The editor-in-chief of Jackie magazine, which referred to troubled singer Rihanna as a "Niggabitch", has stepped down.

Eva Hoeke cited the relentless attacks from Rihanna's Stans on social media as the reason for her departure. She explained that she used the term "Niggabitch" to describe the ultra slutty personal style that was influenced by Rihanna herself. Hoeke points out that the term was imported from America where we in the black community routinely use "nigga" and "bitch" as terms of endearment.

But since when does a journalist (or blogger) let Stans influence what they write? The article obviously was not a personal attack on Rihanna. Oh, I forgot, Freedom of Speech is only upheld as a constitutional right here in America.

If Rihanna wants respect maybe she should start by respecting herself?

Eva writes:

Because of the enormous pressure from social media, I can promise improvement in terms of language used in future issues of Jackie.

Previously, I offered rectification. As I now come to the conclusion that rectification is not the right solution, I am departing.

"The term 'nigga bitch" has come over from America and we have only this to describe this particular style of clothes that we can try to interpret.

"After eight years, with my heart and soul, I have worked for Jackie. I realize that these errors - although no malicious intent - is a reason to leave."

    Chit, ain't no Stans running me away from my paper, especially when that bish calls herself a ni**a bish, and wears a chain that says _unt chile please!

  • flsun99

    Let met get this straight...So she created the word "NIGGABITCH" and called it a term of endearment because we call each other niggas and bitches....O-K. Wow. And she stated that there was no malicious intent either. B!tch please...and that wasn't a term of endearment, that was meant to be malicious!!

  • buddapecan

    I wish a niggabitch would try to make me quit my job! Racist or not I wouldn't have quit. They would have had to fire me. Serious question tho...why when people talk out of pocket (their unpopular opinion) does the public want their job? I could see if the comments came from an elected official...but someone who works in the private sector? I don't get it.

    We all know there are plenty of black folks that regularly use the n-word to address each other, and they’re not just hip-hop artists. And many of them will call each other n*ggas in public with non-white folks present. They don’t really give a sh!t. Now that doesn’t mean ALL black folks use the n-word, and some of us hate hearing other blacks use it.

    With that said, non-white folks should be aware of this fact (regardless of country), and they should refrain from using the word in any public setting or forum. Is it hypocritical or a double standard? Damn right it is, but that’s just the way things are, and unfortunately they’re not gonna change anytime soon.

    @Chgoprime: No I don't think it was ok but why should she have to quit her job? The Jewish community would never refer to themselves in a derogatory manner the way the Black community does. We call ourselves niggas but we don't expect anybody to say the same about us? I think she should have apologized that she made a mistake but not quit. As Blacks we expect other people to respect us but we don't have respect for ourselves. WE need to change and take better care of community before we expect others to view us differently and take us seriously.

    And this lady was trying to describe a style of clothing...did everyone forget that? She called Rihanna "Jamaican" AND told parents to dress their kindergartners like her but just "dont let them beat anybody up.."

    I guess she heard all that in a rap song. :lol:

    Let's be real about this. No other race or ethnicity has popularized a derogatory term about themselves more than African-Americans have with the word n*gga. Yeah, you can argue that racist white folks popularized the n-word way before black folks did. But no other people have embraced the word like black folks have done post civil rights movement, and you can thank hip-hop for that.

    Does anybody think Jay Z, Snoop, or any other rapper care about the millions of white folks that recite the lyrics to their songs that are soaked with n-word usage?

    ---------

    How do they know its disrespectful if we refer to ourselves by using the word, say it to each other and like someone else mentioned...some parts of our community are "taking it back" and embracing it? So the question is...is it disrespectful or not? If it is...end the use of it...period. NO ONE should use it. WE have the power to take away the use of the word. But we won't. I'm sure if we did, more non blacks would be less likely to use it so freely.

    I am so sick and tired of people always using us as targets. Yes, clearly Rhianna can clean up her act and she should before she loses all of her fan base. But when people start trying to include an entire race into a category of ignorance, fire runs through me. I work very hard and carry myself in a manner so that I am not profiled. Frankly, I am getting sick and tired of the blatantly disrespect that other races and cultures have for us. It is almost 2012, and we are no further than we were 50 years ago. :mad:

Also she was using that as a way to describe Riri's style she could have gone in so many other directions. I know you claim that free speech should have allowed that woman to print that but if someone had printed that in the states they wouldn't have had the chance to resign and you know it. That would have been a swift firing.

    GOOD point @OTB. No she did not write the article. BUT the editor in chief (magazines) aka executive editor (papers and other news media) IS ultimately responsible for everything that runs in your publication. In Amerikkka the process most times works like this...

    Journalist writes the piece. It gets sent to your assignment editor. News research gets ahold of it to check for accuracy if it contains alot of numbers/facts. Copy editor checks your azz for content. Then it gets sent to the printing press or whatever your medium is to disseminate the piece (internet etc)

    So alot of folks indeed looked at that before it got out. The editor in chief was not even ONE of the people!

    No...I'm not drunk...YET. LOL! I agree with you but if you read my previous posts I also said in order to gain the respect we seek we have to respect ourselves. I think other groups "try" us cause they know we are divided and hypocritical about the use of the word. WE are giving them the power to disrespect us. Instead of embracing the word among us but prohibiting other groups to use it towards us...why don't we take a stand? BAN it among ourselves and make other groups ban the use of it too. Will non blacks try to use it? Yes, but if we are united we could make them buckle like the gays and Jews. #blackpower

  • DeliciousOne

    Some Gay men refer to their other gay friends and F*gs and other derogatory words. However I am sure this editor or any other would never published an article referring to the likes of Elton John, Boy George or George Michael as such. The bitch would have been hung, drawn and quartered before she got her first apology out let alone having the nerve to try and blame her ignorance on gays.

    But here we have Black people trying to blame Rihanna for beng racially abused. Britney, Lady Gaga and Madonna's old ass all dress worst than Ri on stage but no one seems to have an issue. In fact those ladies are even praised for their daring fashion but when the black girl does it she is labelled as slut and whore by her own people. Since this "Editor" claims to have been describing a way of dress why didn't she also use that word to describe Britney and Gaga??
