|This site was created by me for me and about me. i named this site Hip Hop n Oxygen because i love those two things and i think they go great together. there is a common misconception that hip hop and rap music are the same thing. people saying they hate rap music generally do hate rap music, but have not heard of Hip Hop. and those who say they hate that gangster rap music and point thier finger at an artist like Mos Def are simply branding themselves as staggeringly ignorant about the issues with which they concern themselves. i am a black man, and therefore i am concerned greatly with the issues concerning the black community, with the exception of jibberish like halle berry's hairstyle or "da shoes dood was wearin in dat new fiddy'cent video".
all of that being said. when black people get mad at me (usually at work), they brand me as a sellout saying that i wanna-be-white. ive gotten that at any job ive ever had. even without black people being mad they would see me working and talk to me and then say i was a token black guy. im a literate and articulate black man and its starting to really make me want to commit homocide when i get called sell-out or wanna-be-white. i wonder if they ever called Cornel West a sellout. im also getting annoyed with the idea of ebonics. its not a language, its slang. there are no books written in ebonics, its not even the same in two halfs of the state. its a bunch of terms that pertain exactly to certain events in a specific region that get passed along through music and popular media. please stop insulting the black people with this ebonics crap. the whole purpose of slang is to prohibit the have's from understanding the have-not's events and happenings.

Very well written!
lol thanks for backing my ebonics comment (despite the lack of understanding I recieved in class... ebonics is NOT a language and did not come to America from the slaves who were brought over... regardless of what certain professors might teach)!!

never a truer word uttered timm - kudos!!!
i saw a documentary a few months ago on bbc where a very well paid, educated, responsible black man was ridiculed by his peers simply because he was willing to 'integrate'. because he defied the stereotypes he was expected to fulfill - that blight the black youth of today. im in the same situation. i'm now a successful professional in my own right, own my own car, live in a big home and get on with my life as 'i' see fit - yet when it comes to sitting down with 'da bra', im labelled as a sellout, a dutty wannabe who has no time for his roots or his people. its a constant battle, as im sure you know. david matthews (bbc) got it right when he said that the true role-models in our community are not souless fools like 10-bob - or 50 cent to you guys :), top athletes or will smith, but those lesser recognised 'regular' individuals who pull themselves up beyond the stereotypes the largely racist media likes to label them with and get on with their lives, pushing on in other areas of life however small the difference they make is.
if you take this argument to its natural conclusion you will see that most of the people who actually enforce negative stereotypical behaviour and believe that that tim-toting, bling-wearing, rim-spinning way of life they like to promote is acceptable are indeed the sellouts themselves, and im sure you've probably been at least half a breath away from telling them that in the past!
bottom line, you're the one whos "keeping it real". and long may you, i and all other brothers and sisters who want to progress rather than stagnate and regress keep doing so!

heh, your rant absolutely sounded better than mine. probably because of the various enraged U.K. style slang. but rest assured, your rant sounded better.
