Whats up homegirl? Whats up my brutha! Word to ya motha!
This is the crap I have to hear..
I hate when people speak to me using slang.. especially when I’m working or conducting business.
Just cause I’m black doesn’t mean I speak in such a way.
Now when I’m with my family or close friends we have a certain why that we speak and converse with each other, but
…you don’t know me!..
(I laughed a little bit when I wrote that)
Throughout working in corporate America, I’ve heard some crazy slang, stupid assumption, and gestures.
I’m even skeptical about eating chicken at work because people look at you crazy.
I’ve heard ” ohhh this printer is sooo ratchet!”
“whats up my homie from another rommie” (yeah hella stupid” )
Most of the time i just laugh because it sounds so stupid, then I say, ” I’m sorry, I can’t comprehend what you’ve just said, come again?”
Just because I’m black.. doesn’t mean I speak fluent slang.
