...and there is big controversy with regard to the dance and its origin. Many feel she should apologize.
What are your thoughts?

@nqyringmind,
My thoughts are: Are they kidding?

This is rather nicer than the common emotional reaction of falling flat to the grass, or similar.

@ossobuco,
I can't find a problem in there, either.

@ossobuco,
It's the Crip walk, popularized by the gang of the same name in Oakland.

@Lash,
Hmm, is there a Bloods gang there too? And do they have a dance?

@Lash,
Young folks picked up on this dance and it became somewhat of a craze about a decade ago. Does this change anyone's opinion?

@nqyringmind,
The only opinions I see so far have been favorable. Why would they change?

@ossobuco,
Hmmm. I suppose you'll have to google for an answer. I don't know if the Bloods have disbanded or have a dance.

@Lash,
I doubt they've disbanded... more like expanded, but I haven't been following lately.

@Lash,
That's my point. She has received quite a bit of criticism for doing the "Crip Walk", for dancing on such an occasion, for dancing on Wimbledon grounds...

@nqyringmind,
You left that out of your information. I assumed many people would have no reason why some found her dance offensive.

@nqyringmind,
Is any kind of dancing acceptable at Wimbledon?

If yes, then this is fine.

If not, <shrug>.



I didn't know everyone at work was a crip. I'll keep that in mind for the next party and hide in the bathroom Laughing

@Lash,
Are you kidding, Lash? The Cripes would do a dance like that? Get out of here.

@Irishk,
Yep! Now you're going to have to change your name to something like "Killa Irish" or how about Irishk Dawg!

I very much doubt a Crip would be caught dead wearing a red headband. That color belongs to the Bloods. Maybe "caught dead" was a poor choice of words. Some people take the difference between Red and Blue seriously.
