If I were to wash my jeans by soaking with detergent in a bucket, will they shrink? Ive been reading that if I were to machine wash they would shrink too much smh. That would be a waste of $. Im thinking about standing in my shower to soak them so I can stretch em out more. Could it work?

Pregnant Parking Lot Fight in Oakland

I somewhat get annoyed by the amount of people who always provide those "double standard" arguments like "Whites get violent too but we never generalize them." Youre right, and here is why, it is very simple-they have the financial status and ARE NOT the minority amongst North American society. Blacks are about 10-20% of the population with the majority living in bad areas therefore making a GOOD MAJORITY of them uncivilized and "GHETTO". This is why we can generalize them based off of 1 incident because it is CONSTANT. It is OBVIOUS. I live in a bad area myself and went to a half-ghetto school and constantly observed this type of ghetto-loud behavior on an almost daily basis. It has alot to do with financial status and your upbringing. Then again I may be wrong, we must have a difference of opinion. Im half Jamaican and I admit I hate these ghetto blacks that constantly condone this type of image, but what can we do eh? The same argument could be presented towards the use of the word ✖✖✖✖✖✖. I hate when people say "WHY IS IT OK FOR BLACKS TO SAY THAT WORD, BUT WHEN A WHITE PERSONS SAY IT, HES RACIST?" Simple, us blacks have lived through decades of depression coupled with the fact that we are the poorest minority on the planet. It carries a different social weight. That is why we kind-of have that ability to do so. Correct me if im wrong?

Ive had over 4-5 nudie jeans the past year and took the sitching off every single one. I prefer a subtle look. Why would I want to advertise for a company anyways. Only thing I hate about my conny is the logo on the back, if i take it off it will look damn retarded.

[Quote] so then I was right. If a dude is really tall and his knee starts just below the "Knee cut" then it would look awkward no? Lets go to an extreme and say a dude is 12 feet. He wants a pair of regular alfs that are 34 inseam. WHen he puts it on, his knee goes to the bottom part of the alf where the bell bottom portion is and the KNEE part is on his thigh. Unless the "knee-cut" is WIDE to accommodate people of all heights from 5 feet to 6 since your avg human is no taller than 7" which is what I assume. Ah whatever im making it too confusing, Ill take your word for it. Regardless Ill still try my best to find 30" inseams

HMm I read an interesting post today. Lets say Im a short dood and buy a pair of jeans with 34 Inseam, technically doesnt the KNEE start a bit lower than a pair of 30 inseam jeans? I just realzed this cause I have a pair of 28x34 SJDBC and for some reason I hate the fit. THen I read that post today and thought to myself. Does it really matter? Alot of people just say cut off the excess, but if the knee starts a bit lower than your actual knee height, wont that cause unwanted straining leading to a crotch rip? Should I buy a pair of 30 inch inseam jeans from now on?

I think you misinterpreted what I said, or maybe I worded it wrongly. YES there are some black people that dont act "ghetto" (including myself) and yes there are probably tons of blacks that DONT like fried chicken, but GENERALLY SPEAKING do we? Yes. Black women have very bad attitudes and Ive seen it time and time again. Do ALL black women have snappy attitudes? NO. But do a good majority? YES. Im not trying to push it on us or condone our actions, but its the truth. Stereotypes are made for a reason. Because they are based off of repeated actions from a specific group. Asian people suck at driving? Indian people stinking (Russell Peters) Secondly I never referred to the colour of our skin, but the way we dress and our personality traits and the way we present ourselves. If I see a black guy dressed in baggy clothing with a mean look on his face, am I gonna assume hes ghetto due to the fact that is is what the general stereotype or image is associated with? If I see a black or white guy dressed in a suit with a nice look on his face, am I gonna assume hes well mannered and NOT ghetto,? Yes. Sometimes looks can be decieving though. In regards to being offended if a white person said I was ghetto due to the COLOR of my skin, would I be offended? Yes. Would I make a big deal about it? Nope. He probably wouldnt assume I was ghetto based on the way I dress and present myself. Its the way the world is. [Quote]

Yes that is why they are CREATED in the first place. Yes we as blacks LOVE fried chicken. We ARE ghetto as hell. I dont get why some people say that stereotyping is "racist" or act like its something that is wrong. WE ALL DO. Its based off of the same happenings time and time again. As a black man I can say that black people being ghetto is absolutely true, and do I like it? NO. Look at rap videos, go to worldstar and check their vids.

Taking a course in organizational behaviour, I learned that we stereotype to make sense of the world. WE ALL DO. Its generally based off of obvious observations from repeated incidents no? Growing up in my neighborhood and going to a pretty ghetto high school, its safe to say that alot of black men are out of line these days trying to act hard. They are loud rowdy and disrepectful. It generally stems from "ghetto". Ive noticed this all through my life witnessing the things that I did. A gay person walks by and what do the ghetto black dudes say? Well you dont have to answer that. Middle-upper class white people that act cordial and well mannered are considered to be "acting white" because that is the general observation. Now of course you could say that white people act "ghetto"(which they do ive seen it alot), but this type of behaviour pretty much stemmed from black people. A GOOD MAJORITY of blacks act "ghetto" There is no denying it. Its probably due to the fact that we as a race are amongst the poorest and have had to endure alot of hardship throughout our generations. White people can act ghetto too, but due to their statistics and overall history, the amount of these "ghetto" people are very small. [Quote]

1 thing you forgot to mention is conditioning. Look at the media and music videos. Everyone regardless of race is exposed to this shit to the point where they generally favour white women. Its unfortunate, but its the way it is. How many times do you see black women that ARENT light skinned portrayed attractively in movies? [Quote]
