WOW! Popular Dutch Magazine Calls Black Girls Like Rihanna A "N*IGGAB*TCH"!

Sure, different countries have different meanings for the same words.  But this one's pretty universal.  A popular Dutch magazine has blatantly referred to black women such as Rihanna as a "N*GGAB*TCH."  And the black community in the netherlands--mainly the younger generation--is on an uproar. 

 

Oh, and it's not the first time.  Deets inside...

 

Eva Hoeke, editor of Jackie Magazine which boasts thousands of readers in its circulation and has been around for at least 3 years, decided to use the term "N*ggab*tch" as an article title in the most recent issue in relation to Rihanna and other black women.  And had the audacity to use it as though it was a term of endearment. 

Eva replied to the hellraising of the black community in the Netherlands on Twitter saying that it wasn't her intention to hurt anyone and that people are being too sensitive.

We asked our Dutch reader who sent the article over to translate what it says exactly in the image above.  And here's what we got:

They’ve got street cred, they’ve got a ghetto ass, and they can sing well. Rihanna, the good girl gone bad, is the ultimate niggabitch and loves to carry herself as such which in her case means; dressing half-naked. Unfortunately, Dutch winters are nothing like Jamaican winters (who said Rihanna is from Jamaica?) so choose a style that will allow you to withstand the harsh weather conditions. No oversized sunglasses and porn heels but leopard print, pink ‘’shizzle’’ and everything else that shines.

To be fair, we also asked the reader if this was a term normally used and if it possibly means something else to them (and it would still be wrong nonetheless).  Her response:

The term means exactly what it means in English. The problem with Dutch people is that often they know exactly what they are saying but as soon as someone confronts them about it we are being to sensitive and wasnt meant to be offensive. This comes from the same people who celebrate Sinterklaas annually in December. A party that includes characters in blackface called Zwarte Piet. The editor in chief @evajackie responded this morning saying it was a joke and that people are being too sensitive but that she apologizes nevertheless. Later she tweeted that in next month's issue she will issue an official apology. This is not a ''fashionsta'' term, we say bitch here as well and it means exactly the same as in English, as well as ''nigga.'' No different meaning whatsoever.

I am happy that the younger Dutch generation is finally speaking up against the blatant racism in this country. White people here really think they can do and say anything and have this attitude of ''if you don't like it, go back to your own country.''

This is the type of racism we as black people in the Netherlands have to deal with on a constant basis because the Whites in this country feel that you should leave their country if you don't like what they say or do. I hope you can post this on your blog just to let this woman know that it isn't us that are being sensitive but that she crossed the line.

Kroes posted the following apology on her Facebook page today saying this was meant as a joke (REALLY?!):

Dear readers,

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. 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. 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. 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.

Regards,

Eva Hoeke

Thoughts?

BONUS: Rihanna actually had her own in-person racist encounter this weekend with a hotel guest in Portugal.  She tweeted:

'I just met the most racist c**t EVER!!! This man said the craziest s**t about black women - called us dogs, sl**s, we don't look like s**t, we don't belong in the same hotels.

'Needless to say, the #N**** in me came out! Bajan accent and all! Lol! Turns out the hotel manager's black.

'Oh and he had the NERVE to diss black people in his tighty whitey's!!!! SMH...and tbh a lil' black wouldn't hurt him.'

Goodness!

The magazine article was

The magazine article was totally unacceptable. Racism is racism-anywhere and everywhere. Racism is about a systemically oppressing people with less power based on race. This happens on a global level. Although the US history of slavery is different from other-make no mistake other countries were impacted by and contributed to slavery; either in this country or their own. And it's 2012- we live in a global society. Even if by some miracle it wasn't offensive to Black people in the Netherlands-the fact that its offensive to Black people anywhere makes it unacceptable EVERY Where. This was not a mistake this was and is an example of ignorance and racism.

