WEST REVEALS RACIAL LINES IN SLANG USE



Hip-hop star KANYE WEST is advising his white counterparts that they can only use certain slang terms when they're out of style for black people.

The JESUS WALKS rapper - who recently charged that US President GEORGE W BUSH "doesn't care" about African Americans - believes that certain slang words should only be able to cross racial barriers when they're no longer in style for black people.

He says, "I think white people are allowed to say 'bling'. They are allowed to say old-school black slang, like 'hottie' and 'homie'.

"Actually, I do not think that (white people) are allowed to use slang until it is at least a year old. If you say a slang word too early, it's like you're trying to be black. So as long as the slang is a little played out, you're all good."

i agree with you guys but this is a perfect example of how the media can misuse quotes or use part of a quote to portray a story in a different light, this sh*t happens all the time and a majority of the people who see it, don't do any further research and just take the story as truth, it happens to Howard Stern all the time, it seems like every morning he tells a story about a fake story, or twisted story, so the next time you guys read outrageous stories such as, "Barbara Bush says, 'Katrina response good enough for the poor'" just think about this and do your research before you form any opinions

this is the type of sh*t that segregates black and white people. if white people can't use slang just because it was made up or made popular by black people, that is like saying kanye can't wear polo's cause they are made by a white man.... i'm still gonna bump his music tho.

But even if he was joking, if your in the public eye like that you cant just say something like that and then say u were joking,,,,thats like saying eminem can just say that he was joking about that racist sh*t on that tape about black women and it would be ok! naw. i know thats a much more severe case, but its still not exeptable....i hope hes jokin' tho

I agree, regardless if west wus playin or not, that comment will be still taken way out of context by the media, and as a result, more racial barriors will most likely emerge
