Because whitey neeever says uh/um/like/y'know when they're talking. Not at all. Never.

Right, I mean look and listen to all them funny sounds them dark people make when speaking. Since it isn't like to our speak, it must be inferior.
*Slaps Kunta Kantwork upside the head.*
Right, as whites are always more articulate than other races and never resort to repeating words over and over again to express themselves.

Have you ever actually talked to a black person? I have black friends in my AP english class.
3/7/2010 6:14:46 PM
Really? 'Cuz I've been going to school with fellow caucasians my whole life and have heard plenty of oral reports and casual conversations filled with "um"s and "uh"s. I myself use them sometimes and I was an honor student. Same with "mmmhmmm"s, "y'know"s and "eh?"s.
I invite you to consider the fact that most actors in film and television went to universities and college, including black actors. Kinda implies that they're not complete idiots, are quite literate (having to read scripts and all), have excellent memories and are articulate enough to give convincing performances. And that's just one example that proves your "whites > blacks" theory is complete bullshit.

A good friend of mine, Haroun a Tanzanian national has recently acquired his PHD in TESOL and a post in a university in his home town of Zanzibar. Whom do you think has the higher vocabulary Kunta, you or he?
3/7/2010 6:52:10 PM
It's been done already, but I can't think of any other way to respond to this retarded mess so here goes.
"Ha hah. Niggurs don't talk gud like wite mens do."
Also every black person i've ever met would call Kunta a "motherfucker." Not muddafuggah. Motherfucker. As in you have sexual intercourse with your own mother.

So...why is Obama known for being a good speaker and Bush known for, as well as his litany of political fuckery, mangling language?

Somebody nuke that forum.
3/7/2010 11:05:54 PM
this may be a bit of a conjecture, but I actually kinda smell a Poe. "Kunta Kantwork" sounds suspiciously like "Kunt Kant work", but it may be a stretch to call poe.
3/7/2010 11:30:12 PM
Hahaha, that's the most racist thing I've ever come across!
@dingo: It's a play on the name of the main character in "Roots": "Kunta Kinte" so yes, it's intentionally supposed to sound like "can't work". Don't think it's a Poe though, just a really, really racist person...

The funniest thing about this is how thought out it is. The poster has gone so far as to talk about "gap filler" words etc.
Just a shame he has come up with a theory then obviously worked quite hard to shoehorn evidence into it.
Get back in yer box muddafugga.

Which "niggers" would you be talking about?
Clearly not any that exist outside your own cartoon fantasy.

Man Called True
Strange, then, that I (a white guy) have received praise for my vocabulary, and yet frequently have to declare "Let me get my words" when I'm talking to someone.
The need for gap-fillers is often a sign of higher intelligence, as it happens - the brain works too fast for the mouth to keep up, so you have to "reset" your speech to get the two in sync again.
You, on the other hand, probably had to have your more literate neighbor type that drivel for you.

In the meanwhile, I will keep on communicating with my Namibian friends. They speak English, last time I checked.

Idiot, human speech is never perfect except in films and TV shows, look at any average conversation, from NORMAL people and you'd recognise a thousand different 'stalls'.
3/9/2010 3:15:22 AM
Have you ever talked to someone from the South? They talk so slow and use a lot of um's & er's, so they must be wasting time so they can think up the next word.
And 600 words is far more than most people in the backwoods ever learn. 'Course they ain't got no use for book learnin'.
3/9/2010 7:50:49 AM
Still these so-twisted-a-circus -contortionist-would-be-proud-of-it arguments about why black people are less intelligent than white people despite all evidence to the contrary. Your president is an Ivy League educated lawyer. He is also black. The most high profile person in America refutes your point, and he is only one of many. Continuing to belabour such a ridiculous point only serves to indicate the lack of intelligence of the person who is talking such bollocks.
3/9/2010 10:22:05 AM
If you think blacks only talk like this, you really should pay attention to political debates.
This guy/girl sounds like he got most of his theories from television shows and other close-minded individuals. He'd probably shit bricks if a black person was to ever talk to this douchebag

Mark Twain was known as a slow talker.
I'm sorry, did you have a point worth my time.
3/9/2010 9:22:15 PM
I am a stutterer. I am white.
Your argument is invalid
3/10/2010 11:15:29 AM
I'm amused by the tautological explanation of tautological.
3/10/2010 10:54:19 PM
That's like, uh, so totally not like how it works and stuff and maybe you should like, um, just like shut up or whatever. Like totally.
