It’s no secret that black folks speak another language than the rest of the world. We misappropriate English language in order to communicate with each other while confusing those listening in. It’s how we keep our culture (which is routinely attacked and mocked) sacred.
It’s hilarious to see when other folks try to gain clarity and understanding of our communication style because as soon as they learn, we’ve updated the slang and changed our handshake and these folks are left on the side looking silly. And by the time one does catch the current wave of our culture, they’ll find they’ve compromised their own in the process of chasing the ‘Black Whale’.
Here’s some old ass slang!
And a classic!
