This is quite an interesting thread.

It is tough enough for us to understand NTz with PERFECT diction.............

These urban vernaculars (from the 'hood') are like extreme sports for Aspies :!: :arrow:


LOL

I bet you in if Aspies ruled the world, there would 100 special agent aspies figuring out what this type of stuff means.


If we ruled the world, they wouldn't be talking like this in the 'Hood' or ANYWHERE else :wink: :arrow:

......

You know you can simply go on urbandicationary and look up the slang terms, right? I did that when younger........

Granted some of the terms are probably as hard to discern to someone not skilled w/it as chanspeak and/or imspeak and 1337 to someone who has limited internet experience.........

(terms vary depending on region of your country, city, and neighborhood.....)

Just look up the neurotypicals' sites full of slang and dialect terms and phrasing.

But, I like girls. I do not like boys. Why would someone call me homosexual? What proof is there that would suggest my sexuality is not as I say it is? Why would I lie about that?


The black person who insulted you made up generic insults used against other black people and applied it to you. I.E. he did -NOT- think the insult through at all and used something he remembers as a generic statement. So his insult is a generic 'you're weaker and submissive to me' insult (calling someone a 'b***h')

"b***h" when said toward a male can mean stuff like weak, gay, submissive, or other things that may be viewed as weak traits by males that like to be seen as tough. Combining it as "b***h-ass" is just throwing another curse word in there, I guess trying to make himself sound more tough. I don't know why he added "nigga" on there.


in this case, 'nigga' = 'person'. He used it as a descriptor for a human in general. Normally i'd see black people (at least the younger generation) note the difference between 'nigga' and 'n****r'. (nigga is the term meaning dude/ally - and n****r is the insult). I don't know why if they're willing to "talk s**t" about something that they do not call them 'n****r' - given they're willing to call each other 'niggers' in other contexts/battles.

FFS 'the boondocks' doesn't make the distinction between 'nigga' and 'n****r'. So it's an institutional well......lack of organization over the meaning of 'nigga' vs 'n****r' (black people b***h about/argue on the application of nigga/n****r as well - go on a black forum of facebook group)

When people say "you're my nigga" it's like "you're my bro" or something. It's not always a bad thing, but in this context it is. He may have been trying to sound tougher than you or something, seem threatening, or he may have just been some guy who head something and repeated it. My little brother hears words and repeats them in the wrong context.


Hmm. Was the person in OP's story joking or trolling? That could be likely....... =/

"b***h ass" sounds more like a compliment than an insult, are you sure it was intended as an insult rather than acknowledging you as a fellow?


"b***h ass" is used as an insult from my knowledge.

I think "b***h ass" makes it negative, while just "b***h nigga" may make it neutral or even positive. I'm no expert on the gangster vernacular, though.


"b***h nigga" is negative as well - implying cowardice and lack of gallantry. Also the whole 'i'm dominant to you, you're my b***h' homosexual innuendo in the hip-hop/rap community......from a group of people who -tend to- love demonstrating their homophobia and 'masculinity'.....(even if only now for 'entertainment' not 'glorification' - according to many rappers now)

A boy of a dark skin pigment called me a 'b***h ass nigga" today. I do not know what that means. Is it racist to get offended because he called me black, or is that just identifying who the insult was directed towards - me?

Does anyone have a clue?


Depends what context but almost all the time it's just friendly socialising. If it was an insult he wouldn't have used such a cliche phrase, people do it all the time. It's like saying "Yo don't all goin dissin mah dawgs yo".

Well that's how it goes down in Aus.

I don't think it's an insult with any personal devaluation attached. What it really means is "I'm trying to scare/intimidate you by sounding ghetto/gangsta" and nothing more. I'm white though so what do I know. :?


+1

Random aggressive comments with seemingly little sense to them are usually like a dogs bark.
"Im scared, so im gonna scare you." no point editing them for content XD

That would depend on body language and tone of voice, and also whether or not da niggas is tight with each other. :lol:

My best guess is it was just some teenager getting a thrill out of yelling generic insults at people they don't know. If they did it to the wrong person they could get their ass kicked though.

I'd agree, and chances are this kid has no idea how to curse at all. He's probably repeating something he heard and has no idea how to use it (seems to happen a lot where they watch an R rated movie that likely goes over their heads, but their parents let them watch it anyway . . . probably some insults and scenes they probably shouldnt be seeing either). I think ive heard that insult in a few movies, but they all involved "dark-skinned" gang wars and whatnot (amazing how difficult it is to find a politically correct words for those with different skin tones <sigh>).

It's the intent that counts; not what color the victim is. The "N" word is used only for meanness, as are other words such as one that starts with F, which is a mean reference to Gay people here in the USA. So with that said, it wouldn't matter what word he used, it was mean, rude, and un called for. I don't think it has any particular meaning, rather I think it's probably the only words the idiot who said that, knows how to say.
