Turf dancing in Oakland CA: Who those guys are!
this video is doing the rounds over here at the moment. It is an incredible demonstration on a number of levels; not least it is an example what the internet should really be about.
Arty fuckers might call it site specific performance art, White middle aged conservatives might call it threatening because it goes against all of their traditional prejudices when it comes to black youth and specifically male black youth. I just call it magical and inspiring and totally beyond criticism.
Every white adolescent in this country should watch this (all the black kids will know about it anyway); perhaps it may inspire a little more creativity and a little less indolence. Without doubt it will generate respect!
The dancers are: No Noize (red jacket), Man (black jacket), BJ (striped shirt) and Dreal.
check out YAK films online; there are more video's:
