Monday, December 16, TMZ posted a video from an interview with infamous HIP HOP Producer SUGE KNIGHT said that he prefers not to be referred to as AFRICAN AMERICAN, because he is not from the continent of AFRICA, and then proceeded to give his philosophy on usage of the term, "NI**A"!!!
As a result, TMZ decided to post a poll asking readers to vote on whether they prefer to be referred to as an AFRICAN AMERICAN, or; a NI**A.
HUFF POST: MEDIA Senior Editor KIA MAKARECHI decided to tweet the TMZ poll, and reactions were as would be expected.
BUTT (The Biggest BUT); how could TMZ even post something so ignorant?!?!?
