    Lol are you being serious?

    I lived in SW London full of "ghetto girls" and they all had different accents.

    There is no such thing as a "black girl" accent.:rofl:

    The accent you're talking about I've heard called a south-London patois.

    Personally I've been told that I have a "BBC accent" (through no fault of my own), but whatever you are you must 2nd generation+ because nobody with African/Carrib parents or grandparents would talk so disrespectfully.
    I'm first generation, born in Africa.

    The accent I'm talking about is actually common in second generation kids.

    By you call me disrespectful, some call me a coconut and others a snob.

    Doesn't matter what label you give me. My views wil remain the same.

    I moved to London and have overheard many white and Asian girls with identical accents to the one you speak of.

    Ever sat next to an African with a blackberry on the bus, or better yet a bus full of them? Yikes. All accents can be annoying especially to those of us who didn't grow up in that particular area/culture.

    With all due respect, I have never heard this accent outside of London

    Then again, I've never really seen black people outside of London. The rest of the country really just falls into the average chav accent, or some other scouse/geordie dialect I can't stand

    Well I have. I am outside of London and hear it all the time. Is someone saying only Londoners speak patois?
