Blacks learn how to act black by being black and around black people. Most (most) whites learn how to "act black" by watching BET or TRL. If you are white and you grew up around blacks, that's a little different. Not much, but a little. If you are...lemme just say this:
I went to a black college full of...well...black people. It was 94, and we were in atlanta, and everyone was acting all hard. Now during PARENTS weekend, these kids who were claimin' they were all hood and gangster and came from the projects suddenly changed their names from Vertigo and Polo to James and Beuford or what not, and Dr. and Mrs. so and so showed up like "Son!" That's just as bad. That - like whites tryna act black and mexican when they didn't grow up around it - is Posing. It sucks.
Now, as for many of us who are black and don't sound as ghettofied and ignant as how whites play it up when they do it based on TV (not the ones who know what they are doing and grew up around blacks) the reason is we are not trying to front. Think of gays who are effeminine. Ever noticed that gay effeminine men are more womanish than a woman? They over do it! Think of Andy Dick or the dude from Will and Grace versus...your girl or your mother. [dunno]
Same here. Posers over do it. That's how you can spot one.
^^^ haahaha @ YOU talking about posers... Seriously funny shit.
To be honest, none of us knows who is or isn't a poser on here. I mean, you'd have to see and observe the mannerisms of a person to really get a correct assessment. Otherwise, you're just guessing. Words on a page don't really show it. You'd be shocked as hell to meet me and person and see how I act. You'd finally get it, nahmean?
You're a 30 year old break through rapper... who looks 40 and still wears throwbacks and kakis or what ever you call 'em.
Excuse my ignorance, but how the hell do you act Mexican?
Ever hear of a stereotype?
Then why you think I'm asking? No I never heard any stereotypes about how Mexicans act, apparently.
Why is it so hard for people to just be themselves...
