Local Seattle Utility Company Sends The Word ‘Nigga’ As A Password To A Black Woman

When Jay-Z read the article, he exclaimed, “What’s the big deal? I use that word when I’m rapping ALL the time!” However, the recipient of this word from the utility company was not amused.

Erica Conway, who is a longtime volunteer of the Seattle chapter of the NAACP, said that she believes the slur was intentional. She also says that she complained to a customer service agent named Lydia at PSE’s Bothell call center, but that the representative did not take her seriously.

“I had said ‘Do you guys screen out certain words?’ and Lydia was, like, ‘Yes, we do.’ And I said, ‘Well you guys didn’t screen out this word’ And she said, ‘Why would we?’ and I said, “What do you mean why would we? This is an offensive word.’ And she stated to me, ‘No one uses that word anymore.’ And I was like, where are you living, what planet are you living on?”

The utility company’s spokesperson stated that the passwords are computer generated and that no employee has the ability to send passwords to customers who need passwords reset. But the question is, “Who is programming the computers to generate passwords of this type?” How would a computer just magically come up with the password “Nigga” and send it to a descendant of slaves? So, is the company suggesting that computers are racist? Actually, the computers are programmed by racists who think it funny to program their racist ass leanings into computer databases everywhere. This was absolutely deliberate because there is no reasonable explanation for a computer to just randomly select a password that is offensive to many of us and send it to whom that word has been used in a derogatory and demeaning manner.

This should be a wake-up call to Black people who use derivatives of the word “Nigger.” That word nor any derivative of that word should ever be defined as a term of endearment, nor should it be used in our daily dealings with one another. I have gone over this before. When have you heard the Chinese refer to each other as “Chinks?” When have you heard Mexicans refer to other Mexicans as “Wetbacks?” Black people are the only group of people who have taken the most vile and hideous word in history, call it a term of endearment and use it religiously. Slaves were called niggers and were stripped, chained, shackled, beaten, raped, molested and murdered by whites who gave them that vile designation and yet Black people have no problem with calling each other that fucked up word. Sometimes, I despair OF us!

Erica Conway was maligned by Puget Sound Energy with malice aforethought. They knew what they were doing and now the NAACP wants to sit down with representatives from that company to talk about the situation with them. What for? If Erica Conway’s civil rights have been violated, call a lawyer and let him/her take care of the matter. Nothing will be settled by confronting a racist with their racism. Has the shit stopped after all the marching and protesting? Hell no! And it won’t. The only thing that will put even a bit of a lid on that shit is to hurt the bottom line. Whites don’t give a shit for anything beyond money and power. That is the only way to stick it to them.

And lastly, I wonder why the passwords, ‘racist’, ‘bigot’, ‘redneck’, trailer park trash’, ‘poor white trash’ and ‘pasty-faced devil’ have never been sent to ‘whites’? White folks, come on up in here and explain to us why this has not happened. I know you know.

  1. Wake up, folks! I know people won’t because sleeping is just oh so comfortable!
    I have left and never looked back with any and all businesses that I even felt an inkling of racism or prejudice. Poor service at restaurants? Yep. Not calling my name for my order like you did the patrons before me and instead leaving my drink on the counter for me to discover it after too long a wait? Definite yep! Keep in mind my experiences have been “luxury” purchases (in this day + time). Nonetheless, let’s keep calling them out, but take the further action of spending our money elsewhere, no matter how inconvenient.

    1. Exactly Kelley! And that is why I stated that the only way to get to ‘whites’ is by way of the bottom line; depriving them of our hard-earned dollars. Why we have not figured this out on a massive scale by now, I don’t know because there are plenty of us who have been putting it out there but it is just not getting picked up. I am sure that you read my post about the Black woman getting kicked to the ground by some filthy ass, rag-head Arab who own those convenience stores in Black communities all across AmeriKKKa. And the Black folks in that neighborhood were out protesting and speaking of boycotting the place. The problem with that is, how long is that going to last? Not long enough to make a difference, would be my guess. More’s the damn pity.

      People who live in that community could give rides to those who have no vehicles and take them someplace to get what they need where they’ll not be disrespected and kicked like they are nothing by some raghead that’s got no business being here in the first damn place, much less who has any business owning a convenience store/gas station. Ain’t it just ‘convenient’ that those Arabs, from Saudi Arabia no doubt, can cozy on up to convenience stores all across America? It is because America is in bed with those beheading Saudis.

      If only Black people could remember what we did decades ago when we still had our own communities virtually to ourselves. We looked out for one another. We had rent parties for those who had lost their job. The entire neighborhood would have a cookout and we just all went from house to house because we all knew each other. But with this HUD mess and so-called ‘desegregation’, that spelled doom for Black cohesiveness and it was done by design, we are in a seriously bad place. Back in the day, we didn’t have Koreans and Chinese owned liquor stores and takeouts on every corner. But nowadays, that is all you see. That shit was not allowed to saturate ‘white’ communities. The ‘whites’ have pushed everyone around as though we are pieces on a puzzle board and that is why it was so easy for them to saturate so-called Black neighborhoods with crack. And Housing and Urban Development was not a Black person’s friend, that shit has been the cause of multiple horrors for us and yet, we embrace public housing and Section 8 vouchers. Like I say, I despair OF us because we embrace our annihilation.

      Kelley, this just got my goat up, hence this long and sometimes off topic comment. But I am just waaay past fed up with so many things. But I thank you most sincerely for your spot on comment. I do the same.

      1. I get you. I read knowing what’s going on, but I hope others read and get a wake up call before something like this (getting kicked for..?) happens to them or someone they love. Sadly, I think that extreme is what it’ll take for some of us to think straight.
