AFROPUNK

... the other Black experience

im not serious about this, but i do think that a lot of people spend too much time trying to tell people what is punk and what is not punk. What happened to just doin your own thang? why does it always boil down to whether someone is punk or not, and why do ppl try to live to these outrageous standards? if you are of a different religion or sexuality do that because you want to or because you can relate to it. Not because it makes you look more punk. be yourself.

I understand what you are trying to say but theyre is a difference today between afro-punks and punks. I do not personally complain about the site but i do understand why people would. Most people on the site today arent "punk" but are just alternative to stereotypical black culture. This dilutes the term "afro-punk".

Also what you say is completely wrong. I understand you were exaggerating but you need to learn a little something. Alot of the punk stereotypes are completely false. Have you ever heard of the band Rancid. They are very successful and still punk. So are alot of punk bands that blew up in the 90s.

 

Overally most people on this site arent punk but that isnt really the focus of the site anymore. Afro punk has become more about not being a stereotype than being punk. I think you do not have a true understanding of what the border between these things are.

 

Being yourself is good but people should always try to be the best they can be. Learning and changing is a part of life. If that means going vegetarian to save animals lives then do it. If you dont then you are kind of making a fucked decision.

 

Punk is not really prevalent on this site. Afro punk is another kind of term. Real afro-punk lies within the James Spooner film Afro-Punk.

 

Everyone saying this shit is not punk but you from the looks of it you are Afro-punk. Punk is a lifestyle. I agree when you say people shouldnt try to be something theyre not but really punk is about doing what you want to do. And theyre are different branches and categories of punk for everyone. You just have to find yours and be smart about it.

I agree with everything said in this video (5stars). When I first joined the Vampirefreaks site a few years ago I became the same exception to the rule of "What is Goth". Last I remember Gothic music has been known for being Dark, Underground, and the anti-pop alternative. Hop-hop has become so watered down and micro-waved that I'm not surprised more Black aren't rebelling against it. Be yourself and what agree's with your own lifestyle at the end of the day.

Your video remind of the whole Goth debate that I've seen on other sites. What classifies as Goth. I'm like really?
I agree with Matthew.
