I had this girlfriend once that thought since i was white i should wear Abercrombie and Fitch and listen to Creed. It was so annoying. I didnt and still dont act anything "black". I dont really know what acting black is, but since Im not trying I know Im not acting it. I dont know how Stussy and Lifted Research Group clothes make me black. Maybe it was the "tilted cap".
I love being white....

I don't mean to be a "natural wigger" or whatever the fuck this stupid shit is about, but hip hop has always been about being black.

Do you have any idea who Crazy Legs is?

How about Mantronix?

Double D & Steinski? Arthur Baker? Charlie Chase?

All these people are NOT black and helped shape hip hop as we know it.

Sorry I don't buy the hip hop always been about "being black" argument.

Don't confuse what is labeled as hip hop today as a accurate representation of what the culture is really about or capable of.

You wouldn't dismiss Italian food based on a frozen pizza from 7-11 would you?

Even though there are far more 7-11s around today don't generalize the entire culture based on them.


Oh right, because with those examples you posted, you were trying to prove...what? That there were whites latinos et al at its inception?
Fantastic, you're missing my point.

Hip Hop is a creation of inner city BLACK CULTURE.
Doesn't mean whites didn't participate (or any other "race", for that matter).

Just that hip hop was created in black culture, and has always been about black culture.

Incidently, did you know that for years the most sampled song in hip hop was James Brown's "I'm Black and I'm Proud"?

Man, a lot of you are taking offense at this.. don't. Just take it for what it is and laugh at it. You seem to think the term "wigger" goes for all white guys that likes hip hop or whatever, but that's not what it is at all. Let me explain to you what a wigger is (after having read this book, since I actually never knew that word before) and hopefully clear this up. And this is not the blueprint of a wigger, it's just an example to get the point across:

A wigger is a white, economically stable individual that by some reason often is considered not-very-cool by others, i.e. class mates in school. Therefor he finds himself intrigued by hip hop, ghetto-films (and other films with Blacks in it too, for that matter), relating to the discrimination of a minority. So, he finds the white people responsible for all of this, thus is ashamed of being white. So in straight denial he starts acting like he's one of these Black individuals that he's seen in these films and hip hop videos. He wants to be like them so bad, that he'll do whatever to be accepted by them. And to be accepted, and ultimately respected, by them he has to show them that he's certainly not one of these fucking white devils that they might confuse him with. So he starts dressing "hip hop" with baggy clothes, accessories and other stuff he sees these people wear. He starts walking and talking like them. He gets the true gangsta hip hop records, like 2Pac, DMX and maybe even some Master P. Though he is very careful when approving new artists, especially white ones, before his Black friends does. What if they think he only likes them because he's white?
So, consumed by all of these images he gets of hip hop, most of the time the MTV-type of it, he is eventually lost in himself.

I could go on, but just to sum it up for all you lazy ones, you are a wigger if you're desperate to be "down" and start acting "Black" in denial of being white. It is a kind of identity crisis, I'd say. Remember, this is a phase that most wiggers often go through in their early teens, and most grow out of it sooner or later.
