Self-respect permeates every aspect of your existence. If you don't have respect for yourself, you're not gonna get it from anyone else."

Socially speaking, because he was on TMZ posing for a camera. National exposure of our hero is always exciting for a Chiefs fan. Less so when he looks like a clown.

Psychologically speaking, how people behave in public is probably a good indication of their personalities. Personalities do much to influence a work ethic. The personality and work ethic of a hero would be of concern to a Chiefs fan. Plus, he totally looks like a dude that beats chicks. Don't tell me I have to disclaimer that joke.

Feminally speaking, grown men are just like grown women. Gossip mongering whores, the lot of them.

Inquisitivly speaking, is there an outfit Larry Johnson could wear that would make you look askance at him?

Matters not to me.
He's no more or less important because he made his way onto a smut journalism site.

I seriously doubt it. Larry Johnson is his own man.
His apparel choices are of no consequence to me.

Futhermore, who is to say what is and isn't appropriate or acceptable fashionably speaking?

I think a lot of this has to do with the attitudes toward certain cultures that some are incapable of identifying with.

Fashion by definition is culturally defined as what is popular. A skirt is just a skirt until society deems it cute, then it becomes fashion.

So we get to say.

And if the latter is in reference to the American Urban Black Male attire, thats crap. The outfit isn't culturally significant to the hood, to hunting, or to good taste anywhere.

It's celeb voyeurism and it's the very reason why TMZ exists.

LMAO
Who made you the arbiter of what is culturally significant to any culture other than your own?

Again, it's your own personal opinion of the man's attire. That's largely rooted in how disaffected you are from the culture that welcomes and characterizes that style of dress as "normal".

Are you able to comment on how this outfit might be significant?

Is Larry, who grew up in an middle to upper-middle class suburb able to comment? Isn't that more the point?

With regard to either, I'd be interested in hearing how this outfit is culturally significant, but I don't think Larry, himself, has any credibility in this regard. Thus the mocking.

Larry Johnson was born and raised in the U.S. He's a part of my culture. Just because he's black doesn't mean he's so drastically different from me. I've been known to beat a bitch.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, I've watched the men iron creases into their jeans since long before I could walk. And they did it without looking like absolute idiots. And they did it while totally existing in MY culture.

It's significant because it's an extension of Hip Hop culture and the fashionable expression that accompanies it.

Is Larry, who grew up in an middle to upper-middle class suburb able to comment? Isn't that more the point?

This is why you're about as qualified to critique his expression as you are to sit on a panel with Quantam Physicists. Kanye West grew up every bit as Middle Class as Larry Johnson did. This idea that such fashionable expression is only authentic when expressed by the lower class is silly.

With regard to either, I'd be interested in hearing how this outfit is culturally significant, but I don't think Larry, himself, has any credibility in this regard. Thus the mocking.

Culture is defined by the attitudes, tastes, and behaviors favored by a particular group.

A part of American culture? Certainly, but let's not pretend that there aren't other cultures within American culture that are every bit as significant. Sub-cultures that you may not identify with.

Just because he's black doesn't mean he's so drastically different from me.

Fair enough, but the fact that the two of you both grew up in America doesn't necessarily make you a-alikes either.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, I've watched the men iron creases into their jeans since long before I could walk. And they did it without looking like absolute idiots. And they did it while totally existing in MY culture.

That particular phenomenon is easily 15 years old by now.

I'm certain that he's losing sleep over what people think of his choice in fashion.

And this is coming from a person who would never wear that outfit either.

My point is simply, who cares?

Sigh. You just like to argue. I don't really care if you liked the creasing, it was what was popular. Black Urban American Men made it so.

So. What subculture am I missing? I grew up with Hip Hop and Breaking. I went through a hockey player spell so there was much Heavy Metal and Rock. My parents were Parrot Heads, so I can hang with the hippies. Played with strippers who spend their days being as Pop as possible.

The point I'm making is that it's one opinion. And while your opinion is valid it does not supercede all of the opinions available that may differ from it.

