Good topic, and if you read BroBomb you're pretty likely to see an article that touches on it in the near future.
BUT to step outside of the skiing bubble real quick, we've gotta realize that mainstream (white) culture copying black culture is no new thing. Nearly every form of American music in the last century has come from black culture: gospel, blues, rock n' roll, jazz, R&B, Soul, Funk, and of course hip hop.
There's a quote from Mick Jagger that goes something like this: "The Stones and the Beatles were just white kids from England who wanted to make Black-American music."
this has gone from asking a very formal question to giving jokes on yellow kids.
jesus, i love newschoolers!
yeah, there's been a million threads on this, but when you sit back and think about it, this is probably 1 of the most important questions we are confronted with everyday that we're on snow or hikin the boot pack. Where are our roots and why the fuck do we do what we do.
there are so many different angles to this issue that are directly influence by our changing culture.
If I had to guess I think he's not trying to get across a point but trying to make white, skinny, upper middle/upper class kids question why they hide behind this "inner city black" facade in an attempt to make them realize that they're not black.
That's if I had to guess.
And if you ask me that's not necessarily a bad thing because people should be who they are, not pretend to be something they're not.
Lets clarify this thing
-yes indeed Ski is the whitest sport on earth
-It is not called gangsterism but STEEZE
-and I think that everything is made to differ from racing... Racers put googles on their helmet.. we put ours under and so on
you know.. so have fun, sex, beers and ghost ride
