I think the word comes a reagea-punk band called bad brains ( This was an American
all-black hardcore punk and heavy metal band (quote wikipedia).

In the netherlands (an i suspect in many other languages) neger
originaly stoud for a group of dark skinned people living south of the
sahara (wikipedia in dutch but also available in german, swedish... The terms is derived from the
latin word niger which means black.

So the term negerpunk would then translate to punk performed by niger
people. In this context i see this could be politically incorrect but
not racial discrimination.


After a time, you may find that "having" is not so pleasing a thing,
after all, as "wanting." It is not logical, but it is often true.
