In the past month, Lewis has claimed that Kaepernick went unsigned to a team because of a tweet his girlfriend posted.

Twitta, please.

They should. He's a f*cking horrible human being.

Black Twitter is Sammy Davis Jr tribute band.

And they should because when Trump stuck his stupid big head into the matter, the NFL co-opted the protest making it about themselves.

Jerry Jones didn't kneel to protest racial inequities in this country.

Black Twitter is like regular Twitter but with worse credit.

Did you think he would? Or that any owner is infused with a sense of liberalism all of a sudden?

He knelt because nobody's (especially Trump) gonna tell Jerry Jones what to do. There's no epiphany here.

This is Shannon Sharpe on whatever show he is on with Skip Bayless.

The first 7 minutes are his opinions. Ray Lewis is one of the people he called out.

Black Twitter is simply tweets written by black people. It's not like we have our own special section of Twitter that's just for us.

Of course black folks are up in arms with Ray farking Lewis, that farking clown.  He's a hypocrite in the worst freaking way and gets way too much press for basically NOTHING.  He chastised Kaepernick, and Shannon Sharpe went right after him, for good reason.:

http://www.bet.com/news/sports/2017/08/01/shannon-sharpe-slams-ray-le​w​is-over-police-brutality.html

And then Sharpe ate him up for kneeling, when it suited Ray Lewis....

New found respect for Shannon Sharpe. I usually stay away from the yelling sports shows so my experience with him was when he was on the CBS NFL show and he seemed like just another clown.

Nothing is more annoying than stories that include something along the lines...

"the internet responds..."
"Twitter responds..."
"Black Twitter responds..."

Note that a subset of people does not = all.

Under the law we're theoretically equal, but in practice we're not. And no one's pretending that color and race (and let's throw culture in there, too) don't matter.

As a white guy who follows a few people, I can see the reason's obviously the same as any forum on the internet, or any in-real-life community. Kick ideas around, try to make sense of the world. Entertain each other. Try to keep from going insane. Educate those who are curious, but don't have first-hand experience driving/shopping/walking down the street/job hunting/trying to rent or buy a house while black.

brizzle365: Is the grammar better or worse on black twitter?


I don't follow *all* black twitter, no one can. But since I'm attracted to thoughtful, brainy people and their thoughts, in my experience the grammar's exactly as good as white twitter.

But digging a little deeper with your question, you'll eventually come to the subject of "code switching", which as someone who's never been asked to do it, I find to be a fascinating subject.

Interesting, I never knew it had an actual term.

I live in a very diverse part of the US, lots of people with different languages.  I have run into Spanglish, Engrish etc etc, even while gaming i ran into Singlish lol. Ive found it curious, the people who do this in thought as well, has to be very complicated.

CSB:

Years ago I worked in a retail car audio shop and we had a ton of different people come in, a lot of the hispanic people would be more comfortable speaking with someone in their own language, even if they spoke english.  I myself found that I had to use different ways of speaking with Professional business types vs the kids who just wanted bang in the trunk. I do find it easier to understand more of the european accents than i do asian. Hispanic is mostly easy for me as ive been around it long enough. Cant speak it for shiate mostly, except how to insult someones mother, order beers and find my pants...all things everyone should know how to say!

I catch myself still now, alternating between slang and professional speak because of my job and the people I hang around while not at the job.

It's legit. The same areas of the brain that are used when switching between say, English and Spanish, are used when POC talk to white people vs talking to other POC of similar cultural backgrounds. And I agree with phaselous, it's entirely fascinating.
