Hello UG

I am caucasian (from Russia, if that matters) and I personally haven't been called a "white boy", but I have heard the term being used about some other guys.

Why is being told "liek OMG ur such a white boy" considered to be a derrogative term? Yeah, I know I'm white, why make a big fuss out of it?

It's more about acting white

It's usually said to people who are white but are trying to be black, or use black lingo.

I call one of my friends white because he can't dance.
However, as all my friends are white (including me) it's quite silly.
Did you know there are only 10 black people living in the town next to mine? that's out of at least ten thousand people
That was a rare post..

By eating mayonnaise on a sammidge I suppose.

And by using the "Time-Out" parenting technique.

Its a racist remark. Call a black man "boy" and see if he gets offended.
#14
Usually used when someone tries to jump and fails horribly, or just used when dancing...
#15
By itself, it doesn't really mean anything, it's just an objective statement. But because of the tone of voice that usually accompanies it, well it starts to carry an almost negative connotation , though it never bothered me..probably because anyone who have ever called me that was also white as me.

Grape drink sounds like some Americanised bastardisation of the English language to me - much like a child still learning to talk properly.

Ha! I remember this guy (black guy) and he was called "boy." Pissed him off so severely he threatened to shoot the guy that called him boy when he meant no harm whatsoever. Funny thing is, the black guy's name was "Johnboy."

Because black is where it's at nowdays.
Sucks, cuz i dont think black is where its at.

Indeed, or just plain ebonics. As mentioned, the correct way is 'mah purple drank'.

Lol I hate it when ppl call me white. I"m not even white, anyone can see that i'm brown/asian. but like all my friends are like " Wow, yo'ure so white, just because I like Rock music. And I get bored when i'm listening to R & B music, and becuase i like skateboarding, and because I like I don't speak my parent's languages, and my friends do. They're always like You're so white on the inside, and that brown ppl are supposed to be more black. pisses me off. It's not like I"m trying to be white, Im just a normal, kid, growing up in a suburban neighborhood. And now just because I'm brown, I can't play guitar because only white ppl do that? And all my friends always make fun of me. Like once they asked if I liked slipknot, and I only herad a few songs, and thought they wre ok, so I was like ya sure, and they kept bugging me about it, like they were like "yo, are you gonna cut yourself, and kill your mom" i was like wtf. i dont even listn to slipknot. then I started listning to gangsta rap and i started rapping and my freestyles were so dope(cheesy, but they liked it) , so now they dono wats wrong with me.

It's just a phrase referring to stereotypes. If you act like the stereotypical white kid then you get called it, it has nothing to do with you actual ethnicity. I call my singer a nigger all the time, and my sister a white girl. Just be a little more eccentric and you'll be cool

I have been called a white boy even though I have brown skin. I guess I'm white in the inside and brown on the outside. I laugh when I see a white person calling another white person "white" to insult them.

You're from russia. You're not gonna get the concept of "white boy" unless you're from america, or watch A LOT of stupid american movies from the 80s to today.

I'm black, and I have never heard this term used on anyone white, as a matter of fact I'm known as the whitest black boy because I don't act like I'm supposed to.

I call my friends white crackers and honkeys sometimes, but that's just when I'm claiming to be black. The rest of the time I call them my n*ggers (or nignogs, anything i feel like really).

God I love living in a town where I don't have to worry about accidentally being racist, we just plain don't have ethnic minorities! There's no racism just because there is no need. We have I think at most 5 non-white people in my year of at least 500.

We raped the black man of his music, so therefore, he gets to make fun of us a little. Capisce?
