ve allowed to be my Facebook friend don’t tolerate any of this nonsense. 

But for the ones that think it’s okay to “finally be a nigga” – this is for you:

You cannot be openly racist anymore. Save it for Thanksgiving dinner. 

You cannot say or type nigga. It’s just not for you to do. Don’t ask why. Just don’t do it. 

Black face or any color of ‘face’ is inappropriate. Just don’t do it. 

This is 2016, not 1960, we are not our grandparents, we don’t turn the other cheek. You’ll be out of a job before you and your attorney can issue a statement. 

Where were you when all of these unarmed Black men were being murdered (by the police)? Tamir Rice. Trayvon Martin Oscar Grant. Philando Castile. Alton Sterling. Just to name a few. 

Still wanna be a “nigga”? Didn’t think so… 

Update: Paige has since been kicked out of Kansas State University. She said that word doesn’t offend anyone in her friend group.
