A Dutch magazine is catching heat for publishing an article calling Rihanna a "nigga bitch" -- words the troubled singer has used to refer to herself in the past.

The Parlourmagazine.com article also stated that Rihanna was from Jamaica -- an insult of the highest order to Barbadians who think they're above Jamaicans.

Rihanna's fans inundated the magazine's office with emails, phone calls and online messages expressing their outrage. Rihanna, who was alerted to the magazine's content by her Twitter followers, reacted with a series of angry tweets on her Twitter.com page.

"I hope u can read english, because your magazine is a poor representation of the evolution of human rights! I find you disrespectful and rather desperate!! You ran out of legit, civilized information to print!" she wrote on Twitter.

"There are 1000's of Dutch girls who would love to be recognized for their contributions to your country, you could have given them an article. Instead, u paid to print one degrading an entire race! That's your contribution to this world! To encourage segregation, to mislead the future leaders to act in the past! You put two words together, with the intent of abasement, that made no sense ... 'N---a Bitch'?!....Well with all respect, on behalf of my race, here are my two words for you ... F--- YOU!!!" Source

The magazine's embarrassed editor took to Facebook to apologize profusely to the singer and her fans. Editor-in-chief, Eva Hoeke, wrote: "First: thanks for all your responses. We are of course very fed up over this and especially very shocked. However I'm glad that we're engaging in a dialogue on this page — not everybody does that. Thanks for this. Other than that I can be brief about this: this should have never happened. Period."

Hoeke also implied that the racist insults toward Rihanna were meant as a joke, especially since Rihanna, and blacks in general, use the most degrading terms when referring to ourselves.

"While the author meant no harm — the title of the article was intended as a joke — it was a bad joke, to say the least," Hoeke wrote in a statement.

"And that slipped through my, the editor-in-chief's, fingers. Stupid, painful and sucks for all concerned. The author has been addressed on it, and now I can only ensure that these terms will no longer end up in the magazine," the statement continued.

"Furthermore I hope that you all believe there was absolutely no racist motive behind the choice of words. It was stupid, it was naive to think that this was an acceptable form of slang — you hear it all the time on tv and radio, then your idea of what is normal apparently shifts — but it was especially misguided: there was no malice behind it. We make our magazine with love, energy and enthusiasm, and it can sometimes happen that someone is out of line. And then you can only do one thing: apologize. And hope that others wish to accept it. From the bottom of my heart I say it again: we never intended to offend anyone. And I mean that." Source

    If I was from another country I would also think that blacks like to be called bitches and niggas.

    Hell listen to a rap song and count how many times you hear them refer to themselves and others as a "nigga".

    How many chicks call themselves "bad b*tches" "five star b*tches" etc? Trina has dubbed herself the "baddest b*tch". How many time do we say "that's a bad b*tch right there"?

    This muthafuggin bytch azz magazine needs to be put the fukk out of business. Regardless to what they say she calls herself why would u publish that bullchit for others to read.

  • charleybrown

    We as black people have got to do better. We continue to call each other the N word in our music, movies and in our conversations. Then other races see and hear this and think it's acceptable. Then we get all flared up when they use it after being conditioned to it by listening to the things we produce. I am by no means saying what the magazine did is right. But I think we need to look at the bigger picture.

    @Naija :yes: Em said it. Made a whole song about a black chick he supposedly dated that dumped him. He wasn't as creative with metaphors when he went in on her either. Straight to nigga and bytch. Ol boy from the Source mag released it to try to discredit Em, but no one cared really. He also pulled the reverse racism card right before he did his recent comeback (Recovery + Relapse) when he did a freestyle dissing Jay-Z and Kanye, then retracted it and said he was high.

    Evelyn and Laura Govan are constantly saying "nigga" on twitter and no one says anything. I remember on a episode of basketball wives when Evelyn kept calling Ocho a nigga and everyone thought that chit was cute. Kept saying on twitter how Evelyn snapped on him. Evelyn around here making a profit off of selling shirts about her having an affair with another woman's husband. Telling that woman that she was a "non factor". Until everyone is clowned in regards to using words I will not be putting the "we need to stop using that word for just blacks".

They've got money and attorneys on speed dial. The rest of us have to deal with the white co-workers and people on the streets calling us that word with no real repercussions---except our fists.

    How many chicks call themselves “bad b*tches” “five star b*tches” etc? Trina has dubbed herself the “baddest b*tch”. How many time do we say “that’s a bad b*tch right there”?

    If it's degrading then it shouldn't be used period no matter the skin color of the person using the term. That's what they believe.

    That's like saying that a fat person can call another person fat but if a skinny person calls them fat it's a problem.

    Most folks get offended because they think its their natural right and they dont know any other way. I have a story behind why those words offend me. long story short, because my mother got a teaching job, I was pulled out of a diverse and loving elementary school and put into an all white racist one in a diff state. I literally went to school with children of the KKK who have NEVER even spoken to a person of "color". and mind you this was just in the early 90's. So being called a nig.ger affects me in a different way than most.

