The HOT 97 Morning Show

Hot Topic: Is The Word “Ignorant” Racist? (Rosenberg & Tiffany’s Heated Fight) [CALLS]

The extremely heated argument I walked into the other day between Rosenberg and our show director Tiffany was like being thrown into the middle of a war zone.

Believe it or not, the entire thing stemmed from Tiffany not knowing who Max B was. The word “ignorant” was thrown out there and then somehow that turned into a racial thing and I don’t know how it did.

The discussion was brought up again this morning and the real question here is, did it have to turn racial? Tiffany thinks by Rosenberg calling her “ignorant” and not knowing who Max B is, was pretty much calling her a “n---er.” Of course Rosenberg thinks that’s ridiculous and for a good reason. He believes she’s actually the racist one for even thinking that just because he’s white.

By calling her ignorant, he was simply saying what the word actually means and using it in reference to her not knowing about Harlem/Dipset's own Max B. Tiffany felt like she was being personally attacked when Rosenberg repeatedly said she was "ignorant."

/ˈignərənt/ Adjective

Lacking knowledge or awareness in general; uneducated or unsophisticated.

Lacking knowledge, information, or awareness about something in particular: "ignorant of astronomy".

So we took it to the streets and asked our listeners who they thought was wrong in this situation and by the overwhelming response on our Twitter and on our phones lines, one person won by a landslide lol.
