    This obsession they have with other madows and constantly needing to put them down is different from the ways they look at other cultures. I was genuinely shocked at the level of abuse directed at jareer weyn when I joined this forum.

    It’s similar to how some users believe it’s a religious obligation to have gheera towards random Somali women on the internet. You are supposed to have this for your female relatives. I don’t know any male Somali who gets inflamed about someone like Maya Jama.

    I’m having the same arguments over and over again. Progress can never be made because you can’t reason with a lot of people on this forum.

    A lot of people on this forum are trolls/insane I wouldn't listen to their opinion on anything. Just like in politics the loud minority may come across as large in numbers but when it comes down to vote you see they are non existed. Most people on the internet have their opinions they wouldn't dare change cause it would hurt their pride so you would be wasting your time. All my somali friends IRL are normal and aren't racist that alone keeps me happy and sane XD

    Jarrer = black
    so it's bad because black people don't like to be reminded that their black

    Cadaan= white
    So it's ok because white people are not insecure and are proud of what they are

    :sass2:blacks hate themselves nothing new

    Yeah when the intention is to substitute jareer for the n-word it's toxic and just an attempt to be slick with the racism. So there is really no way to objectively use this word in the West.

    But then again the term jareer doesn't make any sense on the surface, since Somalis have a variation of hair-types and are not exactly jileec like Indians but more on a spectrum (not too curly and not too straight).
    I think what our ancestors tried to convey is a way to describe foreign ethnicities on the basis of their appearance. What us diasporas usually do is demean people we could otherwise describe perfectly fine with their ethnicity, as a way to get back at them.

    Honestly I wouldn't take a break over such debates, they are to be expected, and maybe you can change somebody's mind, you never know.

    the fact that you think jareer (which you cannot spell) means black tells me you are a hoyoo matala who doesn’t know what he is talking about.

    @Crow this guy is back after he promised he would leave. :gaasdrink:

    they could do what they do with the n-word and take the j word back no? End of the day they have no problem call each other the n word a word used by the people who enslaved them. So its a bit rich crying over jareer

    @Jaydaan you strike me as someone whose never met anyone who has countered his views before. Some of the questions you ask are bizarre.

    James Baldwin said the reason why black people use the N word is because even if they stopped using it, they know it wouldn’t stop Cadaan people from using it in their living rooms. Black people have appropriated this word to remove the sting out of it.

    They should not have to appropriate words from other black communities who suffer the same level or even worse stigma. Now let me ask you this, with so many black Muslims like Gambians, or even someone like Mohammad Ali, how do you justify using these terms that they find so offensive. It must be a strange cognitive dissonance to go through being a Black Muslim but also being a bigot against other black.

    Because jarer means kinky and the majority of black people have that besides what's wrong with having Jarrer hair

    :mjdontkno:It's not our fault they hate themselves we just use the word to describe them

    It’s not about what you say, it’s about how you say it. I agree that the word jareer initially is a descriptive word of people with kinky hair and wide noses. However a lot of you guys use it in a negative way that is really uncalled for. :manny:

    lol I noticed you always jump into arguments that I’m having with other people. You seem really obsessed with me, do we know each other in the real world?
