you know what legit bugs me foxhole?
“yo whats up dog?”
whats up with you?”
“yo yo yo…
whats happening with you kid?”
…”hood talk” coming from those trying to be down.
i’m talking about white folks.
it’s rampant with the older ones who don’t realize how ignorant they sound.
now i’m not trying to sound prejudice,
but read me out…
so this older snow wolf,
who comes into my office periodically,
always speaks to me like that.
it’s like he feels he has to speak to me in my language to relate to me.
he comes at me like we grew up in the hood together,
but he knows he would go anywhere certain lines on the mta.
my new yawk foxhole know what i’m fontin’ about.
the other day he comes in the office and he sees me,
the first thing he is gonna say:
is that you smelling so good in here dog?”
i looked at him like:
another time back,
he was shocked when he heard me listening to the backstreet boys.
listen i had “show me the meaning of being lonely” on repeat.
i am very diverse in my music,
as you already know.
he legit “‘gon said”:
“you know what i was listening to the other day?
in all honesty,
it comes off fake and try hard.
i don’t like it.
it makes me nauseous.
i like white folks being white.
i don’t need you to adapt “hood talk”.
it is insulting to think we all talk like that.
bad enough when i see blacks switch up at work.
you at my desk talking “hood”,
but as soon as someone white comes around,
the voice goes a few octaves higher:
how are you girl!”
i’m side eyeing this one sista in my office.
i don’t get it.
i’ve been seeing this a lot in corporate america.
it’s very strange.
i don’t change with anyone.
what you see is what you get with me.
i guess i’m more comfortable?