    I even had a lil boy try to lick me and asked me if i tasted like chocolate, I was only 10!

    Oh! Now we have amnesia.....

    Rappers have been selling blacks as n*ggers all around the world. Not only that, but black women are "hoes" all around the world.

    Rhianna's boss (a popular rapper himself) has a song called N*ggers in Paris, and he has told Oprah that he see's nothing wrong with his white (and other) audience members shouting back that word at him during his concerts.

    This reminds me of black African kings selling their own people into slavery. They didn't think anything of it, and never, ever, thought it would ultimately effect them.

    An undignified black person is the person who accepts being called n*gger and resorts to “cooning” (shucking and jiving) whenever his or her place in humanity is threatened with elevation.

    Okay but who determines who’s shucking and Jiving… Everybody has an opinion. Is it a group of older black people or just Al Sharpton… Who?

    What I said was self-explanatory.
    ________________________________________________

    No it wasnt actually it was opinion based... Who to say what or who is undignified and who's to say what shucking and Jiving is? See my problem with this is alot of people call something coonish or shucking and Jiving as you say. Where alor of others will not... SO whos to say what really is... Im just asking. But that was far from self expanatory.

    The only thing Blk ppl need to get better at is loving one another, supporting one another, and galvanizing around the community. I don't agree with everything Minister Farrakhan says but he is right on the mark about us as a community, but we don't want to hear him. We rather listen to White folks logic of not using the n-word though :rolleyes:

    An explanation is something WHICH IS opinion based..........

    Your real problem is that you don't know what these historical terms mean, and although you are on the Internet, you won't even look it up.

    Houria Bouteldja, a French political activist with Algerian roots, has been dragged into court and put up on charges for saying something mean about white French people.

    Bouteldja, ... called native white French "souchiens".... The word derives from "souche," or stock, as native white French are commonly called, but could sound like a hyphenated word meaning "lower than a dog."

    For this grievous insult, she faces up to six months in prison. ..."

    Ahh looka there. These white people aint having that chit. :coffee: Dont call us something we call ourselves! We'll put your ass in jail.

    My memere' has always since being married to my papa called him "Mr. Wonderful" when I was probably ten or so, she told me that you call a man what you want him to be. They were married 59 years until death did them part. I call my son's positive names, because I want them to grow up to be someone's Mr. Wonderful. Just my rant and rave is all, carry on.

    Well, you came from very dignified and wonderful people. I like how you are raising your son. Hopefully he will carry this on. I hope you have told him this story yourself so that he will remember.

    No my problem is people that constantly use history or what have you to
    express their dislike for something they either know nothing about or are biased towards... but hey Ill let you tell it.

    See to me (and this is my opinion) This is a bunch of BS
    Most of us use these words and find it perfectly alright when doing so but as soon as someone non black uses the same exact term we want to get all hot under the collar. You can use history to make it seem okay but I can use the exact same history to make it not. The Nword never bothered me that damn much... Its too much other stuff to be mad over... And this isnt one of them.

    And all jokes aside us calling ourselves the N-word is not going to change people's perceptions about us. White folks have done a fantastic job of debasing us for centuries, I am not condoning some of these rappers' behavior, but lets be real White folks have been putting in work making all members of the African Diaspora look bad especially Black Americans.

    @ Mrs, my boys have heard the story from their gran memere' and I try to raise them not to use those words, now when they're around their lil friends ain't no telling what's been said, but I can't control that, but you and I are > <

    The Parlourmagazine.com article also stated that Rihanna was from Jamaica — an insult of the highest order to Barbadians who think they’re above Jamaicans.

    Actually...that's an insult to us Jamaicans... :lol: Half the time people think Barbadoes is the Bahamas...GTFOH :rollseyes:

  • Drag_Anne_fly

    I don't know but I kinda get the feeling that most African Americans are cool with these words. In Namibia and South Africa, you will not go around calling people kaffir, that's a sure way of getting an extra lip. Hell, you won't even hear that word in a rap song. I don't know, maybe for us, aparteid was just yesterday, it was only in 1990 when Mandela got out of prison and '94 were allowed to vote. There are still people getting shot and killed by white farmers under the excuse that they thought it was a baboon. Even though the "whites only" signs have been remove, they're still there. Negro and Kaffir/heffer sting like a mutherfcker to me. I tolerate them on blogs and rap songs.
    Oh and white folks will never stop saying those words, whether we stop or don't TRUST. This dude on Twitter said "I'm so sick of being white, it's like playing a video game on easy" LOL i thought that was funny.

    Why would you assume that Bajans think they are better than everybody else.......I'm sure every country will think they are the better country, but nobody is superior to anybody (unless you the almighty). Just saying

  • Niecye

    IT'S NEVER OK TO CALL ANYONE BY THE N WORD OR THE B WORD. we lower our standards when we call ourself these names and expect better from people when they do it....I was always told lead by example. The magazine was just wrong for printing something of this maganatude and think it was a "joke". Years later and we are still held to things of the past. we need to do better people. Respect ourself.
