    I notice several Fchatters are sporting new custom avatars, many emphasizing which coast they live on and plenty of ghetto speak. Some, like Bradley Farrell's, make ZERO sense to me. I have to admit I don't watch MTV anymore, so maybe I'm missing the newest fad....but I thought all this stuff died with Tupoc.

    Help me out here,

    Someone has "nuckas" written on theirs. Anyone who doesn't know what it means it is basically slang for "*****s."

    I thought that was pretty damn bold!

    Yes, bold. As in they are taking a huge risk of offending others by putting such a harsh word in their avatar. I did NOT mean bold in a good way!

    I am not very familiar with his stuff, but his website has all sorts of information and links. Even some sample music. Check it out!

    'nuckas' does not mean the 'n word' in slang.

    He didn't say you were a racist, maybe just misinformed and lacking tact. I have definately heard the terms "nuggahs" and "nuckas" used interchangebly with the n-word. It's just the natural progression of the slang.

    Brother Bruce,

    I am more perplexed each day. Just look at how this thread has been turned into an AOL chat room. You and John are the only two who kept this one on the subject of my original post. I think my meltdown is starting....

    i also use the word nukKas occasionally and have always thought was
    short for nuckleheads. i am far from being a racist and i know hubert, and
    he is not one as well. so give him a break.

    ok guys here we go again sorry for the news guys but yes nucka,nicka and nuggah means *****s.

    now before we all get in a internet melt down i will addmit that i for one use the slang all the time but not in a racist way whatsoever i use the slang just as hommies or friends. So in the past and present i do type the word nucka or nicka and thought that everyone who was responding to it and useing it was aware what it ment. As for my avatar what is it about my avatars that you dont understand i will be more then likely to help you understand all the meanings behide my avatars. All of the avatars that i have used make total sense to me because i am a artist and everything i do has a meaning behide it and i am willing to share with you whatever your question may be. After all that is why we joied this great family of ferrari chat to gain some knowledge ufortunatly the one field that i am not learning is spelling.

    on the side note when hubert made his avatar i thought it was very bold as well and straight in your face but at the same time he did not know that it was going to give off heat because he did not know what the word nucka stood for. Acctually i thought it was funny that he was so bold. But please lets not burn him it was a honest mistake and a big UPPPS to my new friend BRUCE who has learned to just block it out and occasinaly join in ThanKS bROtHEr brucE FOR UndErSTANdiNg.

    1 OTHER THING.......... supNUcka!
