Tiki hates black people probably not. Tiki wants to be viewed as white probably so.

terrible opinion, Tiki Barber seems like a cool person, and is interested in a lot more than just football which truthfully isnt the case with most NFL players

“Tiki Barber: nonthreatening, articulate, funny, intelligent, self aware and hugely confident without seeming like an ego-maniac. And then there is his diction, which is ethnically and geographically neutral, perfect for a news anchor".


Let me attempt to break this down...

First off....when it the term "nonthreatening" ever used to describe a white athlete?....White athletes who are a**holes away from their respective playing fields are usually described as "surly", "moody", or "intense".....During their home run chases, Mark McGwire was a horses a.ss most or the time & Sammy Sosa was Mr.Popular....People went out of their way to make excuses for McGwire..."he's just focused on playing baseball"....."he always has his game face on"...."he's just a private person"....BULLSHIIT!!....he was a roided up 6'5" 250 lb ball of attitude & roid rage, who people didn't know for sure if he would snap or not...Who ever thinks of an athlete as "threatening"?....most people idolize athletes & are just the opposite of scared when getting a chance to meet or socialize w/their idols....

Secondly...Appreciating Tiki's command of the English language is one thing, but to describe it as "ethnically neutral" implies that he doesn't speak in a manner traditionally a.ssociated w/his ethnicity.....if you've ever filled out info that asks for racial status, there is usually a box that reads "white/non-ethnic"...to me ethnically neutral means more like white or devoid of stereotypical racial mannerisms....& for Tiki to say:

" We grew up in a white middle-class community and had a mom who emphasized education and lived that neutrality”, Tiki says. “She didn’t speak that typical African-American diction”


in a backhanded way says that African Americans who don't come from white middle class neighborhoods, don't emphasize education or are able to attain his mastery of words....I don't fit into that catagory, yet am articulate enough to get my point across...even though she couldn't pay for me to further my education post high school, my mother encouraged it & devoted herself to our academic development...she is not a-typical of mothers I know...a lack of resources doesn't equate a lack of intrest...

I know this is turning into a book....in conclusion....

Even though I acknowledge that as a people we're regressing in so many aspects, I ain't about to shiit on my people to make the majority feel ok w/me...I don't wanna be more like white people, I want Black people to get our sh*t together...so fukk Tiki & everthing he stands for....****!

First off..I have a BA in Journalism and a minor in African-American studies..I can speak french as a 2nd language..secondly I have no tattos and would be considered well-spoken, but I don't have to prove my intelligence to anyone...I don't have to go out of my way to state I don't speak "That African-American Diction"...Tiki has an elitist attitude and in is within my right to call him out on it, because I am entitled of my opinion..


i'll just flat out say it.....


TIKI IS A OREO AND HE'S PROUD OF IT

dude will learn when sh*t hits the fan and those same people he aspires to be turn his back on him.

i see what the threadstarter and author is saying. instead of saying I don't speak "slang", why say "African-American diction"...I'm black and educated, if I wanted to tell someone I speak well. Then I would say "I speak well"...not "I don't speak like all the other african americans". you're putting down your own people just so you can separate yourself.

but it is typical. most of yall just trying to sweep it under the rug, but Who would you rather have representing black people. tiki barber or 50 cent?
neither....neither one is a realistic representation of black people....we are a diverse group of people with a multitude of facets....one question?


Who represents White America?...really....why doesn't Jeffery Dahmer representive of whites....or Timothy McVeigh....or Eminem....or GW Bush....because white people can't be piegonholed into one catagory....so, why should we?

not all of us wake up wanting to be either a superthug or white.

Tiki is the man and yall nitpick his words. I GUARENTEE he is just as proud as being a successful African American man as any person on this message board.

You all need to take this stupid thread to the knowledge section or some sh*t.

memphis doesn't speak for the rest of the black american population. Not everybody is "ghetto, ignorant, dumb, and in love with shiny things" like the media portrays and it's a shame that you fall for it.

point blank...Tiki Barber took a shot at african americans...why didn't he say hispanics or some other race obviously he hates hisself if he publically degrades the black race. The only african americans that wouldn't take offense to this are those slave mentality, uncle tom, house "you know whats."

first running back ever with 1800 rushing and 500 receiving in a season

why are you acting so damn dumb? WE'RE TALKING ABOUT TIKI BARBER TALKING DOWN ABOUT BLACK PEOPLE. NOT BLACK PEOPLE AS A WHOLE, UNLIKE TIKI.

I got you on this man. Tiki is a bi*ch for saying something like that. fu*k tiki and the neighborhood he grew up in. I was born and raised in the suburbs with mostly white people just like him and I'm not going to say something so dumb.

Imagine if his coach or one of his white team mates said "Tiki is a cool guy, he doesn't use slang or talk with that typical black diction like most other black people." That would not be acceptable and neither is what he said about his own people.
