'They're standing on the corner and they can't speak English.

I can't even talk the way these people talk:

Why you ain't,
Where you is,
What he drive,
Where he stay,
Where he work,
Who you be...

And I blamed the kid until I heard the mother talk.

And then I heard the father talk.

Everybody knows it's important to speak English except these knuckleheads.

You can't be a doctor with that kind of crap coming out of your mouth.

In fact you will never get any kind of job making a decent living.

People marched and were hit in the face with rocks to get an Education, and now

We've got these knuckleheads walking around.

The lower economic people are not holding up their end in this deal.

These people are not parenting. They are buying things for kids.

$500 sneakers for what?

And they won't spend $200 for Hooked on Phonics.

I am talking about these people who cry when their son is standing there in an orange suit.

Where were you when he was 2?

Where were you when he was 12?

Where were you when he was 18 and how come you didn't know that he had a pistol?

And where is the father? Or who is his father?

People putting their clothes on backward:
Isn't that a sign of something gone wrong?

People with their hats on backward, pants down around the crack, isn't that a sign of something?

Isn't it a sign of something when she has her dress all the way up and got all type of needles [piercing] going through her body?

What part of Africa did thiscome from??

We are not Africans. Those people are not Africans; they don't know a thing about Africa...

I say this all of the time. It would be like white people saying they are European-American. That is totally stupid.

I was born here, and so were my parents and grand parents and, very likely my great grandparents. I don't have any connection to Africa, no more than white Americans have toGermany,Scotland,England,Ire land, or theNetherlands. The same applies to 99 percent of all the black Americans as regards toAfrica. So stop, already!!!

With names like Shaniqua, Taliqua and Mohammed and all of that crap .....And all of them are in jail.

Brown or black versus the Board of Education is no longer the white person's problem.

We have got to take the neighborhood back.

People used to be ashamed. Today a woman has eight children with eight different 'husbands'-- or men or whatever you call them now.

We have millionaire football players who cannot read.

We have million-dollar basketball players who can't write two paragraphs. We, as black folks have to do a better job.

Someone working at Wal-Mart with seven kids, you are hurting us.

We have to start holding each other to a higher standard.

We cannot blame the white people any longer.'

Well the President uses the same slang.
On 60 mins tonight he referred to his new white house home as "Pretty good digs".

No one stops and corrects this type of language they just gave it a title and let it go.

Speak English not Ebonics, use prepositions.

I speak to people on the telephone daily that are adults and sound like they are five.Dont try and sound "White" just make sense when you open your mouth.

The President is a disgrace. He's trying to be cool instead of running the country. He is clueless.

check out these moments of comedy from Bush. If Obama is a desgrace, what does that make this idiot?

Why focus on the past 8 years? He's not in office any longer. Plus, give Obama 4 years (not 8, Obama does NOT get 8 years!!) like he's started off and there will be plenty of fodder for a you-tube video. Anytime he gets off the teleprompter he seems to stick his foot in his mouth - from the Nancy Reagan seance flap to the Special Olympics bowling fiasco...

You forgot the best one. Remember the speech where the teleprompter went out and he told everybody to make sure their tires were properly inflated?? He said that alone would save enough oil to get rid of our dependence on foreign oil!! LOL

Actually, my favorite was when he got off the teleprompter and he was talking about asthmatic children needing breathalyzers...inhalators.... you know what I'm talking about.
Priceless!

what about Michelle Obama? Saturday morning on the news she was talking about her garden she is having planted at the white house. Michelle said they would plant lettuces. Wonder if she meant to say different types of lettuce. Where did she graduate from?

I'm sorry upchuck! I don't use Firefox that has a built in spellchecker like you obviously do. Some are not perfect. You are casting stones when you live in your own glass house.

Casting stones?? Nope, I'm not. But if you are going to call somebody an idiot, make sure you are more intelligent than they are.

It's amazing how you guys find us so interesting. Why are you so worried about the way we use or words? You guys are actually just sitting around discussind the way black people talk. How stupid. Evidently, yall don't have a life. We could care less about what you have to say about us. We must be a threat to you if you have to sit around and find some sort of fault in us. So what if we don't use proper "English" in your sight. Who cares?! WE still gone make it and we still are going to be successful. Find something else to talk about and I pray that God would open up your minds and put love in your hearts so there won't be so much foolishness and hatred around.
