I was just wondering- why do people NEED to speak like afro-americans? You know what I am talking about. Saying shit like: \"Yo friends are wit me...\" and stuff. I just never understood why there is a \"cool\" way to talk. And saying it is one thing... why do you have to type it too? Everyone uses little words that they get from peer groups and shit. I talk in a peer dialect as much as anyone when I\'m with my friends but when I\'m not with them or when I am just talking on the internet I gain the ability to write properly- with the exception of abreviations of longer words.
