    As someone living in the DC area but not from DC originally, I have to say DC style is lame as shit. It don't matter whether dudes are teens or grown men, they always look like some cornballs. However, as demonstrated by the TC, they always believe they fly as hell. It's very strange to me.

    also, you can't consider the lil kids either

    Ehhh, maybe the most ridiculous dudes are the ones that stand out the most and those are the only ones I actually remember. It's possible.

    South Carolina, but I've pretty much lived in every state in on the southeast coast. FL, GA, SC, NC, and now VA. I'll put it like this. I might go to ATL and see some dudes dressed like some of the dudes up here too, but those cats are usually gay or on some metrosexual shit. Up here, normal straight dudes dress like that.

    I don't know maybe I'm just conservative. I'm not into all the crazy colors, tight clothing, nerdwear (crazy glasses, bowties, random vests).

    Oooooh, I thought you were talkin' about them niggas that dress like they finna mob everywhere they go.

    You just have no style. No offense, but every man should own a bow tie in his wardrobe. Several preferably. Not to wear everyday, but to change shit up once in a while. You one of them niggas that hate pocket squares too?

    I introduced that to my suit game and the white bitches looked a nigga with a lust I've never seen before.

    But here we were as young adults —news junkies, hip-hop heads, smart-asses and autodidacts who grew up in the hood — suddenly smack dab in the middle class, wielding much of the same privilege we’d always criticized. Because of our backgrounds, we were keenly skeptical of the politics of respectability, and surrounded by and socializing with self-congratulating Negroes who patted each other on the back because they were about something and self-congratulating white folks who patted themselves on the back because they had black friends. (But damn it if we didn’t love the sushi!)

    So where did we fit in?

    We agreed that labels were silly and reductive. So, of course, we created one.

    but no, he was muslim for a few years already when i met him. i do know a few people that converted to be with friends of mine. it's sorta hard to fake being muslim tho, cuz a lot more goes into it than being christian for example. you have to know how to pray, how to read the quran and all the other rules that go along with it. if he was faking i would've been able to tell

    c/s, one thing i admire about Muslims, is that when they're Muslim they're Muslim to the core. Whether it be for 2-3 life times, 2-3 years, 2-3 hours or 2-3 seconds.

    even the girl i was talking about in my last post, that was confused. On the days/weeks she was Muslim, she was Muslim to the core, and i got to witness first hand ; the passion, dedication, she had for her religion and it made her even sexier. i damn near became Muslim my self. but i only serve one true God, and that is Trillness,

    Ok my dude...my girl is from Djibouti but parents are Somali.

    You better be muslim or woo the fk out of her. Keep that street talk out of the equation. Their parents and many of them back in East Arica think a lot of african americans are not marriage material because of TV and media. But keep in mind they prefer to date within their own culture...regardless of color. So its nothing against you.

    Approach her like any other woman but prepared that her family may be against it. Just don't act hood and uneducated.

    However, it can work if she is strong minded and willing to bridge the gap between her family and you.

    if she loves you....she will take care of you for life. No questions asked.

    Also...if you not Muslim...at least know a little about it and show respect towards it as we should do already.

    False, it's one of the most attractive cities for transplants. At least according to surveys. Vast majority of new residents(in the district) are transplants.

    i've been here since 10, my sisters were born here, we're all pretty americanized. doesn't make much difference tho. we're like a mix of both actually, we look/dress like the average american girls, but culturally and morally we're usually pretty traditional. that influence comes from the family and community. we still have to do what is expected of us as good daughters

    I really feel for people like that. Love dukes to death, but I only live for me. For what anyone else wants.

    As someone living in the DC area but not from DC originally, I have to say DC style is lame as shit. It don't matter whether dudes are teens or grown men, they always look like some cornballs. However, as demonstrated by the TC, they always believe they fly as hell. It's very strange to me.

    no sir.......... don't get us confused with them uptown ass niggaz

    Wale fucking our rep up


    also, you can't consider the lil kids either

    most mofos think older DC cats are from NY until they talk

    Ehhh, maybe the most ridiculous dudes are the ones that stand out the most and those are the only ones I actually remember. It's possible.

    where you from fam?

    South Carolina, but I've pretty much lived in every state in on the southeast coast. FL, GA, SC, NC, and now VA. I'll put it like this. I might go to ATL and see some dudes dressed like some of the dudes up here too, but those cats are usually gay or on some metrosexual shit. Up here, normal straight dudes dress like that.

    I don't know maybe I'm just conservative. I'm not into all the crazy colors, tight clothing, nerdwear (crazy glasses, bowties, random vests).

    Oooooh, I thought you were talkin' about them niggas that dress like they finna mob everywhere they go.

    You just have no style. No offense, but every man should own a bow tie in his wardrobe. Several preferably. Not to wear everyday, but to change shit up once in a while. You one of them niggas that hate pocket squares too?

    I introduced that to my suit game and the white bitches looked a nigga with a lust I've never seen before.

    We going to have to agree to disagree. Bow ties are for little boys, circus clowns, and niggas selling bean pies.

    I'm here to learn you niggas.

    lol @ you learning us by posting a site with Mark Twain and Abe Lincoln. Those are the dudes that fathered your style huh?

    Fathered? No. I've always been a fan of the classic american prep look. It has never and will never go out of style. I'll be able to pull out a pair of chinos and an oxford out of my closet 40 years from now and still look great.

    Fuck trends.

    But here we were as young adults —news junkies, hip-hop heads, smart-asses and autodidacts who grew up in the hood — suddenly smack dab in the middle class, wielding much of the same privilege we’d always criticized. Because of our backgrounds, we were keenly skeptical of the politics of respectability, and surrounded by and socializing with self-congratulating Negroes who patted each other on the back because they were about something and self-congratulating white folks who patted themselves on the back because they had black friends. (But damn it if we didn’t love the sushi!)

    So where did we fit in?

    We agreed that labels were silly and reductive. So, of course, we created one.
