It's who they are. You think white kids raised in the ghettos come out sounding like they just graduated from Cambridge? No, they're going to sound just like the black dudes, and everybody else, around them. Just like how black dudes who grow up in nice parts of town (suburbs, etc) don't sound "gangster" or don't use "ebonics", they sound like normal folks. Yet, to some black people, that's "abandoning their race".

thats very true

I grew up around a handful of whites before we moved to the suburbs... and they spoke like everyone else... they had the same mannerisms as everyone else in the neighborhood..

and they werent acting
