The realistic social aspect tha no one ever mentions


I am surprised that no one ever mentions that some little wite boys (not all) did use to go through a phase where they marvel at black young men...not necessarily because they are all that, but because of the novelty. There was a time in the 80's or 90's when you could see little blonde boys donning side tilted baseball caps and trying to be cool. The phase may not last long, but it was existent. Not to belabor the point, but I only seen the reference to Michael Jackson a couple times, but I think the parallells of his ranch and this movie are close.

You're mental. What white (not wite, moron), boys "marveled" at young black men? Perhaps in your sick mind. As for those white kids who wear their hats sideways, they were just adopting the lousy hip-hop culture (God knows why). Also, white kids don't have to act/dress black to be cool. That's an ignorant, racist comment if ever I heard one.

Your ignorance must be bliss.

I did, but mainly because of the size of their manhood. When I was in junior high, I saw a black kid almost trip over his in the locker room :P

Well speaking as someone who was a "little white boy in the 1980's" the original poster does have a point. Black guys used to seem much more "cool" in a way than white guys. And in some ways they were. They seemed to be better singers and not to mention they had better rhythm. A "brother" could move. White guys in the 80's however... well see Eddie Murphy's RAW for a good rendition of white people dancing. :P

And one of them is Justin Bieber!
