Anyone who speaks in Ebonics, and act "gangsta" is an idiot in my eyes, if your really so smart use proper English.
Rap is'nt even music. Its just speaking fast while someone plays with a synthezier in the background, anyone can do that.
If any language should be the second official language in the US it should be Spanish. It seems to me that the hispanic portion of the population is growing the fastest and will become the majority eventually. Truth be known it should be required to learn a second language starting in middle school, it can really help you out later in life.

I'm starting to get annoyed by the whole thing i mean the music industry is becoming completely rap and R&B dominated i don't know why people feel that they need to change their ways to fit into this fad alot of my friends feel if you don't like rap youre nobody. I hate the lingo as well it gets REALLY annoying why talk like an uneducated person when i know your clearly bright and intellegent :shk: . I am not racist but when a person acts like that it makes me less motivated to know them i know "normal" african American i have lots as my friends but little by little they seem to sucoumb to the increasing "fad" . The sooner this absurd trend is over the better i don't know how much more of this i can take. Oh and one more thing why does a black person feel obligated to act this way they are stereotyping themselves it's very sad.

Yeah, and the problem is that if you try to tell them that, they'll call you racist. And I agree, rap isn't a fad. I know it sucks, but it's been around for a long time. I don't think we'll ever get rid of it, kids want to look tough. In order to look tough, they have to look stupid.
I have african american friends like that and it doesnt bother me. When i see whit people doing that kind of thing it does.
