For those of you aspies who are african american, (I'm sure there's not that many.) Do you listen to rap/hip-hop? I hate "gangsta" rap. I feel that it is degrading the african american name. Do you guys like rock? Do you guys speak the "ghetto" lingo like your everyday NTs? Have you ever been insulted by your peers because you aren't 'black' enough?

It sort of annoys me to hear everyone around me whine about me being too white.

I'm just curious, I don't mean to insult anyone.

I know there are a couple Black guys who post on here, I've seen their avatars. I'm glad you don't speak ghetto slang. I think it sounds ignorant and uneducated...same as the white hicks who I hear speaking redneck slang. Also...I don't like gangsta rap either, but I like some old school stuff. (I'm white, BTW, but some clients at my company are African-American.)

I'm half black half white and I don't listen to that stuff. My brother does. Doubt that helps though.

The people in the south have country accents because they started to talk a lot slower (or thought they had to) during the slavery years for their black slaves to understand. This started to be picked up by everybody in the community and continues to this day. This is not a joke by the way. Think about it.

I'm also an African American with Asperger Syndrome. My mother supported me ever since I got diagnosed around my first year of high school. (She's also a member of the Autism Society of America) I'm now at taking university courses at the University of MD.

I used to listen a lot of hip-hop music when I'm young. But by the time I entered university I have already grew out of that rut. I don't speak African American Vernacular English. I have more interests other than hip-hop, sex, and gangsta rap (which is becoming more degenerate by the month). Most obviously I'm an anime fan (read:otaku) and amateur digital photographer.

I guess I would be considered "black" by others judging only my appearace, but I don't consider myself black. I am biracial.

I don't really listen to any rap music or hip-hip or R&B. I don't act, talk, or dress "black" in any way.

I have been harassed tremendously by my black peers and even some of my white peers because I act too "white." And it is really annoying and frustrating! :x

I'm Black, and listen to all sorts of music, the majority being Indie or Underground Hip-Hop (not mainstream garbage). I want to get tested, but my parents both have been ultra-religious, and I'm like begging my dad to get me tested. Any black Christian Aspies? I find that to be an oxymoron, ha.

No racial jokes??? I was going to post one, just to be snarky, but I really can't think of one that even vaguely relates to the topic and still contains actual humor.

Oh my GOD!! ! I know the feeling. And for some reason I stay away from black people because of the excessive slang and their informal speech, that I seem to have difficulty keeping up with. It pisses me off that other people expect you to be 'black'. Sorry, I don't mean to generalize.

I love classical music, Kraftwork and various others in the New Romantics category. And I am not that black either.

I don’t listen to mainstream rap/hip-hop but I do like Horror-Core Rap like Ganksta Nip, Esham and the Gravediggerz. Ganksta nip is so psychotic and evil in his lyrics he is funny. I also love a song from Insane Clown Possy Call “I like to stab-them-all”

I isn’t beggin it at all I wouldn’t be good at it.
