There's an idea of what it means to act black that has a basis in reality.
It's not all about stupid stereotypes. All cultures just have a different way about them...values and attitudes, and interests and whatnot.
For example, when people call Obama "the whitest black person", I never would think to deny it as racism.
Llamas, your invention would be the first step towards preventing gamer marathon deaths related to dehydration and no food. Not to mention it would curb the no sleep thing too, since its really hard to NOT sleep when tired and full of food. Put enough hype around that sort if thing and you could get government funding towards research that makes that shizz a reality.
I'm about as black as dey cum. Well, I'm fast, I could jump decently high if needed, I play baseball, I play a lot of pickup basketball, and I can rap like a fiend. I knew this kid named Demarcus in the ATL who was black, and had all those physical attributes. I knew a total oreo named AJ who was as white as blacks come. Note: oreo is a term for a kid who's black on the outside but white on the inside. He liked golf, sucked at baseball, and his dad loved rock music.
But seriously, Big City Cletus, it's time to shut up about blax. You know why?
Niggas wanna rob me now
Bitches wanna slob me now
Hoes didn't holla last year, feel sorry now
Practice jumpshot, Reggie Mill, Robert Horry now
Nigga dat you with: played like Atari now.
This is funny because I have a black friend that doesn't act it at all and a white friend in the same group of friends who, other than not talking like eminem, acts kind of black.
Your Greg K. looks like Nietzsche to me.
From where I sit, there's very little difference between the two anyway.
Bighead, I frequently find myself asking this question to myself when I read your threads, but maybe it'll help to ask you: Is there a point to this? I know you said just curious, but usually when I say that, I know I'll be using that information toward further analysis later. I have plenty of black friends who act in ways I'm sure you're thinking of as black. But I don't think of it as that, really. They're cool, chill dudes just like my other friends.
I decided to act black and put a plate of vegetables as my avatar.
What do you mean it's not a black stereotype ? :(
I guess it's just about my perception of blacks and whites living in two very different worlds. In my experience, when your average white person has a black friend, that black person tends to be the type of black person that is relatively more acquainted with things that are associated with white culture and things whites can relate to.

Are you fucking kidding? White people have always been attracted to what they consider "black culture."
A good listen:
