This quote was originally by Yoko Ono, and was made more popular by a song by John Lenon her husband. Mr. Lennon justified his and his wife's use of the term "nigger" by reference the following to John Dellums quote:
"If you define "niggers" as someone whose lifestyle is defined by others, whose opportunities are defined by others, whose role in society are defined by others, then Good News! You don't have to be black to be a "nigger" in this society. Most of the people in America are "niggers"."
Yoko Ono's quote was in 1969, John Lennon's justification was made in 1972. Both were made in America. Quick question; Who in American between 1969 and 1972 had their lifestyle most "defined by others"? I'll give you it a hint, it wasn't women. If you want another hint they wore a lot of green, learned to duck fast and got called murderers by Mr. Lennon's friends (arguably correctly).
Women are the whingers of the world more like.
