Mahelia de Randamie from facebook posted this article from TheYBF.com. This is totally unacceptable.
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 Kroes, 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.
