Whites using urban slang terms
« on: September 10, 2017, 02:35:50 PM »
Sometimes those words are so much fun to say that white people can't help it. If it's not your natural way of speaking it can sound mocking. Does this anger those in the urban community? Is it cultural appropriation?

We don't have anyone "urban" here, so potentially hard for you to receive a good answer.

Not quite sure what you are driving at--not a hip hop lover nor urban.

Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

Why can't white people be urban? Plenty of white rapers and hip hop performers around.

This is like saying black people can't do classical music or Opera.

Love hip hop, just not the culture I'm from.

And I don't think most African Americans and inner city minorities have a problem with urban whites, they have a problem with suburban whites who haven't struggled a day in their life appropriating something "cool" without any understanding or care for why that culture developed the way it did.

I don't appropriate "urban cool".  Don't hit high or low, around the backside of in front too.

Rap only for thug gangsters?

Jazz only for 1930s Blacks?
