The 4 Reasons “You Sound White” is a Huge Insult

You CAN’T sound white!

“‘You sound white’ is like a multi-layered bean dip of sh*t.”

Somehow, along the long way, the phrase “you sound white” inexplicably became a sort of compliment if it came from a white person. If it came from another race, it was meant to be an insult. Thing is, that phrase is LOADED with many not-so-great meanings.

As the video above shows, “You sound white” can mean:

  1. You’re one of the good ones.
  2. You’re as close to being one of us as possible.
  3. You’re well-spoken and articulate.
  4. You’re educated.

It’s basically glorified bullsh*t because we all know that “being white” is not the standard. Being white does not mean “being the best.” We all speak the way we speak and we’re not less or more if we don’t sound the way others do. Period.

Check out the video above to hear what others think about this phrase.

Why Do All Latino Dads Dress The Same?

Latino dad

There’s no question that Latino dads are hard-working, loving, funny and incredibly supporting. We love them for that. But one thing papá could work on is his selection in the fashion department…

We all have the dad who refuses to let go of the shirt he got as a birthday gift.

The one he got 15 years ago, but won’t let go porque “todavía está buena.”

He’s still on that 1990 cholo style.

Never mind that he now wears dad glasses, he’s still rocking his plaid shirt, khaki pants, and beanie. Como siempre… Time to upgrade.

Plaid is his Sunday’s finest.

Inspired by his own kid.

He’s so in tune with hip hop gear.

He will give you a serious talk, while looking gangsta in that Ecko gear you wore 10 years ago. READ: Only Latino Dads Make Their Family Go Through All This When Road Tripping

His fashion motto is socks up, belly out.

Because it’s hot up top, cold down below.

He sometimes decides shirts are optional.

Ain’t no shame in his dad bod… But he still won’t let go of the socks and sneakers.

He sometimes tries to pull a monochrome Kanye look.

All white everything and ready for anything because the casual sleeveless shirt, baseball cap, but fancy cowboy boots would be acceptable whatever the dress code may be.

His signature tejana is his favorite accessory.

Perfect for hiding his bald spot. Goes perfectly with his ‘stache.

Some prefer the classic baseball cap.

Serves the same purpose as the tejana.

But he switches it up at the beach with protective gear.

Even if they look a bit silly, dads know better than to expose their body to too much sunlight. READ: Only Latino Dads Make Their Family Go Through All This When Road Tripping

He thinks he looks as cool as you with his blue polarized sunglasses.

Along with sweats, cowboy boots (always) and every hat he has at home.

He hates on USA teams, but has no problem rocking these.

So predictable.

And when he just wants to chill at home, the superhero Snuggie is his go-to.

It really doesn’t matter what our dads wear, they’ll always be our superheroes.
