Nicole’s post about outdated urban slang just jogged my hazy drunken memory about how my roommate confirmed, once again, that I’m the whitest black person ever.
I was talking about how one of the stores that I get a huge discount in at the mall is having a purse sale (50% off!), and since it’s an urban store, I’ve only been in there a handful of times (like 3 times really, and all but one were because I was pretty much forced to go there). We were chatting about all the different brands of purses that were on sale right now and I casually mentioned RocaWear, and the music all but stopped.
“Uh, RocaWear? You know you just mispronounced it right?” spat The Christitute (my only black friend btw, and she’s half)
“Guys, I know how it’s pronounced! It’s just I’m so used to referring to RVCA (pronounced Ru-ka) all day long that I messed up – also, I’m quite drunk right now”
“Whatever! It’s just further proof the you’re the whitest black person ever, jeez…”
