    Why do people say, when white people dress ‘hip-hop’ and listen to R&B, that they are trying to act black? And that when black people talk proper and listen to music other than R&B, that they are trying to act white? (One of our teachers heard about Y? and asked me to post a question to the site from our computer lab.)

    I live in Spain, and it is curious that it should even be a question. Americans in general seem much more hung up on race images. Hip Hop music is very popular in Spain, and there are quite a few Spanish groups that have picked up the rhythm. Can’t comment on comparison of lyrics.
