WE CAN PLANT A HOUSE, WE CAN BUILD A TREE

or a cake.

Today I am sore and tired. My father came over yesterday and built a wall for Lindsay's room and we tried to help him out as much as possible. Before she was pretty much sleeping in the kitchen with a chinese curtain diving things. It made it hard for me to get a late night snack or come in late at night w/out waking her up. My dad is a super hero and the wall looks amazing. It's removeable and goes up to the ceiling and in a couple of days we're all getting Divo (digital tivo) set up, so we'll never leave the house. Oh joy.

Things I learned this weekend:

- Always check ID and make sure they're of age.
- Brian is an amazing DJ.
- All the latino boys who live on the LES dress like Kevin Federline. All of them. GIGANTIC WHITE T-SHIRTS.

Divo is the best. Divo makes a great boyfriend. Which is good, because you'll never be going out ever again. Get lots of Sparks and be prepared...

speaking of awesome DJ's, the powerglove is really cool.

All ugly hipsters are allowed to make sweeping racial generalizations - as long as they keep it ironic. All of them. Sweeping racial generalizations.

there's a difference between racism and logical conclusions based on observations. How's this for ya?

"In the years since 1992, approximately 90% of every male of African-American descent under the age of 30 that I have seen in NJ has been wearing a large white t-shirt."

Hey McDouche! Quit reading this blog. And yes, all the latino boys in my neighborhood dress like that and I am not the only person who will point that out. Obviously you're so insecure... a closeted racist perhaps.

As a Latino from her "neighborhood" who rarely wears white t-shirts, I'd have to say she's dead wrong. The rest of my family can vouche. Shockingly, a lot of my friends break that preconceived mold too! Some of them do rock that thuggish look, sure. Then again, so does every other street-fashioned dude around here. Sorry to throw a wrench in your precious gearbox, but that's the truth. By the way, where'd this talk of "racism" and "racist" labeling come from? That dude up there made a point - Sarah did make a general statement about Latinos around her way - but he didn't call her racist! Actually, the comment made me chuckle a little. God damn people. Ease up and stop freaking out. Palante, siempre palante.

preconcieved notion: All latinos, without meeting each one, wears giant white t-shirt.

Prejudice based on race: See above.

Looks like racism to me, as defined by dictionary.com.

Hardly a case for the international courts, but really, its the insensativity of others beliefs and feelings that's the real issue with the original poster's arguments. I beleive also that his/her mimicry of sarah's statement that also shows that this is to be taken in a humorous light as well. How....ironic.

I'm black, and I can say without question that black guys in Jersey City have been dressing like Kevin since the advent of Dre. And, from what I've seen, Latinos on the LES, (Av C &D) have been dressing like that for some time now. I think sarah's point was that "hip" white kids like Federlane "borrow" minority flavor. Nothing racist about that, just the facts.

For the love of crap, get the hell off of her back. She obviously didn't mean it as a racist remark. Does no one have a sense of humor anymore?

LOL@Ultraracist.

I was going to post something more substantive, but I started reading the comments and laughing so hard that I totally forgot what I wanted to say. Oh well.

I'm imagining Sara getting accosted by a group of angry Puerto Ricans screaming, "What? We wear gigantic white t-shirts, huh? Shit, fuck that. You bes' run, bitch, 'cause we gon' fuck you up!"

Even if the statement could be construed as racist (it can't), it's such an innocent "racist" statement that no one could ever be offended by it. Hispanics in Sara's neighborhood wear big white tee's? I mean, seriously. It's like Dave Chappelle going to the restaurant and the redneck behind the counter stops him before he orders and says, "You don't have to say a thayng. You gonna git the cheeken, ain't you?" Chappelle doesn't get mad. He's like, "You're absolutely correct," because, you know, he really was gonna order the chicken. (Of course, he does thank the redneck for pointing out that he was genetically predisposed to liking chicken. He wasn't just ordering it because it was "delicious.")

Sarah said...

OK, but seriously, what's the point of those fucking t-shirts? They go down to your fucking knees and look like a dress. I think some t-shirt making company had an excess of white shirt dresses and decided to market them as t's for the Kevin Federlines of the world. Tomorrow morning i'm taking photos.

sebrown000 said...

Those t-shirts are fly. Don't playa hate.

Ha, that reminds me of this Real World episode. Some kind of drama was occurring and all of a sudden that Asian chick, who is in no way, shape or form involved in said drama, addresses the camera and says, in the whitest voice known to man, "Cameron is totally hating the player instead of the game." Ever since, that's my response to any form of criticism I see heaped upon anybody. For instance, the other day my friend and I saw this guy in the Blockbuster. Dude's top teeth were horizontal. Literally. They were parallel with his nose. My friend's all laughing after the guy leaves. I stop him, look him dead in the eyes and say, in the most serious way I can summon, "Dude, you need to quit. You're so totally hating the player instead of the game."

Sarah? Style? Those two words don't go together, honey!

I like when the big white t shirts have fold creases in them. and when the wearers walk with that dumbass limp.

S said...

Actually, can someone please explain the limp to me? I never understood that. I mean nothing says "I have serious street cred" more, then looking wounded apparently.

bad fashion knows no race. over sized t-shirts suck. wish the street boys would start dressing like franz ferdinand.
