I don't find this remarkable at all. I can shop for this stuff in person where I live and there are tons of other websites offering similar wares. This is just one that I happen to have in my browser history. Maybe I've just been living in Baltimore too long...just sayin'

Angelfire hosting ... the gold standard is shoddy, shady plastic gansta warez.

This is not at all directed at starscream for posting this, but I am surrounded by white people who CAN'T STOP mimicing black subculture for fun.

"Fo shizzle! I'm keepin' it real! Check out my iced-out dubs! They cost me mad scrill! I'm a playah!"

Oh ho ho. Ah ha ha.

If any of this crap is still super-cool with the inner city blacks, something's wrong. By the time golf-playing whitefoo has heard of it, it's supposed to be O-VER.

It's kinda sad how whitefolks think there's a meta-layer of irony protecting them when they co-opt black culture. They're not just stealing authentic inner city culture because they're soulless suburbanites. Oh no. They know you know they know. That makes it a joke. Or something.

But it isn't anymore. Be white. Get your own thing.

hip hop jewelry needs.

Somehow, I read that as "hip hop Jewish needs"

I whole heartedly second scarabic's comment. Posts like this are not ironic or funny, or anything, just really irritating and insulting. White ironic internet types (including me): How about we start connecting to some real culture of our own, or at least stop mocking other people's from afar.

Anyways, scarabic said it all much better.....c

Scarabic: I'm interested in your comments 'Be White'; as a British white male it appears to me that significant elements of Black British/Urban culture derive from African American culture. To what extent would you regard this adoption as valid on the basis of colour alone (if at all?). Does this adoption differ from the adoption of cultural elements by white America?
