Time to lose the bling

Filed under: Life & Style, In The News

It can be supremely embarrassing being behind out-of-date slang-wise and not realize it until you've already uttered a phrase that is, like, so totally yesterday. My dad once described a car as "cherry" in front of my date. It was 1987, the car was not red, and I died on the spot right there in the driveway.

So I appreciate rapper Kanye West taking the time to explain that "Only white people and older black people say 'bling' now. If a white person uses slang too early, then that makes them look like a wigger. But if black people use slang too late, then it makes them look like a wigger."

Word, Kanye! Next I'd like an explanation of the word "wigger" and why it is an acceptable part of your vocabulary.
