    Honestly to me this video borders on racist and stupidity. I can't decide which is stronger.

    Agreed, but people love to bring up "the history and what things USED to mean" as opposed to what they mean TODAY. It is a never ending debate that is eventually given up by both parties or turned into mud slinging back and fourth.

    I think people are confusing the one that ends in er, with the one that ends in a, one is a racist slur in majority of instances its used the other is not racist at all.

    Yeah I agree it's innocent enough, but there is some racist undertones IMO. These people don't seem racist to me, but the choice to use the word "nigga" to appeal to a youthful demographic is kind of pushing the envelope. Lest we forget our history so easily.

    Oh, I know. But it stems for the N word ending with ER. Black people took it and made it their own. I forgot how it was described. Either way, it is not a racial slur, and people who think it is just are not open to the idea of the word not being racist because they do not understand modern day African Americans who use the word.

    There's actually a lot of confusion about that word, especially outside of the United States. It's not a racial slur when used between black Americans (-a, not -er), however they may interpret it as a racial slur when it's used by other ethnic groups, even if the tone was jocular. The use of the word can also be seen as appropriating black culture, which the black community finds offensive.

    With that said, the video isn't racist and doesn't have racist undertones, the creators are either naïve, money-hungry, or both.

    Its crazy that inspiration from african-american culture = racist and uproar about it, but if you take inspiration from any other culture(except american-indian) there is no uproar and you will get people supporting you for promoting a culture.

    That guy reminds me of my grandpa, he wanted to be cool and closer to us kids always dancing and singing. When I was young I was always so embarrassed but now he's gone the only thing left are my memories, wish I have joined him in those awkward dances (Look 'iho' I'm doing the macarena, aren't I great, o_O yes granddad you're doing fine ... then hides.)

    I don't think they want to be offensive... their doing the best that they can to get more christian members. Hey at least it's not about raping, looting or gang bangin stuff (not fond of rapping but everyone has different taste)

    I find it creative. Surely you can't put this music creation in negative connotation. People have been trying to pull these kids out of the streets for years now. Do you know how unaccomplished you feel when you exhaust all of your resources? I can understand why they would turn to such an approach. When everything else fails you must try something different. Do you have a better idea? Actually do you even have a good cause?

    Do not mock peoples efforts to make the world a better place. Please do not, you have plenty of material to mock elsewhere. And it wont make you look smarter in any way.
    Jesus Christ is my nigga :D

    If you want to save young people from destructive choices you need to find ways to change the culture when it comes to drugs and alcohol.

    So cruel... Just another money making scheme, can't find Pastor Jim Colrick or West Dubuque 2nd church of christ

    A quick search on the Google reveals that there's no pastor preaching in Iowa under the name of Jim or James Colerick; there's no Jim or James Colerick to be identified, period. (For reference, my mother's pastor pops up as the first result when you search his name on Google.)

    Colerick's purported place of preaching in the video is a church in Dubuque, Iowa, called the West Dubuque 2nd Church of Christ. That's a real church—or at least it was. Its website's News section proclaims that it shut down in the summer of 2004.
    The site itself has a lot of standout peculiarities. For one, it still portends to represent an active church on every other page, with a contact page that directs to an "info" email and a leadership section "coming soon."
    What's more, the site's Who.is information attests that the site was last updated Feb. 13, 2013, and that it's seen quite a bit of activity of late—activity that's come nine years after the church's doors closed for good.
    Other clues can be found in the ridiculousness of language. It's not altogether impossible for a Midwestern pastor to drop the N-word over and over again in a rap about a person he regularly refers to as his lord and savior, but it is rather peculiar, isn't it? You wouldn't exactly think that a guy so hellbent on communicating with God and his divine homies would take such a lax look at language. But hey, I'm not from Iowa. Fake or for real, the joke's on us viewers either way. Whoever this Brian Spinney guy is has set up an AdSense account on his video and strung us along to the tune of about $600, according to AdSense earnings discussed on Warrior Forum. If he's lying, and he created the video in 2013 in an effort to drum up some wide-eyed reactions, he's certainly earned them.

    And if he's not, and the video's legitimate, well then, I just spent an hour and a half writing a story about a racist pastor who probably doesn't care one iota about what I think about the way he hails Jesus.
