Pass The Dutch!

Rihanna has acquired yet another title…. And I quote… the “ultimate n***a b***h“, according to Dutch magazine, Jackie.

Dutch Fashion Magazine Refers To Rihanna As 'The Ultimate N***aB*t**"

Parlourmagazine.com translates:
“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***ab***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.”
Wow! I’m surprised this article was published. NOW, would be a good time to resign! Don’t think Rih let that slide… Here is her response according to mtv.com
“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!” she wrote on Twitter. “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 Bitch’?!….Well with all respect, on behalf of my race, here are my two words for you … F— YOU!!!”
Editor-in-chief, Eva Hoeke has since apologized on behalf of the magazine, which can be found at
Ummm… apology? NO! I’m tired of the apologies. This is NOT slang… IT is NOT a harmless joke… It is NOT a mistake… And it is NOT OK! This is racism, if you ask me! Apologies for racism has become an excuse for ill-mannered, prejudice, and malicious individuals to hide behind ignorance! Where is the censorship and respect? What happened to proofreading? Who approved this article and who thought it was acceptable to publish? It saddens me to read/report on an article of this subject matter, especially with quickly 2012 approaching…
