    And I'm not gonna lie, almost everytime I see long nails on a man, it's a black man. [​IMG]

    Then you have those dudes that just grow out the pinky nail, like it a damn hook for picking in their nose.

    Do any of y'all have male friends with long as nails? And if so, do you tell them to cut that mess?

    Can y'all shed some light on this situation.

    for the purpose of gutting a blunt. and one longer nail is acceptable. more than one is suspect chin, and the chin should be checked on sight, brass knucklestatus

    I know why some dudes have long nails but others I guess just don't have nail clippers

    i usually wait until mine grow a bit before i cut them. honestly though i don't think long nails look good on anyone, everybody should cut theirs everycouple of weeks.

    the long nail meant wealth back in the day in Asia
    If he was able to grow his nails long it meant they didn't have to do any manual labor therefore he was wealthy.

    it's a Sign of Status

    i read in asian culture that it was a sign of wealth / luck

    long pinky nails can indicate coke usage...

    or the dude can just be nasty

    I remember being young dudes told me it had something to do with pleasing the womens, and i had one. Never got it though, in my head i was always thinkingi'd scratch that cooch up. I gotta ask my ogs again why we do it.
