    To the black posters,

    If a white person that you knew asked you this, how would you honestly respond?

    So you would say "Oh it's cuz we drink koolaid" as a response?

    I'm asking for real honest replies on how you'd respond to the question. This is Real Talk aint it.

    Since I know the person I would explain to them that since there are over 35 million black people in this country from varying backgrounds, ethnic groups, and geographical areas the question is kind of silly. Sure there are some that may fit the stereotype but that would be like me asking why are white people rednecks.

    but isn't that still a broad generalization confirming the person's stereotypes anyway?

    Would your answer be different if it were someone you didn't know that well?

    I would turn it around on them, insult them, belittle them, and make them regret asking the question.

    But the reason I'd be thinking is that often times the most visible black people are poor disadvantaged teenagers in big cities that have been desensitized by the experience of growing up poor and in slums with little support structure and recieving even less of an education from their local school system.

    Here you go with that long educated answer. My answer would be short and ignorant "Mane Fuck You"

    The substance would be the same, but the tone probably would include a bit more arrogance and I would talk down to them to make the feel bad for asking such a stupid question. But the problem is that they're general so damn dumb that they won't get it anyway. You still have try cause you might make it through to one rockhead someday. And unfortunately there are blacks that think the same way and would be agreeing with the dumbass not realizing that the person thinks the same thing about them too.

    even if it were a white person that you knew and you would probably have to be around them often for whatever reason? Let's say the person wasn't TRYING to be ignorant but was seriously asking the question... would that change how you would respond?

    Too a certain degree...but really the question is dumb just like JB said. I mean does this person really seem to believe we are ALL ghetto???

    Also do this person realize that the word ghetto was institued in the American language based on poor white immigrant Irish that moved here from Ireland ??

    is that a dis to Yhate?

    jk

    but yeah i feel you on that part in bold. Uppity nigrows in my classes would often respond with somethin in agreement wit the ignorant statement but then go on to how that doesn't apply to them because they had good upbringing.

    I don't give them what they want . . . .the mere fact that I'm educated hurts a person that thinks like that to their very core. It fucks up their whole world view. I seen two types of responses shame for asking a dumb question and getting called on it, and anger for getting exposed as a dumbass.

    I was actually thinking about a conversation that I was having with some older women this weekend at home in North Carolina. I thought you were supposed to get wiser with age.

    i would say that ghetto people come in all sades of color but black people look down upon people who seem to be proper they consider them to be white.

    I see people of all races do things in public but logically I don't internalize it. I don't engage in group think and why are we only lumped into the group when its something negative. A negro at the mall dressed like rainbow bright or goes crazy and cooks his girlfriend on a grill, and people looking at my ass for an explanation like I know his ass. But Oprah and Bob Johnson make a billion dollars, Denzel wins an Oscar, black man becomes a rocket scientist and goes into space and then he isn't like black people . . . .they get the "well you're not like the rest of them" line thrown out. We help perpetuate our own inferiority complex.
