Seriously, do each races have different ways they talk? Can you talk like a white person or a black person?

I don't really think it depends on race, it's more the environment you grow up in.

No. I mean, you might live somewhere were most of the black people talk one way or most of the white people talk one way, but if it were really a RACE thing all of them would talk that way.

well..i grew up in Albany Georgia..i am fluent in English, redneckanese and Ebonics lol...this doesn't mean every person in a certain race speaks this way but where I'm from you can tell a difference in each of the groups pretty well...there aren't many in each race that deviated from the different styles of talking in my area and i have had to be a translator on both of those to an Italian guy that moved down from Brooklyn lol..he spoke yankanese ;P

Yes....but there are exceptions to the rule. I grew up in an urban environment but I was always told I "talk white" meaning I used proper english. *shrugs* I take it as a compliment now.
