121. Well, why stop at music and clothes?
Edited on Wed Mar-30-05 07:50 AM by rocknation
Black people who do NOT use urban slang sound ridiculous.

Back people who wear business suits look ridiculous.

White people who marry non-white people are being ridiculous.

Non-white people who aspire to white-collar rather thank blue-collar careers are being ridiculous.

Black people who shop at places like Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstroms are being ridiculous.

Black people who go to college are being ridiculous. They should settle for being high school dropouts like everybody else.

Moran.
