In Black Run America (BRA), a not-so-secret desire by white kids is to emulate their Black overlords in dress, mannerisms, vernacular and style.
White kids in BRA have an intense desire to Act Black and find scant opposition from members of their own race when they mimic the nuisances and idiosyncrasies of Black people, whereas when Black people dare to Act White they betray their people and are forever excommunicated with no indulgences available to pay for this shameful sin.
Through the medium of popular culture, BRA has gained a footing in the whitest of whitopia's and Black culture now permeates in suburban schools devoid of Black people yet full of white people attempting to ape the mores their favorite sports stars, gangsta rappers and film heroes.
Constantly bombarded with images of Black people excelling at the most insignificant and inane activities leaves white kids psychological denuded and incapable of rationalizing a world where sports were devoid of the flash of Chad Ocho Cinco or any of the National Basketball Association (NBA) stars.
In a world turned upside down by the efforts of Disingenuous White Liberals (DWLs) to label anything with more than one white participant inherently racist, all white people are forced to walk atop egg shells and guard their speech lest they be suspected of harboring views that are contrary to the ruling orthodoxy of BRA.
Thus another reason white people have given up and resorted to displaying tendencies that were once reserved for the ghetto-dwelling inhabitants of Pre-Obama America. White people borrow liberally from Black people, ditching belts for the more fashionable display of boxer shorts. Pants on the ground is a shared characteristic of both Black and white people now.
Although the use of the term "Nigga" is prohibited by white people, enforcing measures to stop them from saying this word is futile and greatly unnecessary. Any people who have the ability to force white people to lock their car doors when they appear are obviously in complete control of the nation.
One film was instrumental in endearing Black culture to white people, most of which have rarely interacted with Black people in real life save for the aborted trip to the mall that once was frequented by white people.
That movie? Friday staring Ice Cube and Chris Tucker:
The film is a look at one particular day (Friday) in the life of two friends, Craig Jones ( Ice Cube) and Smokey ( Chris Tucker), in urban Los Angeles. Straight-laced Craig has recently been fired from his job while attempting to collect his wages (he was allegedly caught on camera stealing boxes), although he claims innocence. Exacerbating his dilemma, his parents (John Witherspoon and Anna Maria Horsford) are threatening to evict him from the family home unless he quickly finds new employment.This 1995 film has a trance like effect on white people and though life in the ghetto (the film takes place in Compton) isn't as warm, fuzzy and fun as the film Friday might depict, the odd appeal of a world inhabited with the constant irritation of impending death by a hail of gunfire is a curiously exciting prospect that grips white kids and doesn't let go.
Meanwhile, Craig has been eyeing comely, pretty neighbor Debbie (Nia Long), but his insanely jealous, ghetto-fabulous girlfriend Joi (Paula Jai Parker) is a formidable obstacle (ironically, an unidentified man was seen in Joi's bed in the beginning of the film, while she was arguing with Craig on the phone).
We have discussed the strange phenomenon of peaceful Block Parties at SBPDL, an infrequent occurrence in the Black community despite the high frequency of Block Parties held within the Black community.
What happens when white kids try and hold a Block Party in the theme of a Compton Cookout amongst themselves? Well, sometimes imitation isn't the most sincere form of flattery but the flat out most racist and bigoted form:
SAN DIEGO -- Officials at UC San Diego are condemning a ghetto-themed party organized by fraternity students to mock Black History Month.We have discussed Fraternity Halloween Parties and the shameful pattern of dressing up in Black face or worse costumes that offend Black people in Black Run America (BRA) and were shocked to learn Jiggaboo Jones was behind the San Diego Compton Cookout, for he is a Black person!
A Facebook posting advertising Monday's 'Compton Cookout' invited people to a condominium complex off-campus.
The invitation urged all participants to wear chains, rapper-style urban clothing by makers such as FUBU and speak very loudly.
Female participants were encouraged to be "ghetto chicks" with gold teeth, cheap clothes and "short, nappy hair."
The invitation said the party would serve watermelon, chicken, malt liquor, cheap beer and a purple sugar-water concoction called "dat Purple Drank."
The party was organized by members of several UCSD fraternities, according to an e-mail from Gary Ratcliff, assistant vice chancellor for student life.
UCSD Chancellor Marye Anne Fox called the party, "offensive" and a "blatant disregard of our campus values."
"We reject acts of discrimination ... and we will confront and appropriately respond to such acts," Fox said.
These type of events - the harmless dressing up and imitating Black people - showcase the raw power of BRA at its most dominant hegemony over the minds and wills of all people who reside in America, for Black people use the events to demand more extreme measures to be codified into law:
We demand a response too at SBPDL!!! Compton Cookouts have occurred throughout the land, thanks to white people and their love of the movie Friday and the joy they garner from partaking in pantomiming Black people at events they hold in their honor.

Black Run America is a simple concept. The furor over Compton Cookouts showcase this ability to shame white people into the corner with the dunce cap of racist is but a small sampling of what life is like in BRA.
Yet, we remind those in BRA that those who can see only grow in ranks when events like this happen.
Stuff Black People Don't Like includes Compton Cookouts as the attempts by white kids to entertain fantasies of acting Black go to far when they dare dress in the same accoutrements of Black people and eat soul food and listen to rap music.
That type of activity is never present at a Black party!
