'Saying swagger should be illegal for a kid raised in Brentwood'

It seems that Tom Hanks' son Chet Hanks, AKA Chet Haze , recently drew the attention of a former rapper on Twitter, over his gangsta persona and slang he apparently adopts online.

I am really not a fan of otherwise educated people adopting ghetto slang and mannerisms. It has always been something of a pet peeve of mine. It must be a source of particular pride for someone with the accomplishments of Tom Hanks to have a twenty-something kid with no career and only a vague desire to be a hip-hop star someday, making an ass of himself online, by playing gangsta and threatening to kick people's asses.


I wonder what percentage of successful movie stars and celebrities have kids that accomplish anything meaningful, as adults? This trend doesn't seem to stop just with celebs either. I've known several self-made millionaires that were highly intelligent, hard working and very successful that managed to raise kids that were completely useless. I know a parent wants to give their children the best of everything, but what are you really giving them when you lay the world at their feet on a silver platter, without them having to earn it?

The inability to articulate or express ideas and thoughts in proper English is the number one thing that will hold kids back in life in America. It's a shame that some people make excuses for it.

I can't say how Tom Hanks or other rich people raise their kids. Raising kids is a challenge no matter who you are.

You would think he'd look at what his dad has done and what his brother is doing and at the very least be inspired to alter his speech pattern.

I get to see young white men who have adopted the "urban lifestyle" every night I tend bar. Gold chains, grills, pants below the ass, all of it. I struck up a conversation with one last week, as he had a half dozen building block tattoos on his forearm. He explained that the letters in the blocks showed his love for music(they spelled ghetto) and how he was a musician. I asked what instrument he played, he said he didn't play an instrument, he "sampled".

So let me get this strait.


One wanna be is hounding another wanna be and neither one of them has a talented bone in their body.Lets just ask Eminem what he thinks about being a wanna be.


Hey I have an idea, let them fight it out in the celebrity boxing match.


It will be epic.


" castaway cuz cracker against hilarious honkey"


they won't come out swinging, just swearing.


MORONS.

It doesn't bother me in the least how a person acts, what he does or who he is as long as it is legal and not in my house.

When I see white boys dressing gangsta style, I just smile because everything is still all right with the world.

When I see Asian boys dressing gangsta style, I chuckle... and chuckle some more.
