    Check out this video about gangs in the South Bronx in the 1970s... These people actually speak fairly proper English!

    These days I need a translator. What happened!?

    When rap became less about dance battles and more about the drug trade.

    Agreed. I think in the late 80s/early 90s there was a cultural shift where being ignorant and unrestrained was encouraged. The thug culture was popularized and was quickly normalized.

    I remember seeing black friends and peers (many who came from intact nuclear families with educated, working parents) acclimate themselves to the new trend over a summer. When I was around 12-13, my friend Derek went from being this polite, friendly good student in June to this pretend "gangsta" who'd ditch class and shoot dice in September. His older brother and cousin did the same exact thing. It was this immediate shift in behavior and it seemingly came from nowhere.

    I worked at King Kullen (a NY supermarket) when I was a senior and I worked with that friend's cousin, Elory (who was now "Little E".) Derek used to come hang out when "Little E" was supposed to be working and they'd do their own raps where they talked about living in the projects and shooting gats. The funny thing is that Derek lived two houses down from me and his house was nicer than mine. His mom drove a Subaru! :jj:

    Black folks is hilarious!

    Oakland is where the term "ebonics" came from. Because the black kids were failing English. Total bullshit.
    You little homie fucks hear proper English daily on TV.

    It was a plot by the Jewish media to keep the black man down and make them look stupid.

    ...i did a couple sizeable jobs in oakland that were going on thru the big oakland berkely hills fire. oakland is made up mostly of black folks and being californians all they saw ebonics as a source of cultural pride. its probably best it didnt pass cause i think it would have driven a deeper wedge between the population. there are whites and latinos and asians in oakland too, and some really rough parts of town. i lived in richmond just up the road, trainning grounds for gangstahs.
