Using Standard American English, not wearing the latest garbs from popular hip-hop/street clothing lines/artists is not an indication of this, however you will have some Blacks that are intimidated and/or insecure about who they are as Black people and will incorrectly use this term as a defense mechanism because they are intimidated.
When you show that your "deviation" so to speak isn't real deviation and that you can still connect and relate to the experiences that Blacks face and can understand the use of common wording or phraseology used in many Black communities, regardless of acculturation, without criticism you will not be considered an Oreo.
Learn to code-switch (Ebonics is our native tongue so to speak) or just be down to earth and relatable and proud of being Black and you won't be considered an Oreo.
Black people, stop calling other Blacks Oreos because you're intimidated. Many of them are not true Oreos. Many just don't know who they are and don't know their history.
Tracee Ellis Ross is a great example of someone who is not from the hood, but is NOT an Oreo; she speaks what's considered "proper" english and is proud of her Black ancestry. Rhonda Ross too, speaks "proper" but is proud to be Black, likes nice things etc, not an oreo.
Diana Ross is a great example of someone from the hood, who speaks "proper" english, but I've heard her use some phraseology and words specific to the Black community; it's embedded. She's a great example of someone who keeps it real, is proud to be Black, likes nice clothing/homes etc... but isn't detached from who she is and where she's come from.
MJ, yep believe it or not, he was proud

I hope this explained what a true Oreo looks like and what it truly is.
Rastus: Uh... what does Fortune 500 mean?
These characteristics being (but not limited to), raised in an environment that's NOT the projects, speaking proper english/very limited use of slang, having an eclectic taste in music, having a diverse group of friends, being well-educated, being legitimately employed, not abusing the welfare system, being well-mannered and civilized, saves money for college instead of bling and cheap grills, and wearing nice clothes that are not Roca Wear, Sean Jean, Baby Phat and so on.
Most blacks confuse the "oreo" stereotype to being "bourgie", which is a very rude, stuck-up black, who thinks they are more "high-class" than they really are.
This stereotype is stupid, and apparently stems from the fear most nigg3rs have of success. Blacks believe that unless you are a talentless rapper, a professional athlete, or "gangsta", it is impossible to be successful without being an "oreo".
2) A painful word of irony that causes Spike Lee anguish, and historical black figures to turn over in their graves.
(PS) I'm black.

2) Our leaders suffered such great trials so we could get ahead in life. But even hundreds of years later, with the NAACP, the United Negro College Fund, the equal-opportunity employment act, and the affirmative action policy available to us, we still haven't made any progress. Successful black people are called "oreos".
