When after realizing that something you love is born of something you hate does this fact this truth actually change thinking about life, culture and even history? Words are powerful and “Nigger” is worthy of linguistic abolition. This psycho-emotional ghost haunts from history but as hurtful as the term may be reformation restores this ghoul to grace.

True, the word is born of White Supremacy and the dominions of cruelty and control; these perversions principles of economic enslavement during a time in American darkness.

These and other facets attached to nigger exemplify reasons for its disintegration its termination; but, are we missing something of this word and viewing it differently could such ugliness manifest beauty? If so then would we deny the benefits? I think not.

Truth is difficult and sometimes witnesses outcry, outrage and even violence. Lately, the Nation’s President has come under fire for his use of nigger. Instructively, the term avails education and information, recreational use of the word is vulgar and destructive.  During the radio interview, President Obama’s use was clearly instructive.

I encourage that rethinking them words offer wonderment. Transformation of the term nigger witnesses a wonderful change and, it amazes me and I wonder why the experts have never expounded their points of view; perhaps, I overlooked the documentation, the articles.

Reformatting the term, surprisingly, nigger provides a terminological and nutritious sustenance. A word once rooted in hatred ugliness and horror now rises to spread its beauty its goodness. Truly, we seek purchase bring home and store this element on our kitchen shelves, it is a dietary staple and contains wonderful medicinal properties; and yes, of course, we relish and consume it. The anagram of “Nigger” deliciously evolves to something most of us welcome and use in cooking and flavoring of foods. The word transforms and translates to “Ginger.”

Grammatically, and respectively, antagonyms and oxymorons are terms that either inherently act in opposition or do so whenever coupled in sentences or phrases. Nigger and Ginger may be such terms; each word hosting its direct opposite; the one negative the other positive, the words if used together and depending on intentions reflecting different meanings.

For some simply hearing the term nigger may evince emotional spins, anger, outbursts. On the other hand, ginger bearing nutritional and medicinal properties that calm, restore, quell.

As much as I view nigger to be egregiously hurtful and abhorrent, regarding its transformation and translation something negative becomes not only positive but medicinally and nutritiously worth loving.

Sometimes the awfully ugly is awfully beautiful. 😉
