    Kind of because my thread is about white people in my year using slang when they didn't grow up in London.
    But why the **** does that matter at all? Are they causing problems for society by speaking the way they do? Or they troubling you personally? If not, then why go on about it? Do you not have anything better to discuss?

    I hate it when people say 'black culture' like we all act the same or are even from the same place to have the same culture. Stupid.
    I see nothing wrong with what you've described OP back in the day everyone used to try to be English, what's the prob.
    It's just the same as saying chinese culture but we know that not all chinese people eat dogs. :/

    And I'm talking about Britain. Black Americans and Black British people have different kinds of music. You won't find Americans listening to Grime.

    When did I say hip hop culture is just black culture? Lmao don't put words into my mouth.
    ''Why are people so obsessed with black people and black culture?''

    Which black culture? It's not one thing, is it? There are many different black cultures, wow.... And then on top of that, with black culture you refer to hip hop/slang culture.

    Whats wrong OP, can't you take someone calling you out on your blatent racism and ignorance? If asking 'why dont some black women keep their real hair' is horrible then I guess I am guilty. However it isnt horrible, is it?
    You are so clever OP, in one great swoop you have revealed my hatred for my whole family and many of my friends. This is sarcasm, in case you didnt understand. Just before I leave let me say one thing OP. I pity you. I pity you in all your ignorance and racism. I suggest you sort your head out and think about what you are saying before you criticise others.
    Lol, someone obviously needs to jam their hype.

    Why are you still posting in my thread because you obviously have no idea what the purpose of it is.

    I think the reason is simple. The OP is racist. However she is not just racist, she is ignorant as well.

    I never once said all black women have fake hair. I said a lot, something which can't be denied. And yes i agree, many women do wear hair extensions, but thats not what we are discussing now is it? My conclusion is pitiful now is it. Well thats great isnt it. I don't deny that there are women with their own hair, but if you look in popular culture, you will have a long look before you find a black woman with her own hair. I know the difference between real and fake hair, and just because someone goes and buys a wig made from 'real human hair' doesnt make it their hair. Real hair grows from your scalp, and there is nothing wrong with it.

    arent haair extensions a form of fake hair?...So you agree that many women wear fake hair, regardless of their color?.....This can be inferred from your statement...isnt it?. :innocent:

    Err when did eating dogs come into this? I don't see that as being part of chinese culture and chinese people come from china one place its not the same.
    I'm not stupid I know what you're talking about but as a black british person I can tell you that although some black people do some things the same, I as a someone of caribbean descent have a different culture to my african friend, even though we are both british. When I was at school the Africans and Caribbean's acted differently. Hardly a 'black culture'. Again I fail to see why you are so bothered about how people act or what sub culture they choose to play into.

    So, is it about being black or about growing up in London? Those are two very different things.

    The attachment of a particular culture to a group centred around skin colour seems rather offensive in itself when black people originate and live in various parts of the world with their own unique cultures. I accept that globalisation has homogenised things to an extent so the differences between these various groups in various nations are not as great as they may have once been but the social and cultural experiences of a young black man in, for example, Britain are likely to be very different to those of a young black man in Nigeria.

    While certain traits and tastes may dominate in certain ethnic groups as a consequence of socialisation and maybe self-fulfilling prophecies, culture in itself is often a very nice way of transcending boundaries such as ethnicity. For example, I am a white person who enjoys hip-hop, largely made by African-Americans but with notable exceptions. Similarly, I have black friends who do not share my taste in hip-hop and prefer guitar-based music mainly involving white bands from Great Britain.

    Although 'blackness' and the related concept of Afrocentricity are common themes used by some of the hip-hop acts I am interested in such as Brand Nubian and Digable Planets, it is not these things that draw me or anyone to the music - ultimately, the skin colour of the artists involved is irrelevant to me. Part of living in the postmodern world, particularly in a multicultural country like Britain, is embracing our differences and adopting tastes and trends that transcend traditional distinguishing lines of skin colour or ethnic origin. Therefore, I think it is important to make a distinction between black people and 'black' culture.
