YOU TALK WHITE by ScooterMagruder
You’re not black, you talk white: I get that a lot. Tell me what you would do if you were in my spot. Limp when I walk? Or put a twang in my talk? And if I get good grades, does that make me soft?
If I acted like a thug, you would say I was faking.Not all black people live in the hood. You must be mistaking me for some preconceived stereotypes in your life cause I talk like I’m educated not like I’m white.
And yes, I’m full black, I’m not mixed. Don’t look surprised. Your sticks and stones can help me build my chimney: still I rise.
I really think it’s time we oughta examine why talking white is considered talking proper.
So, let’s take it back.
Let’s go, way back in the day. When we were 3/5’s human and during the slave trade. Before the bloods and the crips, gang banging and AKs Nobody talked white or black, they talked slavemaster and slave.
A main difference was the occupation Compounded by the fact slaves weren’t afforded an education. Things Civil War things changed luckily, Now you weren’t talking white. You were just being uppity.
Know your place boy. Separate but not equal. Jim Crow was the Nations’s bird, way before the bald eagle.
Oh, I’m sorry I didn’t mean any disrespect, You’re just not like any of the other black guys that I’ve ever met. You know like the stereotypical ones, With their pants sagging, gold teeth, and all of their guns.
When I hear things like that…that’s when I feel like exploding. Either you’re ethnocentric or exhibiting self-loathing.
Talking proper isn’t white. Talking black isn’t ghetto. Ratchet comes in all forms: White, Black, Brown & Yellow
So stop judging my race by the actions of a few. I don’t think all white people are rednecks cause of Honey Boo Boo. So next time I hear “you talk white” know I’m thinking this: I guess it’s true what they say, ”ignorance is bliss.”
