A Rant..

So today I was at school earlier than usual and I walked by a group of hispanics..well every word they said ended with the N word....I was like wtf??? I find it hilarious that we have these people that try to assimilate with a culture they know nothing about other than on MTV....then they use words that have nothing to do with their culture...I was walking with a friend of mine at the time and well she is straight out of africa...accent and all...and she couldnt believe what she was hearing...having said this I know I have heard it before but whats the deal....she says people are losing their culture and trying to fit in with a subculture...she also says that this subculture is not even representative of the black culture that really exists...I totally agree with her...I grew up in a very diverse neighborhood and I remember we all showed our own culture where as now I see people do not even know their culture except for their last names...What happened I might ask to peoples diversity and when was it inclined to us to act ghetto when the people in the actual ghetto are in a struggle to survive...EX. New Orleans, Harlem....So I ask my self is America becoming stupid my country being over run by stupidity? I do believe so...we actually accept people acting in a negative way...

Very good family friends of mine are from Africa.... Whites nontheless but still from mauritius africa the french occupied east coast, but still they have been exposed to the other cultures there and their stories are amazing.....



I play mmorpg's with people from all over the world and to hear and see how the vast majority of the world perceives the US and the events we never really get the full story too due to our media is astonishing. Thing i dont quite get is if they all view us this certain way, why is it, they all rush our borders and try to get in. I think its because of our diversity and subcultures.. look at the Japanese gang bangers blasting rap music and calling each other the "N" word.. Its all about coolness and acceptance, for whatever reason it may be, people think its cool to belong to these subcultures. While the educated and people who are less likely to need a sense of belonging to a group or subculture will always look at it differently.

All in all I look those people in the eyes the same as any others and go on about my merry way. not disrespecting their choices to be or act that way, and not even trying to understand them, I just respect the fact we are different and move on.

it's all about education.
can have 2 brothers standing side by side, one with education and one a dropout. betting that just by listening to the two talk will tell you who is who.
one tries to talk in an educated manor and the other wants to show u how like a "gangsta" he is.
question? what the purpose is a "grill" for?
wonder how many college educated people walk around with a "grill"?

i thought this was going to be a good rant........so ur mad cuz some "hispanics" that go to the same school u do talk like that, humm, were they wearing tap shoes? did u tell them u had a hispanic last name and u knew every aztec, olmec, and inca and u do blood sacrifices in ur spare time to remember a dead culture

1 question- why have a link to ur myspace if "this" site is mainly "guys" riding bikes?

oppinions are like , everybody has one, take this to an EMO site that noone will read cuz they cut thier wrists lol, or get a diary

dont be haters, now you all know i like to keep it gangsta (see sig). the debate over the n word will go on forever. yes, america is getting stupid . i think this was on the cover of time magazine? america is falling behind in science. should be no surprise as america has been behind in academics for quite a while now.
