A clothing store in Taiwan that sells "hip-hop gear."

When I went to Austria, the music stores all sold American CDs. Except they call rap black music. There are literally signs that say, "Rock, Alternative, Black Music..."

Noah said...

Well, before hip-hop was profitable enough to warrant it's own section in most music stores, it was often lumped in with R&B. Some other music stores would actually lump all "black music" into either R&B or Soul.

The characters say "hei ren wang," which literally means "black man king"

Anyone who finds this offensive is an idiot ... this has been named by a people who's first language is not English and very likely, they have gotten the word from American media. I'm sorry, but if Black comedians and hip-hop stars didn't use such a derogatory term to refer to their own people every five minutes, perhaps other countries where hip-hop culture is popular would not make such a linguistic mistake.

This is not racism.

OH GOD, EPIC FAIL!!...And they use "Nigga" to address each other, not "Nigger". That would just be stupid.

Really? Should anyone be surprised by this? Germany, like Austria, is unconsciously racist as well labeling Hip-Hop/R&B/Soul "Black Music." Of course if Europeans found classical music/European Pop/Country/Alt. Rock/Rock labeled "White Music" universally in the States there would be a public international discussion.

As for Asians, at one level, I could see them adopting the term from music but at another level the US public discussion about "The N word" in recent years has become just as prolific around the world as Hip-Hop. Japan is notorious for their racism on television. At the end of the day Asians, for the most part, are clear about the fact that term is offensive but because they are meek/submissive towards Whites and we live in a world that still partially revolves around White supremacist values they don't care about offending others since White people do it/have done it in the past. I would kind of go for the "They're" ignorant plea had the Chinese government not banned the Lebron James commercial where they felt the Asian man was being mocked and I know that was huge news all over China.

Boy, there are some really stupid ass people here. "There are no Black people who visit Tawain or China". You need to be locked up for being too dumb.

Found it on Google Maps and the derogatory word has been removed. The Chinese name remains unchanged (黑人王, literal translation - Black Person King)

Those who find it offensive are morons.. Their culture doesn't understand that it has a negative connotation. And then there are those who are so quick to jump the fence and scream RACIST! If such a stereotype wasn't portrayed- then I'm sure the idea of "nigger king" being acceptable wouldn't have translated into their culture as such.

To the nincompoop who thinks black people don't travel to China, Just got back from Shanghai, Beijing and Hong Kong and there are an abundance of profitable and productive blacks over there both living and traveling. I didn't experience any of the racial ignorance that is common in these "united" states. Why this store has this name, we'll never know but it should serve as reminder to all of us that hate is still an individual, internal festering sore that keeps us sick...

Racism never cease to amaze me especially to the one who continuously keep saying it's ok cause blacks don't travel to Taiwan, China or any other asian region. Your an idiot to think and a jackass to actually share those stupid retarded comments. Believe me blacks don't just travel there, they live there as well. I guess that really mean your passport is nonexistent.

I lived in Taiwan and I really do not think that this is intentionally racist...just a sign made by someone with shite English skills.

Why is that a problem, why would you want the world to think of black people this way? We are not limited to the USA, black folks are everywhere. Its bad enough we have this problem here, don't need it anywhere else.

Blacks are hated by many and loved by few just because the world knows we are true Kings and Queens and if they dont try to forever hold us down we will once again rule the world. Peace to my black nation. Black Thoughts.

African and African American People visit the world just like the ignorant person who posted that WE do not go to Taiwan. I am so sure you dont travel either. God this world sucks with people like you in it!!!

I've been to a lot of Asian countries and I've never seen a nigger in any of them.
I asked several people from Mongolia to Hong Kong "Why the lack of Africans?"
They all answered the same, We don't like niggers.

Offensive it is but we will defend it regardless of a past history that had to endure this derogatory word.Just reading these posts and how ignorance has ppl calling other ppl with an opinion this word.If they weren't ashamed or didn't mean malice in this word.They wouldn't be anonymous. That shows you how this word remains relevant. As an attack on innocent people.

Er... I lived in Taiwan for years, and for what it's worth, there are lots of black people.

The problem with niggers is not that they are black....They could eventually be green, blue, or pink.... The main problem is the way the behave.... Behaviour is the main issue...

You Europeans are funny. I know my history. Everything you've learned, we(Africans) taught you. The word "Nigger" doesn't get me angry anymore. African Americans don't have a problem. African Americans problem is that you Europeans and everyone else seems to have a problem with us. For a person to speak so negatively about ones race and fail to mention anything about yourself tells me something is wrong with you. Do you have low self-esteem? Are you tired of taking those extenze pills? Whatever the reason I'm not afraid of any man whether he's European African American or any other race. Grow up... Wait, you cant. That would would mean you would have to find something else to do with your free time.

I am an African American and I am somewhat offended by this word. All black people do not refer to one another as igga. This is an old stupid word that ignorant white men called their slaves. Black people are the most creative people on this earth and without iggas. White people and Asians,would not have or know anything. Now that white men are marrying and bringing Asian women to the United States, they are become bold like white women. To the Asian women, remember who brought you to the United States 30 years ago and to the white race, you make not like black people but your children and grandchildren do.

I'm black, been to Taiwan, Singapore, Indonesia, and got LOVE there. Taiwan was foremost among these. People were super courteous, we had regular convo. People would ask if they could come visit and go see the snow. I was told by some of the locals in the area that they like black americans because they feel like they are polite, and do things like hold doors open. People were super cool. Especially at the outdoor markets. They even have a festival called, "festival of the black people" celebrating the indigenous people of the island. My question is where they got the sign translated. What was the company / individual that translated and made the sign for them. Was it a Chinese company, a European company? Etc. Though, I'm not surprised. The media never promotes positive hiphop or messages. There was a store named with that word in Nigeria, and they were influenced by P. Diddy. So, nothing surprises me.

Oakland does not equal the hip hop media world. The "N word" is used repeatedly in hip hop media and these people who opened the store probably just went with it dud to the frequency of it's use. It doesn't need to be defined. Perhaps if it wasn't used so much by the hip hop artists then maybe a different word would have been used.

PS: the name of the store is translated "Black King" which in context sounds very respectable toward African Americans. Perhaps if another word was used it would have translated to something that was more appealing there wouldn't be so many comments about it being racist? But I guess you didn't know the liter translation of the name so maybe you should do some research Mr. ignorant.

Probably not translated correcy due to hip hop media.

By the way, to once again rule the world implies it was ruled before. When was that?
