You Got Served

In my mood of questionable humor, I find this piece utterly hilarious.

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — One person required stitches and a mother and son were arrested after a brawl broke out during an impromptu "dance off," Wichita police said.

"This is a whole new arena" of crime, said Wichita police Lt. Jeff Easter.

The Dynamic Steppers, a Wichita drill team, were practicing routines Saturday night when members of another drill team called the White Tigers showed up and challenged the others to a "dance-off," police said.

When the challengers appeared to be losing, a woman struck a 17-year-old Dynamic Steppers drummer in the face with a drumstick, Easter said.

The teen, who had left the White Tigers to join the Dynamic Steppers, punched the 28-year-old woman in the face. He then ran toward his Ford Explorer and tried to run over spectators, witnesses told police.

Life really does imitate art all too often.

Yeah, KJita asked to do tap lessons, but I think it is just too dangerous.

Midnight basketball would have helped this situation.

Well now there you go again... marginalizing these young people and treating them as Other. You really need to try to understand hip-hop culture KJ - it's the fresh, def rhythm of the streets, which you in your narrow little insular button-down, suburban car-pool, mocha latte-with-a-twist world just can't begin to appreciate.

Where is your humanity?

I'll have you know I was listening to Grand Master Flash and The Furious Five when I was junior high school in rural Kentucky. There was no appreciation among my lighter skin friends.

Do there ain't no doubtin' my street cred.

Sadly, that was the last good rap group.
