Hoeke claimed this piece was supposed to be a joke but only said this after Rihanna got wind of it and took to Twitter to air her thoughts about the piece:“N—A B—H. She has street cred, she has a ghetto ass and she has a golden throat. Rihanna, the good girl gone bad, is the ultimate n—a b—h and displays that gladly, and for her that means: what’s on can come off. If that means she’ll be on stage half naked, then so be it. But Dutch winters aren’t like Jamaican ones, so pick a clothing style in which your daughter can resist minus ten. No to the big sunglasses and the pornheels, and yes to the tiger print, pink shizzle and everything that glitters. Now let’s hope she won’t beat anybody up at daycare.”
I applaud Rihanna for her eloquent response. Why does a black woman have to be a niggabitch? I don't see anything funny about this, sure it was translated but still nothing stands out as being the slightest bit comical. According to Hoeke, the word niggabitch refers to a style of dress in America. Really!? Where exactly? Things must be different in the Netherlands.“@evajackie I hope u can read English, because your magazine is a poor representation of the evolution of human rights! I find you disrespectful, and rather desperate!! You ran out of legit, civilized information to print! There are 1000′s of Dutch girls who would love to be recognized for their contributions to your country, you could have given them an article. Instead, u paid to print one degrading an entire race! That’s your contribution to this world! To encourage segregation, to mislead the future leaders to act in the past!“You put two words together, with the intent of abasement, that made no sense…”N—A B—H”?!….Well with all respect, on behalf of my race, here are my two words for you…F–K YOU!!!”
This incident just goes to show how attempts to appropriate someone elses culture without thoroughly understanding or knowing anything about it always goes wrong. The offenders only refuge is to cling to worn out stereotypes. In this case, black women as ghetto, highly sexed, babies mamas. The words, nigga and bitch are derogatory words and I don't use them. Black women are more than niggas and bitches but not everyone understands that not even people in the Netherlands.
