No one answered the actual question I had though... who here actually knows the history of step?
Who said white people can't have their own culture? They do. We own the United States, all of Europe, the international banking system... that's
just off the top of my head. Just because someone cries racism it doesn't mean it is.
Put away your race cards and let's call things like they are.
White culture doesn't have a part in tribal Africa (other than stealing from it). So why are they competing in what boils down to a tribal ritual
If white fraternities and sororities want to compete in something like this the very least they could do is source some Nordic rhythm and rituals...
this is the one that will get quoted
wow this is one of the dumbest posts i've ever read on this website. i feel bad about it.
first, no, i don't know the history of step, and i don't need to.
secondly, that's great forsight you have there: "I knew after reading responses you wouldn't like it."
so because i'm white i can't practice kung fu (and enter competitions and win if it's sponsored by a huge corporation that doesn't want to lose
face or lawsuits from civil rights activists), play rhythym and blues music or listen to it, be the head chef at a mexican resturaunt or practice my
religious beliefs on an indian reservation? because i'm stealing someone's culture...
you are ONLY playing race cards. culture and race are so unrelated, and biology has further eliminated the concept of race completely.
'white' culture means as much as 'black' culture. nothing. you are who you are, how you grew up, what your family celebrated, your traditions,
and then who you decided to grow up to be. that's your culture! how many of these black kids are from an african tribe or representatives of one?
not that i give a shjt either way, but probably none of them. most likely anyone who is interested in step (in this country) is so because they saw
some horrible hollywood film targeted at them, and frat$ and $orroritie$ don't really do much el$e or $erve any purpo$e academically.
anyone who protests this by saying that cultures divided themselves by skin color/race are themselves propogating that exact practice, and embracing
racism instead of defending culture. and guess what, things change. we don't really have to avoid sex during a full moon on halloween if were
afraid of giving birth to a witch or something--we all know better.
we all know better. but want to act like were on different teams still.
"the world will never change as long as everyone thinks they are right." - random speaking skull from a video game (deal with that)
this post is so divisive and hypocritical i feel gross trying to dissect it.
