this is AG i had to drop my 2 cents...

first off Bill Cosby said
they spend 500 dollars on shoes and not on hooked on phonics

well i dont think he is talking about being poor,
i lived in the ghetto and yes many people to speak slang and majority of my family speaks spanish most black ppl in the ghetto spoke slang and most white ppl speak like hicks

but what i think he is talking about is

now i got to a better school where rich kids go and u know what i see i see wanna be blacks with there jordans and there jerseys comeing up to me saying "ayo nigga dogg holla atcha boi we gon party fa sho tonight holla" and there white and mexican kids who come from good familys trying to be gangsters and "ballas" because they want to be cool but really they look like asses i bet if i went to my old hood talked like that to my family ill get the shit knocked out of me. kids do it like seer said to fit in i think we should do what dave chappelle did get the white kids that try to act like there from the streets and put them in with sum real black gangstas and see how long they last... and not just white kids mexicans as well and as well as any other race

but no matter what u should be proud of where u came from and ur race because mexicans have came up to me called me a "nigga" and i told them they better not calll me that again or ill beat the shit out of them and they didnt...
the only time i use that word is when im high or playing around

just my 2 cents go ahead and ban me seer....

-signing out AG the tru nigga from da streetz who is fa sho wid it numsayin?

^ well, since Cosby specifically said BLACK kids, and you're specifically talking about WHITE and LATINO kids, .... I don't think that's what he's talking about at all; nope, think you missed the mark.  Goodbye.

Cosby is 100% right...My high school was 50% Black. The black dudes I hung around with had small part time jobs and all they would spend there money on were the hottest shoes out or jeans. They would literally sit there and have hour talks about what the hottest shoes out are and what rappers are wearing what in the videos.

I have to drop 2 cents in too. Who lives in South Central Los Angeles... my bad... South Los Angeles, Compton, and many other "ghetto" communities in the L.A. area... guess what, mainly Mexicans. Don't act like there isn't a grip of ghetto Latino youth. In New York they got Puerto Ricans. Now I have no clue where you are from, but if you stick anybody not "ghetto" in the ghetto, then they'll be scared shitless. I know of other black people that wouldn't go to the ghetto, and yet they act like they hood. People in the hood will punk you if your fake, no matter the race.

Also, as I said again, if we are talking language problems in race, we can only talk about our own. Whites need to get rid of that hick talk I hear when I'm in southern states, and in Minnesota, they need to learn how to pronounce words. It's not a ruff, it's a roof, they even misspell words here, like it's not Quick Trip, it's Kwik Trip, bad grammar is everywhere, amoung every race. I can't talk about any other race though, because look at Latinos, we have the worst English of all, because we don't even speak complete English, but Spanglish.

yeah i agree with u

and its funny cuzz i live in Texas and its about 75% mexicans 15%white people and 10%black people

everone thinks alot of white hillbillys live here becuase like u see in movies its bullshit its not all ranches and horses n shit but some citys do have just plain white people and they all talk hick but when you come here to Corpus and live on the South (the good side) u wont see any whites talk hick but if u go to the ghetto WEst and North u see whites talk like the movies and most of them are raceist its funny...

maybe he was referring to blacks because he was presenting his speech during the 50th anniversary of brown versus board of education...
