Tom Hanks son Chet defended his use of the N-word.The son of Tom Hanks and actress Rita Wilson, Chester Hanks, is defending his right to freely use the n-word as he is a rapper, and he believes it “unifies the culture of hip-hop across all races.”Chester, also known by his rapper name ‘Chet Haze’ captioned a photo he posted on Monday via Instagram (@chethanx), containing the n-word, then followed it up with another post defending why he used the n-word in the first place.Chet wrote:Click the link in my bio to my soundcloud Go Listen to my new songs #Juice ft @chillthatdude and #A100and oh yeah bih I do say the n word in real life amongst my black friends who get me and can’t nobody tell me I can’t say what the fuck I feel like no disrespect to the struggle of black ppl during the civil rights movement but it’s 2015 now and yes there are white niggas… Asian niggas… Mexican niggas… Get wit the times bihhh lmao ???????????????????????????????????? more music coming ??The 24 year-old, drew greater criticism following the post and by earlier today he explained his argument as to why he has the right to use the slur.Chet says:“If I say the word nigga I say it amongst people I love and who love me. If I say “fuck yall hatin ass niggaz” it’s because that’s really how I felt at the time. And I don’t accept society getting to decide what ANYBODY can or can’t say. That’s something we call FREE SPEECH. Now I understand the older generation who grew up in the Jim Crowe era might have strong feelings against this. And that’s understandable… But what I’m saying is this is 2015… And even tho we are still far from where we need to be and black people are still being literally KILLED by a RACIST and fucked up system… We have also reached a point where the word can no longer have a negative connotation if we so choose. And who is to say only black people can use it? The way I see it, it’s a word that unifies the culture of HIP-HOP across ALL RACES, which is actually kind of a beautiful thing. It’s a word that can be used out of camaraderie and love, not just exclusively for black people. What’s the point in putting all these built up “rules” about it. It’s time to let go. You can hate me or love me for it, but can’t nobody tell me what I can or can’t say. It’s got nothing to do with trying to be a thug. It’s about the culture of the music. And that’s all I have to say about that (no pun intended) lol. It’s all love. Some people will get it, some people won’t. Either way, Ima keep living my life however the fuck I want. ALL LOVE”.
