His tweets caused quite a stir.
The rapper took to Twitter to share his confusion regarding the meaning of the n-word, leaving the public just as perplexed as he was. “Wow I just learned something that blew my mind my whole life I was taught the word N*gger didn’t mean black it meant ignorance but I just looked it up and it’s always meant black smh tell the kids the truth…” he wrote.
Ja later added, “I’m so confused. I need my history majors on this. If the word n*gger just means black, how did it become a derogatory term???… Is anyone else confused by this??? I was taught the word n*gger meant ignorant now I look it up it says it means black…” There were people who chimed in to give the rapper a history lesson, while there were others who thought his lack of knowledge was something to laugh about. Check out Ja’s tweets, along with a few responses, below.

Ja Rule is slowly learning where the N-word came from/means and is live tweeting the process. This is so sad (the content I need today).
This nigga Ja Rule had the nerve to say nigger doesn’t mean black it means ignorant………..
