    "[A] new report, based on interviews with young people across Britain, suggests that more and more white youths now see black street culture as their only credible influence in the UK. And, what's more, the predominance of black culture has even led to the formation of a fledgling hybrid language - 'Blinglish'."

    "wiggers" and "Blinglish"? *smh* Don't white people have anything better to do than continue to patronize, mimic and put a negative spin on everything Black people do? First Elvis, then the Beatles and now . . . Justin Timberlake? How sad...could this be the worst form of racism? White people do it and it eventually becomes a part of mainstream society and works to the advangtage of white people. Black people do it and they are depicted as uncivilized heathens that need to be punished, put down and ostracized.

    When people talk about "Black culture" what are they really saying?

    To many people imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. However I don't think that applies in this case. I feel that Hip Hop has lost its path as an innovative form of black culture & expression: Much like Jazz, Blues, Rock & Roll, and Disco. It is time for us to move on to something else.
