I don't know how this got so long. I guess I understand both sides being West Indian and American.

The underlined Star. I wake up I see black people, i go to the grocery store/turn on tv i see black people. I once posted that BHM made me wanna interact with YT people to see if all the rumours are true and if they smell like lemon scented pine sol LOL. I only see them at my gym. American or European YTs not Jamaican whites or red naygas or "brown" or the mixed race uptowners.

I liked what she said because i understood it just as Miss B explained and uppity mentioned.

ETA Kfoxx the everyday slangs not heard on mainstream tele I learned here. Cable, rap, the Black movies of the 1990s, black comedy special and sitcoms exposed me to AAVE/ebonics. I think I could sound American and authentically so if I was around y'all for say 2-3 months. (don't know one say a word about some of my countrymen who go abroad one time and start "twanging"LOL

I wanted to ask about the phrase "turned up" I heard Kevin Hart with it on BET awards and seen it on BHM. But where does it come from? what does it mean exactly! Jamaican say "tun up" and have been saying that one for about 3-4 years now. Eg. How is the party? ans; De ting "tun Up'/ tun up LOUD tun up till it buck etc etc Meaning it was a whale of a good time, it looks lovely, it's CRUNK, it is very very nice/hype/extravagant.
