West Reveals Racial Lines In Slang Use

Hip-hop star Kanye West is advising his white counterparts that they can only use certain slang terms when they're out of style for black people.

The JESUS WALKS rapper - who recently charged that US President George W Bush "doesn't care" about African Americans - believes that certain slang words should only be able to cross racial barriers when they're no longer in style for black people.

He says, "I think white people are allowed to say 'bling'. They are allowed to say old-school black slang, like 'hottie' and 'homie'.

"Actually, I do not think that (white people) are allowed to use slang until it is at least a year old. If you say a slang word too early, it's like you're trying to be black. So as long as the slang is a little played out, you're all good."

Oh and one more thing, I just wanted to comment on Cheevz's remark about prohibiting blacks from using the English language until we're finished with it. Since when have blacks spoken English? Very few of the ones in my area speak anything resembling English. Here's an idea though, how about if all the whites give up their infatuation with black culture and return to "being white"...Yup... no "urban" attire, actually sit in the middle of your car seat while driving and speak the way your parent taught you to. Blacks have successfully created their own culture. They have BET and a host of other things which they have claimed singular domain to. Why don't we give them back their oh-so-precious slang???

Thank God for Kanye's wisdom. Lord knows we po white folk need all the help we can get when it comes to supplementing our inferior white culture with the infinitely superior, tragically hip black culture. Puhleez. This self-appointed arbiter of trendy linguistics is just another flava of the week who thinks he has some valid social perspective to offer because he has attained a modicum of fame. If those are his rules, then we should hip him to ours:If you're going to wear "white" clothes, make sure the white community has disposed of the trend as well. That polo shirt and upturned collar have (sadly) never gone out of style. Who's he zoomin'? Is he trying to be white? And if the black community follows suit and emulates his style, then there's one more item of "formerly white" apparel that we can kiss goodbye. Anyone remember when Timberlands were the domain of whites? Now if you're white and you wear those, you probably talk with a blaccent as well.I don't know what's worse. That this was actually a newsworthy item, or that I took the time to comment on it. Sheesh.

NIGERSSUCKRIGHT?'s picture

NIGERSSUCKRIGHT?

I guess everyday you learn something new.Did you know...and this is so stupid of me to ask because I'm sure you intellectual redneck hillbillies know this...you all know that Africa is called the cradle of humanity right? Meaning...hmmm...how do I say this in a way you guys can understand. I mean, all you white people are just so much smarter than me because I'm just a dumb niger. And not only am I a niger...but I'm a woman! Life started on Africa. If you follow the theory of evolution anyways. And then one day wayyyy after that...white people decided they were better because of their skin and their language and they took black folks as slaves. I understand the logic though. I mean "DUH" take whats free right? I should know about taking what's free, I'm black. I "just want a free lunch"White people completely exploited blacks.Tormented them. Isolated them. And NOW, when one of you incredible white people see a "dumb n****r" on TV making money, when you hear hip-hop, or when you hear Kanye West say something about Bush (who is oh my God the best)NOW...on this comment board, or at home...Kanye is a NIGER right? And you hate nigers don't you? NOW you want to use this FAKE article as an excuse to mouth of about us big lipped koons dont cha? because white people...sorry to say...if you couldnt see this article is fake thenAM I FUKING GLAD THAT I AM BLACK. you know what? You were alll black once too. And one day your white world will come crumbling down because of your ignorance.And just because YOU white people are stupid and take this article seriously then that means ALL white people are stupid, right?Just like if Kanye really said that then ALL blacks are stupid nigers, right?Is this why you never smile back? Or why you stare at me and my boyfriend because we dress different?I am just so ignorant though so forgive me. Really, i aint want no trouble hea.I just think you neo nazis need to give that "blacks are always blaming whites" bulls**t a rest because SORRY...but it IS your mother fukin fault. It's the fault of your ancestors and every time a white person says n****r or something to disrespect another color you only prove my point when I say thatdeep down in ALL of your hearts black people will NEVER be equal to you, right? So how is Kanye wrong when he says Bush doesn't care about black people? Even if some of you aren't rasicst, you deep down find yourself superior. The thing is your all nigers though. I'm black.THE ARTICLE IS FAKE. so whose ignorant? YOU for believing it.You white trash need to get your heads out of your ass.fukin crackers. Babylon will fall.

I bet if one of you backward a$$ cracker-country-fuggs ever form ya mouths to drop the N-Bomb in front of a few of ya N**g*r friends. I bet ya a$$es are carried out on a stretcher. Anyway this is a fake article. And English isnt even your language, remember, you happen to be a backwoods trailer-fabulous dumbarse, therefore you speak a certain dialect of Hill-Billy. Gosh, if Kanye said something like that then you aint much more of a different racist then he is! Check yourself. (Yes you can use that, its more than a year old).

I can not believe what Lmfaorofl said. First of all there is no proof of inbreeding (learn talk about being proper, learn to spell) In fact if you want to talk about inbreeding then that would include all of us back in the beginning of time. I am married to a beautiful Nigerian woman and she is the most intelligent person I know (She graduated 1st in her class @ the #1 university for computer science) So if you don't mind shut up think really hard and maybe you can smell some smoke rise from that piece of rock that is in your head. Any ways on topic, I am a white male and I love old school, back when you could just rap about whatever. I use slang some times, but the N Slang should never be used by any one any time. I have people tell me to mind my own business or they will say "it does not affect you because you are white". It does, you have to remember my children are Nigerian and I don't want them to use it because it is a word that no good has ever from it. In regard to Kanye he needs to remember that slang in general is about where you’re from, not what the color of your skin is. I have an extensive memory of old school and would challenge him any day if he thinks he knows more about the subject.

How does a rascist asshole like this get such fawning media attention? I guess it's okay to be a bigot as long as you are a minority or leftist. Pray that we eventually get the conservative government that all these ultra liberals like to claim we already have.

I'm sorry POOR is not an excuse to not head to higher ground! If I knew something was coming I would get out of the way. If my poor life in New Orleans was "all I had" then I would get the heck out of dodge. It's not worth dying over. Walk, run, get away, or you may die! People have been poor and carless for thousands of years and their pride didn't get in the way of their survival. I do feel sorry for these people and have donated but I feel alot of this was avoidable and people are looking for someone to blame. Race wasn't an issue until someone thought to blame it. And a need to survive is obvious but don't loot televisions, or stereos, they're not going to help you SURVIVE. and why shoot back at the people trying to help. Don't bite the hand that feeds you!
