To live dangerously, it has been said, is the secret for harvesting from existence the greatest fruitfulness and the greatest enjoyment.
Have a collective people ever lived more dangerously than Black people? Happiness studies have been conducted that show 6 of the 10 states with the happiest population coincidentally happen to be in the geographic area that contains 54 percent of the nations Black population – the Southeast (Florida, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Tennessee and South Carolina) – and it is in this study that proof of Nietzsche instruction for a happy life is validated.
You see, happiness also mandates that you live a full life full of “positive psychology”, one that deemphasizes people’s weakness and instead highlights only strengths and positives:
“The happiest people surround themselves with family and friends, don't care about keeping up with the Joneses next door, lose themselves in daily activities and, most important, forgive easily.”
With Hate Facts in mind, Black people have secured for themselves the ultimate win-win psychology, “positive psychology”, which validates the entire concept of “get rich or die trying” attitude which runs pervasive throughout the dangerously living Black community (hate facts merely point out inconvenient weaknesses, while accentuating the positives – such as athletic ability – deflects the shocking shortfall in Nobel Prizes).
Living dangerously is also incorporated into the absolute breathtakingly audacious outfits that young Black women create for their big night at the High School Prom.
Everyone has memories of the prom from school: ranging from the bad tuxedo your best friend wore; to the moment your eyes got their first glimpse of your date looking resplendent in a dress that graced her womanly form as if it had been tailored by the Gods; the insane amounts of alcohol smuggled into the limo and consumed without fear of the consequences, and, lest we forget, the promise of losing that which you could never get back.
Nevertheless, Black people – for reasons that can’t be explained away by socioeconomics nor for lack of availability of fabric – create outfits for prom that baffle the puritanical sensibilities of white people everywhere. Remembering that Black people don’t like jokes at their own expense, it is quickly established that Black people are merely living dangerously by daring to point a middle-finger at the virtuous dress codes of normalcy established by the white power structure for prom night.
For, Black people find no shame in appearing in public adorned with outfits that appear to be created from the combined fertile imaginations of Helen Keller and Ray Charles.
Thus, living dangerously in the face of white enforced Prom decency in accoutrements is the only plausible explanation for the gowns worn by Black women and the suits by Black men to their proms.
“Marche Taylor's custom-made prom dress left her spending her prom night in a Houston area jail. The school stopped Taylor from entering her prom at the lobby when they deemed her skimpy prom dress as a violation of the school's dress code, according to www.khou.com.
Taylor tried to argue her way into the prom. It was this argument that lead to the police being called. Taylor was then lead away in handcuffs to spend the rest of her prom night in jail. She stated that the school only gave her two choices go home or go to jail. She chose jail.”
“Pretty in Pink” is the film that best defines the importance of prom (one could argue American Pie as well), but these movies are devoid of any Black people, and with good reason. The risqué outfits that outlandishly decorate the never passing on seconds bodies of Black people would be seen as incredibly racist by viewers of these films, if Black people were cast. Ignorant of the reality of Black prom dresses the general public would be, and thus, these fine films – had they included Black people in prom dress – would be racist.
Stuff Black People Don’t Like includes the fuss over ghetto prom dresses, for Black people are incredibly happy in their homemade prom outfits and only through living dangerously by having one continuous wardrobe malfunction at their prom can this occur.
Interestingly, the film "Pretty in Pink" denouement revolves around a white girl from the "wrong side of the tracks" making her own prom dress. See for yourself the results, accompanied with the powerful love ballad "If You Leave" from OMD.
