Is this white guilt coming to the surface? I have a guy like this in my office, normal guy, when black people are around, he turns into a loud black reverend screaming from the pulpit. Its quite funny, but I doubt black people find it funny though. I caught myself heading that way today as I was with them, I was like, whoa!!!!! I gotta stop this.

You know, he was saying things like, "Come'on'na" "Oh, he ben here ah minute" "Dat's fresh" Things like that.

I've noticed that otherwise educated, well spoken blacks slip into street thugese when around other black people. Watch Obama when hes addressing an inner city, black audience.

Same reason guys talk dumber to blondes because of the dumb blond stereotype.

That's actually true..

I find that hilarious when he does it. It's like he's saying, "See I really am black. I just talk white up in DC."

I have noticed that I do it when I'm working. Example: when I'm dealing with a white person, I speak as I always have and ask them where they live. The minute I'm talking to a black person, I'm asking them, "Where you stay at?"

Never noticed anyone not doing it on purpose. Friend does it to be an ass.

I don't. If I'm around normal intelligent people I talk normally to them no matter what the race. If they're idiots I don't talk to them.

Speaking gibberish is the equivalentcy of going full retard. Never go full retard.

Black people do it too.

A black talks differently around a white guy than he does his black friends. Everyone does it to some extent.

I don't know anyone who does that.

Insecurity maybe? I have witnessed that too. Maybe the dude is using his interpersonal skills like a mofo, dog. Fo shizzle.

At work I come into contact with Japanese, Turks, Indians, Germans, and others.
Each time I reflexively mimic their accent; it actually does enhance communications.

It's normal.

When I spend enough time talking to Ukrainians I end up dropping articles from my speech.

Also when I listen to enough Mitch Hedberg I pick up his pattern a little and my wife makes fun of me.

It happens.

I see it often, people doing it look dumb. Speaking like an uneducated person on purpose proves the theory.

I saw something similar to this a couple weeks ago whenever I was hanging out with a black friend and ran into some of his friends. It was like he flipped a switch and went into a different mode entirely. It was interesting to see. So I suppose when they come around us(whitey) they turn in down a bit.

I never do it, I will pick on my congregation (esp. teens) by saying 'please go and knock on the doe foe moe times". I have had white preachers in that tries to talk down by talking black. It did not go over very well. I now really stress that the preacher needs to just be himself.

Sometimes it's involuntary. This one time in, like, 8th grade, this black girl in one of my classes came in with a big bag of Jolly Ranchers and out of nowhere I found myself saying, "Aw hell naw, let me get one of those!"
