    Pretty sure the OP made it clear he was talking about people that had no ties to the "hood" at all, did you even read his post before you typed a novel about growing up in the hood?

    I agree with your point btw, he's talking about black people that grew up next to to the Cleavers though.

    Maybe it's like when you're talking gay. You talk gay sounding like an effeminate male. Till someone pisses you off I guess.



    Otherwise, you get your accents from the people you hear the most. Being family and friends. So, some people come up with fucked up accents.

    Don't worry about why Black people do anything. White people's main concern needs to be trying to find a way to be in the sun and not get skin cancer tbh.

    Accents are more regional than familial.

    Which is why children of immigrants sound like Americans.

    And I have a BA in sociology.

    Your accent has more to do with your childhood friends and where you grew up than your family.

    if you have a BA in sociology then you would know that thats just one Theory behind it, not factual.

    Well, every asshole can have a theory on sociology.

    There are things the majority of sociologist agree on though. And every teacher I've ever had that spoke on the subject had the same point of view.

    This is why I sound like I'm from Upstate, NY, instead of having a Polish or Long Island accent.

    Filling my troll thread with actual theories is a bad plan.

    tbh I'm aware of both sociological theories that are being mentioned regarding accent, and they are both true in many separate cases, with more instances falling toward Keeper's side of the argument.

    Nah for blacks having "another voice" is a necessity in most cases, no matter how fucked up it is.

    I remember the thread where @J o o k was trolling talking bout how he automatically throws out resumes of people with black names like Jamal and shit, but it's really true. Your accent is a result of where you grew up but many employers don't understand that and will judge you on the way that you speak, no matter how intelligent you actually are. I use my white voice for all professional maters so that my intelligence and resume can speak for me instead of my skin color and racial assumptions.

    DEAD@Using a "white voice". If im not getting hired for having a blk mans tone. That's not the job for me. Speaking proper english should surffice. This is why Jamal and Shaquita can't get a job. Even w/ a PH.D because they are exspected to sound like Becky and Trent.

    ppl using that "white voice" corny as hell

    I just use my "black voice" and simply pronounce my words correctly and use proper grammar.

    then you'll be labeled the smart black man with swagger and your white co workers wanna give u high fives in the elevator.
