I'm half white/indian as well. Of course not because barnes is a black guy. Its because his language choice (which i considered great quip) was considered inferior by others because it was "black talk" or "ebonics". NOT simply because it wasn't by the book (insert really long soap box about language being primarily spoken not written, therefore there is no "proper english") but because it was "ebonics" short hand "for those black people really screw up 'our' language because they are black. Like I tell my kids when they try to correct my countryisms - If you knew what I meant well enough to correct it then keep your mouth shut.

This is America dang it and i have as much right to make up words as the next guy. =)
