UBM I don't know what to say. show ne your "booty hole". America culture have already hit the skid. They look like they were just acting silly.

Yep, JJ... and now the whole world can watch! I hope one of them doesn't run for president one day. Somebody might find this video.

All the comments are "hittin" as we used to say in DC. But there are a lot of kids who won't be able to run for county dog-catcher, much less President, if these videos pop up when they are adults.

It reminds of some song called Crank That Souljah Boy that was hot recently. It is an ode to masturbation, but I heard many white kids requested it at parties.

These same kids will have teenagers 30 years from now and will probably try to ban them from listening to whatever trash is out then.

What's the old saying...Do as I say not as I do.

^ Hittin' and stickin' like Popeyes chicken!

By the way, Cal, this particular track ("Show Me Your Booty Hole") is by a white rock band, Saosin. I had never heard of it before. But this ain't the only video on YouTube with white chicks singing along.

Lord, I am SO damn glad I was a teen in the '90s without YouTube to egg me on! My foolishness is on decaying VHS tapes and in old sparkly diaries with rainbows on them...on lockdown.

At least the British girl in the last butt shaking video you posted had the sense not to show her face.

It would help if these two dippy chicks had a booty to shake.

I am starting to wonder if there is just as much influence from porn culture these days as there is with "Rap,Crunk,Booty Culture".

I refuse to call it Hip-Hop culture as I remember and respect that.

It is a shame to see the youth of today degrading and devaluing themselves,no matter how entertaining and sometimes titillating it can be.

I guess I have turned into the old man on the porch,shaking his fist and yelling"get off my lawn you damn kids!".

Perhaps I'm just jealous that when I was 16,we only had one girl per school/neighborhood like this.
The terms for her were not complimentary,but that didn't stop many from going on a "hit it and quit it" mission.

Of course, that is also the way that many people my age we not only introduced to sex,but also this little thing called AIDS.

Same as it ever was...

So are we only looking at the cultural skid angle because these are two middle class white girls? There are a lot of videos on YouTube that could have been posted under this title a year or two ago, but the kids were Black and/or Latino. Am I being overly sensitive?

dj said...

No,I think this video would have the same impact regardless,as it is more about their age than their shade.
However the fact that they can't really sing or dance,makes it stand out even more.

Nunaoni: I've pointed the finger elsewhere in the past. (Like this.)

NunaOni said...

Ahh I take it back. FWIW I don't think that the Japanese Nigga video is offensive at all... esp the chick and waffles reference lol.

^ ... esp the chick and waffles reference lol.

Hee-hee...