That's precisely where this form of fashionable expression is derived from.

But when you listen to the lyrics from a Jay-Z album, don't you see some similarities with how Larry tries to present himself and the "struggles" he's been through in his life?

I'm just curious and am in no way trying to start an argument, but do you believe that being a part of one culture, in this case, the black culture, that it should define you? Doesn't it bother you to lump everyone into one category? I'm really not trying to be argumentative, I am really honestly curious. I get frustrated when people try to equate me with all women, as if we are all alike... isn't it fair to say that perhaps Larry Johnson is a man all his own, apart from the black "gangsta" (for lack of a better word and to use the one that's already being thrown around) culture and perhaps him trying to be that man conflicts with this "culture" you are equating him with, hence this hideous outfit?

Culture defines us all.
I identified Hip Hop culture though. Not Black culture.
Which aren't exactly a 1:1. They overlap, but are still distinct circles.

I get frustrated when people try to equate me with all women, as if we are all alike...

I'm wondering where I did that?

How does that equate to all of Hip Hop let alone Black culture?

Why does such a distinction need to be made?
Larry Johnson or the guy two doors down... This form of fashionable expression is absolutely derived from Hip Hop culture. That can't even be argued.

And again, if you think the outfit is hideous you're entitled...
But I'm certain you own something that he'd think was hideous.

Like I said, not trying to be argumentative, it just seems you have a different take on the subject. The woman thing was just meant as an example, not something I thought you had done.

My point is that just because he is a part of hip hop culture as you call it, does not mean that this outfit doesn't represent some disconnect he has with that culture. Maybe he doesn't quite pull it off because he's not as closely connected to hip hop as he'd like to be. Maybe he's a part of that culture, but his own individuality clashes with it as well?

My point is that just because he is a part of hip hop culture as you call it, does not mean that this outfit doesn't represent some disconnect he has with that culture.

Occam's Razor Jilly.

Maybe he doesn't quite pull it off because he's not as closely connected to hip hop as he'd like to be. Maybe he's a part of that culture, but his own individuality clashes with it as well?

There's nothing to pull off.
That's pretty standard dress for Hipsters these days.
I've seen this look a million times over.

It just doesn't ring true for you. And that's because you don't identify with the culture itself. And that's okay, but call a spade a spade... Sheesh!

Yeah you're right.

Couldn't have been her failure to see the distinction between Hip Hop and Black cultures that has me leads me to believe she's disaffected.

Or the fact that she thinks he's struggling to pull the look off.

Or the fact she thinks his attire represents a disconnect with the culture that it's derived from.

Actually, I do. I grew up the only white kid on my baseball team until I was 13. My best friend is mexican and two of my travel partners are black. Just because a celebrity (white or black) wears something, doesn't bring any culture to the attire. LJ has just mixed up his Garanimals. He's mixing 3,4,5 cultures into one. Is he a hunter, a trucker, a hip-hop star, a lumberjack?

I might not understand cultures, but I can recognize them and accept them. I can't recognize what he wants to be.

BTW...I never understood the skinny jeans either. I like the clacker on my bell to have breathing room:D

But if that doesn't convince you, I barely typed "red laces" into google. and a whoooooole bunch of crap popped up. "red laces racist" "red laces white supremacist"

Flat out bad, nothing good, and I've seen plenty of hip-hop influenced clothing that looks good. The attached may be the worst I've ever seen together, (on the same being.) Now, p-diddy and others can pull certain things off, generally because they're conservatively fresh and not going for the 'Shocking' 'HERE I AM' 'Look AT ME' look. You can look silky-smooth in certain H H-gear, but this isn't an example of that. Sorry...

Red laces means he's a wannabe Blood, or a wannabe White Supremacist.

Just because you wear red laces doesn't mean you want to be a blood.

Just because you wear red laces doesn't mean you want to be a blood.But if it has anything to do with being a Gooner fan, that might be worse.
