What is talking black?
Okay, So I'm (as you may be able to tell) partially African American but I'm so dark you wouldn't be able to tell that I'm mixed. Whenever I talk around a stranger or someone that I've just met, I'm constantly told that I don't talk black or that I talk really proper, as if they're surprised that I sound educated. I mean I get that there are extremely ghetto people and all, but I didn't realize that the way they talk is subjected to just one race. I mean as far as I'm concerned, there are two types of speech. Educated and uneducated. Not saying that people who use slang are stupid, but that it gives less of an educated feel. I know that sounded really stupid but what do you think?
