1. Guys wearing gay-ass tight jeans and fruity sneakers

OK so why I gotta stop saying "hate on" lol

But I can hang with you on all these... I love Vivica but if she doesn't stop soon she's going to start looking like MJ... I mean has she not seen how jacked up Lil Kim looks now

I havent even hit 30 yet and have come to the realization that #3 aint gonna happen

I cant give up Wendy's though

I think I'm going to give up the word "swag" because it's not a real word. The word "swagger" was in my vernacular before it became hot, so that one will stay.

Always have hated "conversate."

Definitely feel you on supporting black businesses. I'm going to go wherever I get the most for my money. Negroes need to step up their game if they want my patronage.

Gemini Girl aka GG said...

Why you gotta HATE ON Diddy???

RiPPa said...

40yr old Black men wearing braids: That shit is tired son!

shine said...

lol. this is too funny. especially 8-10! i could go on and on...

The True Urban Queen aka Sharon said...

Yes to grown men dressing like grown men.
Dress clothes and no braids and use a belt.

And I was on the bus not to long ago and there was this guy around thirty bragging he had been in prison for a few years and his life while in there. Like it was some badge of honor.

clnmike said...

Damn I wish I wrote this, lol.

Skoolboi Krush said...

Eb - Trust me! I know how hard it is to give up that fast food but we got to do it.

SBG - What's your definition of swagger?

GG - I know that is your boy but you know its true.

RiPPa - Exactly! I see these fools everyday looking crazy.

shine - Please go on!

Sharon - I can only hope that Obama will make a difference in these brothers self-image.

clnmike - Go ahead and write your list. I know I missed plenty of stuff.

What you mean by number 12"Women who don't "need" a man. You aren't fooling anybody" Well although I would love to be in a relationship with a guy I haven't found anyone suitable yet so If I've been getting along just find all this time then I guess I don't "need" one right?

Go b.

Marvalus said...

@ #2 - I always want to slap a big girl in shit that don't fit...or in shit that she know she shouldn't have on...respect your self girl, damn!

@ #8 - I happen to like my brown contacts thank you...

@ #12 - I've given this one up too...I'm tired of being "independent" but alone.

@ #19 - Leave Brett alone! j/k...his ass does need to sit down somewhere!

@ #23 - I'm right there with you, dude...

@ #35 - Bwahahahahahaha! You got that right!

@ #47 - I was in the book store last night looking for a good book and all I saw were these ghetto books...I don't want to read that crap! Where are the real authors at?!

@ #50 - What's wrong with being a nice guy?

Excellent list...

Skoolboi Krush said...

Go - I'm more talking about those chicks who are always proclaiming that they don't need a man. We all need each other.

Marvalus - I'm pledging to go to somebody's church once a month in 09.

CurvyGurl said...

Dang, I'm pretty good at #7...guess I'll have to ween myself off of it.

Merry Christmas!

I love #3. Folks swear being a parent completely defines who you are as a person. It is merely a facet of your personality.

I am a parent and I STILL am fly!!!

Love the list!!

BIG CED said...

#17 is absolutely THE BEST one you wrote!!!!!!

Becca the Promo Mami said...

this list is SPOT ON.... except i love guys in sneakers...

bad credit and ghetto literature are THE WORST!!!

if i see another little girl carrying around a copy of a book called "baby mama drama" or "thug love" or anything of the sort... i'm gonna FLIP OUT.

Skoolboi Krush said...

CurvyGurl - I'm horrible at it. That's why I need to stop.

Ieisha - Hey stranger! How are you doing?

Ced - I'm saying...I watch 'em but damn I wish something better was on. LOL

Becca - Nothing wrong with the sneakers just have something else in the closet too. I hate that its hard to find a good quality book on the shelves with all that junk.
