Vocabulary props! That's one of the words I like to throw around at work to get blank stares.

You should try sesquipedalian...

Perhaps my favorite, most ironic word in the English language

Been using that one since a college professor at NYU threw it at us...

Well, if your posts weren't multiple paragraphs long (of reiteration at that), then you'd have over 20,000+ posts yourself.

I work with some real mental cretins too.... I'd hear crickets chirping if I started using such words!

^^^ lol! The guy will never become a diplomat, but you do kinda have to admire his bluntness.

He is what he is.

I would like a pair of these 50 Cent headphones - maybe then I won't get so many strange looks when I black up with boot polish at the weekend.

It's not a racist comment in the slightest mate - my point was that by transference of Gangsta image via the tie-in with Fiddy, these headphones are projecting the message that by wearing them the user is somehow aligning themselves with that culture - which, let's face it, is probably 99.9999999% black.

In essence therefore, buying these, the Monster Dr Dre, or even - how about this thought? - the Miles Davis Tributes, means one is effectively saying "I wish I was black".

Which is why I never go anywhere without my Lady Gaga iems.

I believe you are seriously reading too much into this. I know there are stupid looking phones BUT I will never ever link phones with who it is being tied to(not to mention I never bother to know too much other than it is stupid looking).

Good for you - me neither.

But if you think I'm reading too much into the tie in with Fifty Cent, then you clearly don't understand the first thing about the power of marketing.

No, the average hip-hop fan in the USA, let alone the world, is not restricted to one completion or race. The fact that you automatically assume so is a fallicy on your part, same as insinuation your gonna get a set of these cans and it's kool for you to put on some "black face".

If I get a set of HP's endorsed by any star, it'll be because they sound good, not based on wanting to be black,... And most of the kids/adults get them because they think a "star" endorsing them means they sound fantastic!!! The fact the star is black is a moot issue - and your black face comment is damn racist!!!
