Something I would like to bring to attention to everyone is the word DICKRIDING!!!!!

This like bitchassness is also a plague in the black community!
Dick Rider

1. someone who is a follower not a leader

2. Someone who "sucks up" to one another, always agreeing with that person for something in return i.e. power. Thus, they are "riding" that individual's dick.

3.Somebody that isn't true to something and is only in it because it's the in thing.
It can be sports, music or TV.

Dickriding

Dickriding(Verb)-(1)Dickr iding is a situation where a freind or aquintance becomes very attached to a certain person.
Many times that pperson will find themselves behaving differently or acting like the person they are "dickriding".
(2)Or just being "on someones nuts".

I know a couple of dick riders...that is annoying shit.

Some Hawaii stuff, even tho it isn't necessarily used by black people:

Aina - land
Mauka - mountain side
Makai - ocean side
Leeward - East side
Ewa - West side
Soleh/Uce/Buleh/Poly - All are terms for a polynesian male, tho soleh is mostly for samoans, uce for hawaiians.
Tita - a poly chick with big ass tits but they are USUALLY FAT AND UGLY
Brah - NOT UNDERWEAR, this word is for reffering to close friends and replaces your name. eg: "eh BRAH, you like go to Laie one day, ah?"
Da kine - replacement word for ANYTHING. You will not know what "da kine" is unless u live in Hawaii. eg. "Eh brah, you da kine?" or "I like girls wit da kine"
Keiki - children
Faka - obviously another way of saying "Fucker", but people say faka cause teachers and adults won't care...also cause we have weird accents sometimes.
Kumu - teacher
Haole - white person
Hapa - japanese and white
Chop suey - mixed with a lot of ethnicities
Pidgin - da kine talk wea u talk lai dis brah!
Okole - Butt/ass, w/e u wanna call it...but we will never say "look at dat okole on dat girl right dea!"
Wahine - girls, women
Kane - boys, men

DON'T FORGET! THIS:

IS NOT A GANG SIGN. IT'S A "SHAKA" FOR SAYING HELLO AND GOODBYE.

Swagger........this is a word I've been recently hearing ALOT!!!!!!!

In the white man's english it means:
To walk or conduct oneself with an insolent or arrogant air; strut.
To brag; boast.

In black mans english:
Swagger is to to move with confidence, sophistication and to be cool.
Swagger is to conduct your self in a way that would automaticaly earn respect
To dress in a very stylish and quirkily fasionable way would suggest one is swagger.
mostly known as style, unique part of what makes you different than the other players in a cool way.
