    non-related white guys calling each other 'brother'

    'bro' is fine

    'bruh' is alright too

    'brah' just sounds stupid, but is generally acceptable in any trailer park community

    but 'brother' and even more importantly 'my brother' should be clearly off limits.



    thank you for your support

    Bikers and Aryans also refer to each other as brother.

    Its a show of solidarity. I call my closet friends brother as they are my family.

    I also call some of my black friends honkies.

    Go figure.

    Bro, bruh, brother, brotha - they're all the same just different spellings.

    What word would you prefer they use?

    Here's a funny story:

    I'm at 31st Street Beach, playlot with my kids, last year. The white teenager, is hanging out, in the playlot, atop the monkey bars, and at first Glance, He's yelling 'Nigga, this, Nigga that" very loudly. Everyone's looking at him, like wft!? Only to realize, he's rapping along to tunes on his Ipod, with earphones.

    What you gonna do.

    I meant amongst themselves. I've heard a variety of races/colors use the term brother. I agree it's a sign of solidarity.

    I was getting some chicken and plantains from the local Ivory Coast take-out last night, and there was a gang of kids - all but one black - waiting outside for their order. The guy banged on the glass to tell them to come in, they stroll up to the counter and start sorting out their order, and the white one goes "N****, you didn't get any chicken fo' me?"

    I was embarrassed for everyone in there.

    ^^^Bwuhahahahaha!!! Nothing. Do nothing at all but laugh at the lunacy. You can thank your local 'keeping it real rappers' for that contribution to society. They've made the word fashionable.
