I don't think white people like when black people talk "white" around them. The best thing is to be your black self without being ignorant. You can still talk with your "black tone" and "black cadence" but just remain professional. You don't have to throw your entire culture out the window and adopt a new one to appease a certain race. Do you talk with a Hispanic English accent around Hispanics to make them comfortable? It's ridiculous to even think about that. White people are not fans of that. How would you feel as a black man if you had a white kid from the suburb try to talk with a "black tone" constantly? It would be annoying. Whites will have more respect for you if you are true to yourself. Just talk with your black tone. You already are employed. The pretend stage should be over with. You can have a black tone and still be professional.

Exactly. It's a cultural thing...just like we wouldn't expect a White dude to walk up to us and ask us about the last episode of friends or seinfeld. I've had it happen to me a few times and I give them all three of these faces:





But Seinfeld was watched by everyone

That sh*t was hilarious when I was younger and I still enjoy it today.

Even though the skit was funny, this is actually pretty interesting. I've been guilty of this a couple of times. It makes me wonder why exactly people feel the need to change up? Is it so others can understand what we say easier? I don't change the tone of my voice, but I do change how word things.

That's a BIG NO according to that guy. You were born Black so all your hobbies and tings you like were predetermined. Such nonsense I tell you. All these people on here scared to be themselves at work.

and you clearly misunderstood what he was saying. He is saying, why does it have to be when you speak proper, YOU'RE SPEAKING WHITE but when you're not YOU'RE SPEAKING BLACK. what kind of nonsense logic is that.
clearly you don't understand and are probably a 20k food service person too. his question was ignorant as was your response. I spoke on this from a perspective that matters and thats moving up in the corporate world and getting raises.. thats the only point to working. going to a job speaking like you in your neighborhood with your homeboys will not get you anywhere in life. even your favorite hood rapper has learned you can only get so far talking about "partna, nowhatimean, hell to the nawl, or my favorite showl is.." that sh*t dont fly when real money involved. we are all actors trying to get that RDJ part.

when white folk say you sound uneducated they are really saying "i'm confused with your CHOICE of speak, anyone with common sense would know you need to speak in a manner everyone can understand". thats all that is..you speak to your parents in a different manner than you do your friends.. is that acting home trained or just realizing where you are how your language will be perceived?

Wow, you're an idiot. I have no clue where you are trying to go with your response because I never said anything about NOT CHANGING THE WAY YOU SPEAK OR BEHAVE IN A CORPORATE SETTING. Please learn how to read and understand what you're reading. I repeat again for the slow minded individuals such as yourself.

My question from the start that has never changed is:

Why does speaking PROPER have to be considered WHITE. Why can it just be speaking proper?


If you can not answer this then just don't say nothing.

This! Thank you! Also, smh at grown people having to switch up the way they talk. As I got older, I matured and so did the way I spoke.
