Blacks pressure other blacks to all be the same. Speak ghetto, listen to black music, dress a certain way...etc. If a black person chooses to listen to country music or speak clear English, they are chastised.
There are two things people will always judge you on:
1. How you look
2. How you speak

If you choose to speak "slave"... or "ghetto", you limit your life options.

I know many professional black women who turn on the sing-song-slang as soon as they have a black friend on the phone. "Grl, whachu talkn bout",hang up the phone and be someone else. Black on black pressure. Gotta speak ghetto or my friends will call me "white".

It's been 157 years since slavery reigned over the land and blacks were largely uneducated and had no choice but to "speak stupid". that was a long time ago.

So true... Urban Dictionary definition of Ghetto Speak is: Someone who cannot speak coherently. I have no idea why ANYONE would purposely choose to speak incoherently....

I attribute alot of that to low intelligence. If you make a black mad, educated or not, you will get called a mufuka!

I would first like to ask a question. This is Greeneville; how do you know what black people talk like?
You are watching too many movies on tv!
Black on black pressure!!!!lol

We all have a southern dialect.

Do you not speak differently in different settings?

When you are at work in a professional setting, you speak like you have some intelligence about you.

When you are texting, you talk different language.

When you are at a gathering with friends, you talk different.

Why are you so upset that a black person can be diverse?

Are you upset that we can adapt to situations in ways that you cannot?

Why would we as a white race be jealous of anything? We as white people are not looked down upon when we enter a store. The clerk doesn't watch us. We are almost always picked first for an interview over any other color. With names like Laquisha, Lashan, Shanaynay or whatever else your parents decided to just throw out there are given it almost always throws you to the bottom of the pile. Blame your fine heritage & your proud black parents for the downfalls, don't blame us "white" people!!!

Call it dumb or whatever, but there is a lot of truth in that post. Argue the facts of what he said. He made 4 or 5 points. Tell us why they are not true one by one.

Well, for one, clerks don't just watch black people for stealing. Do you read the paper? There is a lot more white ppl being busted for stealing, dealing, taking drugs etc. Employers do not choose white people over blacks either, for one they don't want to be sued for discrimination. So, tell me what facts does he have?

No they don't watch JUST black people, but every single one of the flash mobs that I have seen on tape has been black, so they may garner a little extra attention from clerks. There are more white people arrested because there are more white people, by about 6 to 1. So employers hire blacks only because they don't want to be sued for discrimination? What does that tell you?

If we are talking about people arrested around Greeneville, there are about 30 whites for every 1 black. I would think that way more whites get arrested here.

Btw, my "wigger ass" graduated from South Greene. I have never dated a black guy, I don't even have many black friends. I don't talk black (I don't talk like an inbred hillbilly either) so, what makes me a wigger? Please explain, I'll be waiting for your brilliant replied! Also, I'm not always ashamed to be white, only when I see racist dumb shit from people like yourself.