First of all, I don’t like

First of all, I don’t like the magazine Jacky and I think it was an error to place the article. I do have to say that this is a Dutch magazine and relates to the Dutch culture. This does not mean that they should not respect others, but in the Netherlands you are free to offend people. It is part of the freedom of speech. While the term might be strong in other areas of the world, in the Netherlands that is not the case for the majority. If any Dutch person would feel offended, it would be due to abroad cultural influences. There is no problem in saying the F*, S* or other swearing on TV. Dutch have no problems with nude on TV nor would a bare breast be shocking in a TV show. We can call people black without it being racist. There is a difference in skin color, that is a fact. Black does not automatically refer to 'bad' or racist in the Netherlands. It is not even different, white is white, black is black, yellow is yellow.. no other means. This does not mean that the Dutch don't respect the issues that foreign cultures have with the bias on 'black'. N* does not relate in the Netherlands to a painful history (even though the Dutch had a negative role in it) and the word is used between black people all the time. In Dutch standards it would be racist if a black person is allowed to use these words and white people can’t. Morgan Freeman ones said wisely that if white people stopped calling black people black, and the other way around, it would be a good start in stopping racism. In the US culture with the US history, that sounds right. In the Dutch culture there is no bias on black or dark people. We are all people and we are all different but equal. Ignoring and putting claims on the differences is racism, not the acceptance of being different. For the relation to Sinterklaas.. This is a cultural event from a long time ago. Both black and white people see no racism in this. Yes, it celebrates the birthday of a holy saint who gives presents instead of getting presents. He is accompanied by helpers that have a lot of respect. These helpers are black indeed. It does not refer to slavery in any way nor is there any negative association with them. Kids tend to be scared of the white saint and the black Piets comfort the children and give candy. Coca Cola liked the idea and took the controversial and Christian parts out and turned it in to your Santa Claus. Is Santa Clause making amok about small people since he has elfs working for him? No? That is similar to Sinterklaas with the black Piets. Each year there is a discussion on racism about this, but this is again mainly coming from foreign influences and people traying to claim a special position based on racism.

You make an excellent point.

You make an excellent point. There's no difference in what you call yourself and what others call you. People treat you the way you treat yourself. Rihanna chose to wear a necklace labeled "cunt" (http://tinyurl.com/83zenv7) and has displayed herself in appalling ways through her music. It's really no surprise that this happened, when you really think about it. The Dutch have a history of being vile and disgusting humans. It just seems that Rihanna's self-treatment aligned with this Dutch magazine's inhuman behavior. It's all science.

Wrong sweetie, the name is

Wrong sweetie, the name is not the only thing about this article that is upsetting. If you read throughly what this "editor" said then maybe you could grasp the ignorance to which we find highly offensive. She described her as "They’ve got street cred, they’ve got a ghetto ass, and they can sing well. Rihanna, the good girl gone bad, is the ultimate niggabitch and loves to carry herself as such which in her case means; dressing half-naked" basically calling Rihanna a whore. This is not the first time I have heard an ignorant Caucasian call a female with an island accent Jamaican. The editor clearly has never taken a look at a map to see that there are more islands than Jamaica in the carribbean. As for "we act a fool" my dear, WE are not YOU. Just because you see a few ignorant ghetto black people it does not speak for the whole especially me. I clearly see that you are apart of the problem, generalizing an entire society seems to be your cup of tea.

First of all every tribe of

First of all every tribe of people of the twelve tribes of Israel has tribal wars, everyone of every race is at war with one another, as for me, I uphold black supremacy in all I do, because we are the beginning, and the end. As far as in Africa, Africans have rap music too, in which they are using this word, after all, American blacks are direct descendents of Africans, they do everything we do, have some of the same mannerisms,dress the same,etc. So African blacks are in no way superior to American blacks in any way, except for the place they are born.

And btw, wherever you're gleaning that information about where people started and the role black people play in all of that is lying to you.

I am from New York and I have

I am from New York and I have a friend who lives in the Netherlands and I've visited her a couple of times. Last time I was there it was in December and it's true what Eva Kroes says, there's a holiday celebrated there on December 5th called 'Sinterklaas'. And white people in black face and afro wigs on hand out presents and candy. Everybody celebrates it and it's completely normal to them. My mouth just fell open when I saw that and I started to cry. That people celebrate racism and teach there kids about that holiday. Also they use the word 'nigger' a lot, not 'nigga' but 'nigger'. On national television, magazines, even in news papers. And it would surprise you how many black and people of other races live there, the country is very multicultural. Just google 'Sinterklaas' or 'Zwarte Piet' (which means Black Piet). It's really sad smh

What was the point this

What was the point this person was trying to make by writing this article. Like really, tell me what is their meaning of bitch nigga. I live in holland my mother is dutch/moroccan, my father is african. I'm a proud of my colored skin. This article pisses me off. The things they wrote, 'ghetto ass' , 'porno heels' Really though. And the title it's just very sad. But the politicians that are having the power in our country are also racist! Of course not all of them but a few who have a lot of influence are. I hope this will also be a wake up call for our younger generation. Because we shouldn't allow this BS!

