Element Skateboards: Chad Muska's Usage of N-Bomb Not Racist

New York-based pro skater/musician Chad Muska was arrested on July 13 for felony vandalism--tagging his last name on both the El Capitan Theater and a Coffee Bean location in Hollywood. That story in itself, actually, is pretty boring.

The real story here? After security guards caught Muska, he decided to drop the n-bomb a few times--and, yes, the security guards are African-American, and yes, Muska is Caucasian. 

Meanwhile, Muska's sponsor, the Irvine-based Element Skateboards, is standing by their skater. Element told TMZ this morning, "There is a major difference between n***a and n***** and it's totally obvious he is not being racial at all."

In a video by TMZ (click here to watch), Muska is seated on some steps by the security guards. As he pleads to be let go, Muska says, "These motherfuckers right here with their white uniform, gold badge, black uniform, gold badge, all that bullshit. Niggers is fake right here! Honkies is real right here! Fuck all these niggers right here!"

Element goes on to tell TMZ that they stand by Muska with their full support.

Element Skateboards is a subsidiary of Billabong International and was founded in 1992. Amongst Element's sponsor list: Bucky Lasek, Bam Margera and Ray Barbee.

Muska (who has also produced a hip-hop record featuring artists like Biz Markie, Ice-T, KRS-One, McLyte, Flavor Flav and Raekwon) is currently being held on $20,000 bail.

What do you think of Muska's usage of the n-word? Take our poll below.

Wow, Element stands to lose the .02% of its market that is made up of blacks + whites that give a shit about this.

This dumbass. The problem may be one of two things, he got comfortable because he has black friends or he is a little racist on the inside and it takes gettin f'd up to bring it out. Regardless, you are a white boy and you look white and you were being racist calling yourself a honky and black security guards niggas. I will never support Element again for letting the rep get away with THAT excuse, he should have to apologize like every other public figure getting caught going on racial or homosexual rants

So let's get this straight-  this entitled skater- who sounds pretty flush- was tagging a Coffee Bean, and when he got caught, he called the security gaurds 'niggers' because they were doing their jobs-- in other words (his), "not 'real' niggers"?!  Who's not being real, you skater/street artist rich poser?  AND OCWeekly is trying to downplay it for him.  HELLO???  OCWeekly sucks.  It's a high school paper with a 'cool kids' complex.

Of course his comments were racist, and his actions were illegal.  I recommend that Element and Billabong dump him as a sponsor, or that everyone who is offended by his remarks and actions stop buying their products.  We can vote with our checkbooks, not just on this website.

Mr. Muska can say whatever he wants, he's practicing his constitutional right of freedom of speech. What he cant do (and get caught) is vandalize property that is not his own.

Not racist? Right. And I suppose if the security guard were a woman and he kept calling her the "C" word he would claim he wasn't sexist either...

The only nigger there that night was Muska. His punishment should be to cut all of his junk off and make him the bitch that he is. For real. Then we'll see how gangsta he is.

Are you kidding me right now? This is so god damn ridiculous. Has anyone ever watched a Muska skate video, this dude has been gangster ever since the Toy Machine and Shorty's days. I think we have more important things to worry about than a skateboarding millionaire, such as the oil spill that magically vanished into thin air...FOX

Racist. Whoever this guy is, he made some inflammatory statements that he should admit to and make ammends for.

Why should he have to apologize? It's a word that only has power if you let it. Tons of people use that word today in popular culture and it has no effect. Get over yourself, grow a sack and don't worry about what other people do.

 Uh, no one's downplaying anything here. I'm not sure what you're reading.

It's not about whether he had a "right" to say what he said or not. This is about his ridiculous claim that repeatedly using the "N" word to address a black person wasn't racist.
