I read JUST the title "'NIGAZ' Name Sparks Racism Debate" and my first thought is hmmm I bet they're a gas company in nigeria or niger. Only stupid people who don't know geography would jump to conclusions like that.

No flames, CJ-boy, it's true. The educated are hailed as oreos and cast out of the black society in alot of cases. They just don't get the publicity out there they need. Black culture should not be gangs, but that's what it is.

How is it offensive? People say it in rap songs and day to day speech all the time. And don't give me the whole, "It's okay for one black person to say it to another because they're black" excuse. It's a huge double standard in which ignorance trumps common sense and, in my opinion, a closer look needs to be taken.

If people are TRULY offended by "Nigaz", maybe they should think twice before they publicly write songs with the same word that is SO offensive in them and use it as commonly as they do in conversation. Race card, much?

I'm Native American, but I've not once in my life caused a stir over someone saying rude things about it (or people having absolutely no idea what Native Americans have gone through, for that matter). In my opinion, we deserve a drating month, too, but I'm not wigging out over it. Ignorance trumps common sense.

"Nigaz", "nigg rs" and "educated dark-colored individuals" are very different.
nigg r
educated dark-colored individuals are rather hard to find because they aren't as noisy as nigg rs and thus not as reknown.
Go ahead flame me.

I love how one dude said: "you are the racist one to call someone 'racist'" Its just the colour of the skin, get over it.

"sparks racism debate"

A couple of people make a group on facebook and twitter because they have nothing better to do than look for things which could be considered racist, and it's called a racism debate? Wow, by the sounds of it, it's really getting out of hand, we may even have rioting soon!

I think its a bit funny that everybody is making such a big deal out of it when somebody for the NNPC even spoke up and said they couldn't care less about the mispronunciation sounding that way as long as they were getting paid.

People. It's NIGAZ pronounced "nye-gaz" read it on the company site. If you seriously believe that the company name is meant to be racist, you need to get a job and get a life.

This is about as asinine as I have seen. First thing, the word "Niggaz" is a slang English word in the western civilization. Second is the two companies were not primarily English speaking countries. I'm sure everyone saw the Asian food diner named fudge Mi. Why don't we get offended by that sign? Durrrr...
