Have All “Real Niggas” Surpassed The Man?
In The Beginning, There Was…
How many times in the past decade have I heard the term, Real Niggas? For those unfamiliar with the distinguished title, definition number seven on Urban Dictionary defines it as:
a real nigga is someone who dont give a f*** n will shoot or kill anyone who pisses him off and dont care if he gets killed or goes 2 jail USAULLY A OG
There’s a reason I chose definition number seven so eloquently written by the author best known as D-Boi versus definition number one. D-Boi describes the term exactly how 80% of black men view real niggas. (Warning: All statistical figures shown by me are often guesstimates made in my mind and are subject to change at will).
For a bit of history, the term was initially popularized by Tupac. In an interview during the height of his career, Tupac was quoted saying:
“I’m not finna act white just cuz ya’ll want me to act white; just cuz all these other mother******* act white when they get they papers. I’m a act very black. I’m a buy a benz, cuz that’s what niggas do! I’m a smoke weed, cuz that’s what niggas do. I’m a pack a gat, cuz that’s what niggas do! I’m a get drunk cuz that’s what niggas do! I’m not finna change just cuz mother******* got money!”
That mentality has somehow infected popular society and spread rampantly, like H1N1. Blacks everywhere were finally proud to be “niggas”. In fact, they were now considered Real Niggas. The term became viral after Katt Williams used it in his stand up comedy. He often referred to himself and all “real men” as Real Niggas.
Now, when I find myself browsing the Internet or some ignorant child’s Twitter account, I find them boasting about saving society by being a member of Real Nigga Incorporation. Want some examples? Of course you do:
If you can’t get over your weak ass EX boyfriend, I don’t understand how you’ll ever find yourself a real nigga?!
#GOD BLESS ALL THE REAL NIGGAS. SO MANY OBSTACLES & STRESS FOR A REAL NIGGA….
Imma real nigga 1st get money 2nd
Imma be in all of my followers DM tonight being thirsty and I kan admit that bcuz I’m a #RealNigga!
Female perspective: When you’re taken, of course hoes gon try to f*** up your relationship. But you gotta be a real nigga, & put them hoes in they place.
Finally Getting To The Point
Brothas, is this how you want to represent yourself? From my perspective, Real Niggas talk a lot on Twitter, Facebook, and over the phone. They brag about their abilities in the bedroom and occasionally in relationships. They’re pigheaded and arrogant. They have to begin or end each sentence with their prestigious title for you to recognize them as real.
Only Pinocchio needed to claim that he was a real boy. Why? Because he was a puppet; cartoon; a fictional character! If you’re real, your actions will speak for themselves. I’m personally tired of anyone that has to tell me about their qualifications. Life isn’t a job interview. If you really want to be impressive, without slaughtering the English language, you could simply do something with your life.
Being “real” isn’t about getting money. It has nothing to do with the car you drive. You were real the second your mother had a confession to make, “I’m pregnant.” However, being a man is an entirely different concept that could take up an entire blog post; maybe a book. If you really want to impress someone, strive for the the ultimate goal of anyone with the X chromosome—be a man.
Am I the only one that believes this or are all you Real Niggas upset?
