I wonder how many times Omara will repeat the word, "Homie," as something said by T. Martin

"Homie?" What is this, Boyz In The Hood?

Who was Trayvon supposed to be, a pre-family friendly Ice Cube?

I'm surprised that Z didn't depict Martin as some who was about to "pop a cap in his ass" and "smash him upside his head with that 'forty' in my pocket."

I doubt, if "that crazy lookin' nigguh" or "creepy-assed cracka" will be used by Omara, because if the Z Team had kept up with the proper euphemisms associated with modern day "ghetto" youth... Like the one depicted below, then it wouldn't sound so freakishly cartoonish coming out of the mouths of these people. It's not 1985 anymore, my "homies."



Let's have a "homie" count, shall we?

3. Ahhh MrScorpio as usual brings up an awesome point!

And you are correct - it's like it's 1985 all over again!

My nephews are not 'ghetto youth' . .. but they are young black men in North West NJ. I'd die if I ever heard that out of their mouths. I do hear 'dude' from them alot though.

That's my 42 year old brother's language. And actually - I think it was 'homes'. Only homey I know was Homey the Clown.

Hell - Zimmerman should have gone back to my dad's era! :chuck: If he were alive - he would be turning 72 this month - and his language for a 'dude' was 'cat'.

And sure as shit - no one used 'homes' or 'homey' with a stranger in the late 1980's.

6. For The Record, Sir, Just Went And Interrupted A Teen-Aged Grand-Son

When he looked away from the game on the screen, he said he had never heard anyone say 'homey', and asked me what it meant....
