Why do so many Canadian Sikhs try to speak with "blaccents"?


Recommended Posts

I have noticed that many (maybe even a majority) of Canadian Sikhs try to speak the way American Blacks are stereotyped to speak. This is also true for many "famous" Canadian Sikhs (think of "superwoman" and other various youtube "stars") .

 

Why do they do this? American Sikhs know how ridiculous and absurd it would look for them to go around talking in such a way. I don't understand why Canadians do this.

 

Maybe because Canada doesn't have any real "hoods," they think attempting to sound like you are from the "hood" is cool, and they know nobody will call them out on it?

Maybe Canadians are in general so used to not having their own identity and living vicariously through others that they think it's natural to shamelessly imitate other people?

Maybe most Canadians are just corny?

Maybe because Jats are the only remaining group who are still actively alpha amongst the Sikh community.  We could also ask why are Jats the only group to aggressively take on Delhi in the protests.  

How much steroids and coke do these jut peasants need to take to make them feel alpha????  hahahahahaaaa!

Don’t say that bro you’re gonna hurt feelings of a certain ‘DollySingh’.  He still a hasn’t got over when his tribe got told leave by a few Kaleh armed with only sticks and stones from ‘Wakanda’.  Suc

It started in the 90’s when there was a surge in first generation Punjabi kids coming of age from the post-84 immigration wave. The previous generation was vastly fewer in numbers and subconsciously accepted WASP lifestyle as the default. You will encounter that generation today as having a much more “Canadian” accent with “ya know eh” usage (now mind you they are in their 40s and 50s  and plus now).

The newer generation was less willing to put up with the blunt racism and honed in on an identity they felt was the best counter to the dominant culture. This gave rise to the gansta, Punjabi mafia, all that bull crap. It just continued down generationally to today.

This had devastating impact on the level of higher studies Punjabi kids pursued and also lead to a large gang problem in Lower Mainland BC  and to a lesser extant Toronto/Brampton side. . These kids emulated the black hood culture American media portrayed. They got what they wanted with gang related deaths a common feature in Surrey, Vancouver, Abbotsford.

Too bad nobody thought of showing them what the real hood is like US cities. Would have scared them straight.

Maybe b/c a lot of the blacks have the guts to stand up to the whites.

Blacks here in Toronto respect Sikhs/Punjabi's. 

My boy who is black and a Filipino friend were ready to pounce on this big white dude b/c he was calling me out. But I avoided the situation b/c he was with his girl and she could've called the cops. 

As far speech goes, nothing wrong with this as long it's not offensive or derogatory. 

US is more wild in terms of the "hoods" b/c you guys have a bigger a population. In Toronto we have some tough neighbourhoods but that's whole different story.

Why has 'Jut culture' so heavily brought into this? To the point that Jut boys from rich families in Canada try and live 'gangsta'. I'd love some some elaboration. 

This includes hard drug dealing and murdering other Sikhs over this???

I think this is what it boils down to. 

A lot of apnay Panjabis, despite all their bullshyte, seem to have a deeply rooted inferiority complex (intergenerationally within their families) to goray. Probably stems from being descendants of sepoys in their colonial armies???

If my understanding is correct. Canada's black community predominantly is Afro-Caribbean so is quite similar to UK's black community which has an Afro-Caribbean presence . 

So the patois lingo they must be familiar to them if anyone remembers this:

Is the blaccent that common?

Does it happen outside of North America?

Here most people sound normal cause they don't like these black people. (although some people say my Australian accent is stronger than avarage now and then). But we don't have black people from the hood, we have eshays and they are much worse.

There is an ethnic Australian accent. You hear it with Pacific Islanders and some of those Lebanese.

    • https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-58996186 Vikings had a settlement in North America exactly one thousand years ago, centuries before Christopher Columbus arrived in the Americas, a study says.     IMAGE SOURCE,GETTY IMAGES Image caption,Replica Viking homes and other items at L'Anse aux Meadows, a Unesco world heritage site in N Scientists say a new dating technique analysing tree rings has provided evidence that Vikings occupied a site in Newfoundland, Canada, in 1021AD. It has long been known that Europeans reached the Americas before Columbus's arrival in the New World in 1492. But this is the first time researchers have suggested an exact date. Writing in the journal Nature, scientists said they had analysed the tree rings of three pieces of wood cut for the Norse settlement at L'Anse aux Meadows. They said that using an atmospheric radiocarbon signal produced by a dated solar storm as a reference, they were able to pin the "exact felling year of the tree" to 1021. Such a solar storm - a huge blast of radiation from the Sun that hits Earth - was known to have taken place in the year 992AD, the scientists said. This enabled them to determine a more accurate date than previous estimates for the camp of about 1000AD. "The association of these pieces with the Norse is based on detailed research previously conducted by Parks Canada," the study says, adding that there was clear evidence the sampled wood had been modified by metal tools. It adds that the L'Anse aux Meadows camp was a base from which other locations, including regions further south, were explored. The authors say the discovery represents a definitive point for future research into the initial consequences of transatlantic activity, such as the transfer of knowledge and the potential exchange of genetic information and pathologies. Dr Colleen Batey, a Viking specialist associated with the Institute for Northern Studies in Scotland, says the study does not necessarily suggest Vikings were not in the area in 1000AD. "It suggests that the short-lived settlement was active in about 1021 when wood was being worked at the site, probably related to either building or ship repair," she says. "As an archaeologist, I might interpret this as one stage of the occupation activity, not necessarily the first or indeed the last." L'Anse aux Meadows, a Unesco world heritage site on the northernmost tip of the island of Newfoundland, is the first and only known site established by Vikings in North America and the earliest evidence of European settlement in the New World. Radiocarbon dating is a technique that measures residual concentrations of a radioactive isotope of carbon (carbon-14) present in an object. Carbon-14 decays over time and measuring how much is left tells you the age of a sample.  
    • Thank you,  means a lot
    • I think it's different. The other lady just used 'vision' , whilst @jkvlondonis quite educated and well read, basing predictions on life experience.
