Seriously, is being a "wigger" wrong? Is the PHRASE "wigger" offensive? To whom and why? Let's dissect the two most noted "wiggers" ever to approach rapmusic.com and one other guy from S. W. Atlanta and see if it is in fact acceptable to be one, or is it merely caricature or what one is in the first place... One of the original two tried to define a "wigger" as a white person who's into hip hop. That makes me think of Shook. Shook went to Morehouse with me. He's half german, half anglo by blood, making him the whitest white person literally ever. He wore plaid shirts, jeans that fit, and timbs that were specifically for working in, not fashion. He had the beard of Bob Villa and drove a red ford F-50. He literally was the most out of place looking guy on the planet, but he was our friend and Vice President of the student government at the world's leading black institutes of higher learning (meaning: he had our respect.) All he listened to was hip hop. This was '96, so it was heavy No-Limit era. He also was into nas and Jay-Z and Busta because his roomate and best friend (to this day) was a kid from the south bronx named Spider. The three of us were hella close. Me and Spider were the best B-Boy tandem that school ever saw or probably ever seen. I was pre-law, he was pre-med, Shook was Comp Sci. Now, does that make Shook a "wigger"? Let's face it, he has more street cred than a lot of the "wiggers" on this site do. He was living in South West Atlanta when the block was hot. He's forgotten more about hip hop than most of us ever knew. He dated black women exclusively (but it was admittedly hard to find one willing to date a guy who was the spitting image of the host on New Yankee Workshop...) and actually went to a premier Black School (Morehouse) as did his older sister (somewhere in the Carolinas, where he's from originally). Not only that, but he had actually been to and through africa as a student. He knows more about black history legitimately (remember: Morehouse man) than probably anyone on this site (maybe even me...maybe). He at least knew enough never to say the N-Word at all ever. Then we have Rich and Brit Boi who are clearly posers. One's probably never known a black person in person (Brit), the other one keeps trying to cornrow his hair or get dreads or try to convince black girls his dick isn't small, it's just a block away... They can't rap, can't dance, never seem to have shown any ability in graph writing or d-jaying or producing or ANYTHING. They are completely USELESS to the hip hop culture or rap music in any form besides mindless consumers. So of these three white men, who's the wigger? Are ANY of them? Are ALL of them? And what does it take to be a "wigger"? I think sheep like rich and Brit are necessary because we wouldn't have platinum rappers without posers buying the albums and biting their rhymes nonstop. I don't think shook is necessary for anything in hip hop, but trust me when I say he is refreshing to say the least. During his four years, there was racism against him, though rare. There was never ANY racism from him or the other two white guys out of 3200 at morehouse AT ALL. So when is a white guy being a wigger, and when is a white guy's interest in hip hop or black culture genuine? Is that the dividing line? Trust: in my book, rich and brit and az are "wiggers". Ghet and Shook are not. Their a couple of german dudes who like black music, and that's where it stops. Neither feel the need to "front". They wear who they are on their sleves almost to a fault (ghet) and don't live in a fantasy world on the net to fulfill some sort of hip hop penis envy. That's MY call, what's y'alls? Sociologist, Philosophers, self-proclaimed hip hop experts -sound off.
