Black culture is pretty diverse, get in where you fit in. I am not ghetto but I have friends who are ghetto and I don't think badly of them automatically based on where they are from. I guess you could say my culture is middle class blacks. we aren't bourgeois like upper middle class old money blacks, but we are kinda educated and have a little change to play with. We weren't the Cosbys but we weren't Good Times either. We would probably be closer to Family Matters. I tend to link up with middle class college black girls the most, but i can branch out and be around anyone that is cool. i have hood family members and party with them but i don't totally fit in with them.

That's not to say I don't respect other cultures, it is interesting to visit other countries and learn about theirs, but in the end I prefer my own culture and my own people, and I think that's natural. When you change the people you change the culture, and what enforced multiculturalism actually results in is the opposite of diversity:
