bacon bit: A rent-a-cop; not good/important enough to be referred to as a pig or bacon. I thought we'd be in trouble when the 5-0 started rollin' up, but then I realized it was just the bacon bits--mall security.

With regards to the previous review comment, i think it highly hypocritical to questions someones orientation towards race, when making no direct comment on this matter? Not all street slang was fashioned by black people? What a prejudice opinion itself! Get off your high horse before you get a nose bleed!
A fun title seemingly!

I DONT THINK THIS WHITE GUY HAS ANY IDEA HOW BLACK PEOPLE TALK. I WOULD BE OFFENDED IF HE CAME UP TO US IN A GROUP. IS THIS JUST SOMETHING TO MAKE FUN OF US WITH. HE OBVIOUSLY HAS NO CLUE WHAT THE HELL, SLANG IS. I FEEL THAT THIS IS A MOCKERY. AND IF HE WANTS TO KNOW HOW WE REALLY TALK , AND SAY STUFF, I SUGGEST HE TALK TO TO A DECENT BLACK PERSON, AND STOP TRYING TO BE "DOWN."
