Shut ur Ignorant Ass Up.

I really felt the need to say this to someone today.

Why, when in the presence of people from other cultures, do some folks feel the need to try to use what little bit of language or cultural slang they know in everyday conversation? If you're not fluent, then you sound like a dumbass. It's that simple.

Case in point. I'm in a fast food resturant, and this lady in front of me in line is talking to a hispanic girl at the counter. So the lady decides to try to "communicate" with the girl behind the counter yelling out "MOOOCHAS GRAAAA-SHAAASS! ME WANT EL MAS FRIES GRANDE! SI!"

So I'm looking over at her like "What the fuck are you talking about?!?!", the woman behind me in line is laughing out loud, and the girl behind the counter is smiling biting her lower lip...trying not to either laugh in this lady's face, or slap the shit outta her ass.

The worst part about it is, the woman was black. She should have known better, since white folks do that to us all the time. I used to get irritated when a Carson Daily ass white person would come up to me talking about "What's up dawg?" or "What's happening brother!" in what amounts to either a weak attempt at sarcasm, or an even weaker attempt to prove that he/she is cool with black people. You'd think being black british would have stopped this woman from making an ass of herself like that...but it just goes to prove that ignorance and stereotypes know no color.

So if you get nothing else from this...Please don't go up to someone of another culture and try to talk like them, unless you are 100% sure that you are fluent in whatever language or dialect they speak. If not, stick to standard English to avoid looking like an asshole. Fuck the "Malibu's Most Wanted" fake ass rapper talk, fuck the "Miss Cleo" fake ass Carribean accents, and fuck all the fake ass "Spanglish" speaking motherfuckers who don't know what the hell they're talking about but think they are fluent cause they watched "Telemundo" last night. I can do without hearing that shit. Thanks.
