I overheard the following conversation a while ago, between two black people:
"Hey, where you been, man?"
"I've was doing laps at the pool all morning"
" ***** YOU WHITE"

I have to say, that's the first time I've ever heard anybody say " ***** you white" to anybody.

***** isn't "black" it's a form of endearment, i.e. comrade, bro, dude, pal, or it can be used for guys. Men are ****** and women are bitches. You know what I'm saying my ***** ? Get educated, it might save your life one day if you happen to cross a Tyronesaurex Rex

So, what, you can make a normal name black by adding De, Ja, or La to it?

If Litrelle ever did porn her name should be Litrelle Latrine.

Black people can't swim because most of them come from the inner city..... Do you think they go hang out at DeKendrix's house and swim in the pool? No, they sit in his apartment or hang out on the stoop. None of them know how to swim because none of them can go anywhere to learn how. Us whiteys live in the suburbs and have pools and beaches and **** . There are exceptions, but that's the case 99% of the time.

I live in Louisiana. When I was 15, I took a course to get certified in lifeguarding. We had to complete a prerequisite test of swimming 800 yds (or something, I don't really remember; this was like 4 years ago) and there were three hulking black guys there. When the instructor told us all to get in the pool to take the test, they got in and walked towards the deep end, then got scolded for walking, so they got out and left. Why? They couldn't swim, and didn't realize they needed to be able to swim to become a lifeguard. It's **** like this that makes everyone think they're all retards.

How black people name their kids

* make bowl of alphabet soup
* scoop out 2 spoonfuls
* arrange in a line
BAM, theres their kids name
#64 to #5 - tomabinladen (07/28/2013) [-]
They do that, then add "De", "Ja", or "La" to the beginning of it.
User avatar #9 to #5 - satrenkotheone (07/27/2013) [-]
That's implying they know what the letters mean.
User avatar #18 to #9 - honditar (07/28/2013) [-]
And implying they can afford alphabet soup

I've been surfing funnyjunk for quite some time now, and this content has made me laugh harder than I have laughed at anything on this site for a long time...

and then I read this comment and I damn near broke my desk from laughing so hard.

Thanks.

Glad to help.

Are we going to ignore the fact that there's "love" in this alphabet soup?

Yes, yes we are..

Is it bad that I didn't expect the names to be any less ghetto than they are?

Don't ask them to go on a cruise.   
They aren't falling for that again.

**robertelee rolled a random image posted in comment #5428328 at Furries **
they got confused trying to call out each others names

i mean really when the most normal name is jamarcus what the hell were these kids parents thinking
#154 to #150 - jacksipian (07/28/2013) [-]
the one they all tried to save lived and everyone else died, seems a bit suspicious that he would be the only one to survive
