I just don't get why people hate

Check out this thread on toyota nation.

http://www.toyotanation.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=243481

The guy Reddoggg78 is a buddy of mine who is black and may have a different style than what most do, but he's just getting ripped apart on his ride and now they're even making fun of his lingo and how he talks. Then when I try to say anything to stand up for him, they just start pitching shit my way. I just can't believe it, and I don't know why the mods on that site don't just delete that thread. Anyways, it's just kinda irritating and I thought others should check it out.

Re: I just don't get why people hate

If the responses are racially motivated or getting out of hand then report that and ask for the thread to be closed.

But to the point, how does this have anything to do with this site?

Take your fight to the mods of THAT site and resolve your issue.


Note: I'm not teabaggin you here, it just has nothing to do with this site AND your civil liberties shouldnt be infringed upon too strongly.

Re: I just don't get why people hate

Well, this is the Lounge, so I thought we can talk about whatever we wanted on here. I'm not asking for this site to do anything, I'm just saying that I think it's messed up for people to hate so much. It's one thing to have a little constructive critism, but to go as far as making fun of how they talk is just wrong.

Re: I just don't get why people hate

Your friend seems like a pretty chill guy, and I'm sure he's nice, but the people on that board aren't being that harsh (at least in the first 3 pages that I've read, and stopped there). Like they said, "to each his own".

I would have worded the first sentence more carefully. It almost seems like you're perpetuating the stereotype that all black people have weird or different tastes and styles.

I didn't read the thread, but I did see the pictures of your friend's car. That hood and grille look badass.

My bad, I didn't mean to make it sound like that. It's just that others are looking at his car and the way he talks, and they're just tearing him apart. I'm not saying the two are related. I'm not that big of fan of some of the mods he did either, but it's just not my style. He doesn't care what people think about his ride either, but when they're telling him to speak proper English and stop using "thug" slang/lingo, that's just really irritates him and me. Not everyone talks the same or acts the same, so who cares. I can understand every word that he says, so who cares what words he uses to get the point across. I don't know, I'm just blowing off steam.

I understand the point you're trying to get across and I completely agree with you.

Re: I just don't get why people hate

I actually like that hood, I just don't like the grille. Who am I to complain though, I have a big garish billet grille on my CX-7.
