Black people need to stop fucking hating on each other and praise each other when we are living and doing better. BUT, i will say this, just because you live in a white community does not mean you have to totally conform and i have met blacks that have done that, it is like they are literally trying to be white or live to be excepted, validated by whites, even going out of there way to make them feel comfortable-but what about your comfort. Like Lauryn hill said 'why do black people always have to be the ones to settle'. If we want to be excepted as who and what we are we must except who and what we are, and to be proper or speak properly does not equate to 'sounding' white. I speak properly (When i feel like it) Yet my tone or rhythm of speach is very much black, lol. I like talking/speaking 'black' as well, lol. We have manage to create or own lingo/language/pigeon tongues/dialect and it is beutiful, Ebonics itself is a dialect that is constantly changing, for we are cretive people, constantly reinventing our selves. Not our faul if everyone esle is plain or boring, or both! We is it that everything we do, or anything 'black' is equated to being improper or bad- we have our own identity yet we are American, that in itself is poetic to me. When black kids sage there pants and dress however it is looked at as ignorent or something negative, most likekly you cant work looking like that, and i dont disagree with that BUT white kids could dress like goths, punks, and dirt bags and not get as much flack or critisim, especially in the media! And they even hold jobs, at least here in newyork-that's a fucking dubble standered. Anyways, we need to stop the hate amongst ourselves within our race, and we seriously need to learn how to not air our dirty laudry only because of this double slandered. We should though talk amongst our selves, with each other with open honsty in order to resolve our issues. Every race does this, so why shouldn't we! I dont want to here our shit aired of CNN where the group being addressed most likely isnt even watching CNN,so what's the point? just an example hinted at Bill Cosby.
