Insite Note: I received an email from a friend who was shocked by the emergence of a new website that’s following in the steps of MYSPACE.COM…And that’s all I’m going to say about it. Here’s a brief description.
From Email: There’s a new site with a controversial name now calls the
World Wide Web home. Niggaspace.com, modeled after the popular website,
Myspace.com, is not meant to offend anyone, according to the site’s creator, an 18-year-old high student from New Jersey named “Tyrone”—not his real name.
During a November interview on “The Playhouse,” a morning show on 104.5 WSNX, “Tyrone,” who would not reveal his race, said he was not anticipating the
response the site has received. “I honestly never thought it would generate that kind
of attention,” Tyrone said. “You start up a website and you hope to get visitors but I was not expecting this.” The creator said in the site’s mission statement that
his goal was to give the word “nigga” a positive meaning. According to him, he wanted the word to personify images of brotherhood, fraternity and friendship.
