So... Because they had an argument like any normal couple does from time to time, OP should dump him? I would like to know where all these "dump him" people are finding their perfect relationships.

60- I'm pretty sure we all understood the joke. The thumbs down are due to the lack of quality in the joke. Try not to be so up yourself: implying that you're superior to everyone here just makes you look like an asshole. You don't have some upperclass sense of humour we're all ignorant of. Also, some couples just aren't conventional, an argument like that may not be "normal" for you, but normal for other couples and not requiring a break up.

66, I never said I agreed that OP should dump her boyfriend, and in fact I don't. I was simply pointing out that people, including 9, misunderstood why 2 said she should dump her boyfriend, and yes, I stand by my assertion that 9 and others misunderstood what 2 meant. This isn't the first time I've seen FML commenters misunderstand a comment that isn't totally straightforward. It's really a common problem. I was expecting to get thumbed down for my comment (and this one) pointing it out, but I calls 'em as I sees 'em, and I don't apologize for that.

72, how do you misunderstand the words "dump him"? No one misunderstood. 2 meant that OP should dump the bf because he chose to rap his argument. MY point was no one is perfect. So he's got some quirks? Everyone does. That doesn't mean you dump them.

You said, "So because they had an argument like any normal couple she should dump him?" Sorry but you addressed the argument but not the way it was delivered. I agree that this incident isn't necessarily cause to dump him, but the issue isn't that they argued, but that the boyfriend argued by rapping...poorly...and then pouted like a child when his girlfriend laughed at him like the fool he was. And there is nothing "normal" about that, my friend.

95, I very clearly addressed the way it was delivered. I said it was stupid. My point was normal couples fight an when you are angry you can do some pretty stupid things. Rapping at her is a lot better than beating the shit out of her. There are many reasons to dump someone but this isn't it.

It's kinda funny because I had a similar situation where I got so angry I started rapping my insults while in a room full of black people, (I'm mixed) and got tons of compliments. That was about 2 years ago and they still remember that moment to this day.

He didn't discriminate against a race, he is against a certain culture, whether a certain amount of people from a race follow this culture is irrelevant.. Therefore, not racist. It is like saying 'I hate chavs'.

The real problem is that he stereotypes urban culture as inferior and "get money fuck bitches". He relies on the association fallacy because many HBCU students are adherents of urban culture. Last I checked, they usually get very good jobs.

32, Why are you assuming "urban culture" is synonymous with black culture? You racist? I grew up in suburbia, but I did volunteer community service in the poorest of the poorest urban community in my area, and there were actually very few black people there. Most of them were Latin American, and yes there were even some white people there. And yes, black, white, or latino, most of them shared a similar attitudes and style.

^ Are you suggesting that only black people talk like that, or listen to music with such lyrics? I assure you that also is untrue. I'm just saying you shouldn't throw around accusations of racism arbitrarily. It trivializes the issue.

^ EXACTLY. Good point. And yes, I also know many black people, and not one of them speaks like that. So who is really being prejudice here if you assume that 1) Only black people are in the "Urban Culture." 2) Black people can only be members of the "Urban Culture." Seriously, it's not as if there are no black people who not only live, but fit into, suburban and rural communities.

He's probably some dumb kid who lives in the suburbs and only thinks he's gangsta because the "hood" is only 3 blocks away, which gives him the false sense of thug life

#62, Sorry, but that's naive. Just because it wasn't true in your direct experience doesn't mean it isn't the common interpretation. Ever hear the term "dog whistle"?

91, I was simply pointing out that the generalization if is incorrect. There's nothing nieve about that. In fact, I know several black people who do not want to be associated with urban culture.

The problem I'm still having is that some of you seem to think there's a problem with urban culture at all. Not all adherents of urban culture are about "poppin da nine" or "gettin hoes". That's a stereotype in of itself. And to be clear, I understand the why the stereotype exists. At the same time, we wouldn't say Latino culture is all about Coronas and low riders.

That also is an excellent point. It's true that the term "urban culture" by definition would refer to any culture that exists in cities, and really, there are so many vastly differing cultures within any given city that it's impossible to really define the "urban culture." I think he was really pointing to the rap industry and possibly the American ghetto culture with which it's often associated. And I have to agree, in my opinion, that the rap industry does seem to have a negative effect on our society. It often glorifies violence and disrespect toward women. Although I am of course generalizing again. I'm admittedly not very familiar with rap music (as I don't much care for it) and I'm sure that not every artist produces such songs.

99, of course it's not. Have you tried their food? Having grown up in SoCal I can say for sure that low riders and food are the cornerstones of a rich culture, and Corona is for tourists. Dos Equis is a far better beer.

So can Eminem, who is the guy he's referring to, however, that's only 2 people. Then you have Jay-Z, Kanye West, Busta Ryhmes, Ice-Cube, LL Cool J, 2-Pac, B.I.G, etc etc... Who are all black.

When did he refer to Eminem? But hey, okay, racist stereotyping is just fine if it's against white people, right? 11 and 40 should be ashamed of themselves. Appropriate username though, 40.

Actually no, I haven't seen 8 Mile, but I know it stars Eminem. And I never said I was racist, that would be the admin, it's just no secret that 95% of white guys can't rap. Eminem is a great rapper, but he's the only "white" rapper anyone really knows about. Why? Because white guys that can actually rap are few and far between.
