Veronica Vega N-Word – Hialeah, Florida

Veronica Vega thinks she can use the N-word because she has experienced racism.  In episode 7 of Love and Hip Hop Miami‘s first season, “I’m Done” Veronica explains that Trina had her back in 2015 when she released her song “Pay Me.” In the song, Veronica uses the N-word and Trina explains it’s because she’s from Hialeah, Florida.

Hialeah is in Miami-Dade County and has the highest percentage of Cuban and Cuban American residents of any city in the nation.  In the video at the end of this article, Veronica explains that people use the N-word in Hialeah, where she grew up.

Last year, Frank Artiles, a politician from Hialeah, used the N-word and gave the same explanation.  He was forced to resign.  In the following video, Artiles surprised many by apologizing for his comments.  He initially stood by his use of the racial slur, explaining that it was commonly used in Hialeah.

Veronica Vega is Cuban and Venezuelan but she explains that her great grandmother is from Africa.  Say what you want about Mona Scott-Young and Love and Hip Hop, the series is forcing debates that are necessary.  Prior to watching the “I’m Done” episode of the series, I had no idea that Hialeah existed.
