Yep. "Aight" = short for Alright / Okay / et cetera
It's pronounced either "ah-eye-t" or "eye-t" for the extremely lazy. (rhymes with "tight")

"ight" would probably be pronounced "igg-ht" and is not correct.

I see "aight" and "coo" used mostly by stupid FOB ghetto wannabes or teenage girls.

"A'ight" is used in a few rap songs, but that's about the extent of it. Not really in common ebonic vernacular.

To many victims of pop culture, yes it is.

Strangely enough, I live near the ghetto and I've yet to see people talk like that.

acting ghetto is something that is not limited to kids... back in the day, it wasn't uncommon for rich white people to go to jazz clubs, so they could feel like they were "slumming it".

it is becoming common (so i heard on the morning radio show i listen to) that middle/high class yuppies are attending Ozzfest because of the Osbournes on MTV.