Fact 1: the Dutch still use

Fact 1: the Dutch still use the colonial term "Indian" when they're referring to first-nations people. Fact 2: The Dutch still celebrate Sinterklaas. Once I was walking in Amsterdam and saw this Sinterklaas accompanied by these "black peters" walking downtown: they were frowned upon by an immigrant family, but apparently it's still ok to celebrate this racist national holiday.

Don't be mad at this magazine

Don't be mad at this magazine be mad at yourselves and your rappers If the American black community continues to use it amongst themselves don't blame others when they follow suit. I am South African and racists is this country used to call us K*ffirs, meaning slaves Now that we are in power, nobody can call us that. Its a criminal offence!!! We definitely don't call ourselves that because thats just stupid in my opinion I listened to Jayz interview wich Oprah and was very dissappointed at Jayz. He is a grown man and has a lot of influence on other rapppers and the young generation. If he took a stand and stopped using this derogatory term, more will follow suit and that would be in my opinion the biggest contribution he'd ever make to America and that would put his name in the record books for something meaningful. His argument was they use this term to take away its power. To disarm it in a way. I think the best way to disarm it and to be done with it completely would be to stop using it altogether. I have never been to America, i only interact with you on blogs and watch you on TV and have to admit it breaks my heart how most of you think its okay to refer to women as bitches and ho's and to throw the nigga word around like its cool. Americans need to learn to show more respect for one another and move on from the past. Many nations suffered from racism, segregation and discrimination, heck we only got our freedom in 1994 but we don't look down upon each other. We don't put down a person just because they have a dark skin or their hair is a certain way. We love our hair the way it is and we wear with it with pride. Beauty doesn't come only in a light skin tone. Its time you let the past go

Honestly, there's no

Honestly, there's no justification for using those forms of slangs....and whether or not a certain group of people uses them is beyond the point...It's blatantly wrong, there's no if, but or maybe about it. Everyone on this face of the earth knows by now that those terms are derogatory. The ones that want to act like asses and point fingers about who's using them from who isn't is need a slap back to reality. Wrong is just wrong!!!! I'm not the biggest fan of Rhianna, her music or any type os music that is derogatory (u will never see me in a club or on dance floor moving to those music), but if we do feel that the young lady is lower than the lowest, why would we want to put ourselves in the same category with her. (by refering to her in a term she refers to herself in). Let us take sometime to think about this. As you will find a Rhianna in every race on this earth, so stop acting like it's just a problem in the race.

The editor of the magazine

The editor of the magazine was waaay out of line. With that said, black people, we have to take responsibility for this. THIS is the image we present of ourselves to the world. Examples: Jay-Z and Kanye's Niggas is Paris. Every rapper is talking about nigga this and nigga that. Hip-hop is a global phenomenon now and if people think we're ok calling each other niggas, we can't be surprised if the world wants to calls us that. Look at Real Housewives, Basketball Wives, Love and Hip Hop, etc. Every other word out of their mouths is bitch this and bitch that. We HAVE to do BETTER black people!!! You TEACH people how to treat you! If we can't respect ourselves, we can't expect the world to respect us either.

You are right! All young

You are right! All young African American kids call themselves "nigga". Why do they expect not to be called Nigga when they call themselves that. And, if they are around other innocent young kids of other races, of course the kids will pick up the word and start calling them "my nigga" too. What I am saying is that, if that is what you prefer calling yourselves, that is what you should expect people to call you. And besides not all African American or people from Africa call themselves that. On the other hand, and I am being general here, if you meet a few people in a community acting stupid whether they are caucasian, latino or African, it does not represent the whole community. So people should just stop stereotyping and get an education. People that spend their time discriminating others have less education are not open minded. Even if they are rich and less educated, they will still think closed mindedly. And if you look closely, those kids that call themselves nigga are not educated.

Doing that breeds a lot of contempt for people who aren't like yourself... you're racist, dude. I know what you're thinking... "I'm black, i can't be racist!" As it turns out, white people aren't the only ones who can be racist nowadays.
