I loved it so much. I grew up in a small white town, and am at the whitest university in my country, and sometimes it's easy to fall into the, I think, quite recent stereotype, that all black guys dress like rappers in horrible baggy clothes. It's like, with the knowledge in the back of my head that there is also a sort of stereotype that black guys are naturally stylish, it doesn't usually come out in my thoughts. I feel like this post sounds weird and racist, if I was asked point blank if I thought black guys dressed badly I'd probably say "no" but if I were asked point blank about how I would describe a black guy's manner of dress yesterday, I'd probably have said "Baggy jeans, baggy hoodie, nikes." or something along those lines. I feel like if you asked me that today or tomorrow I'd have a much less discriminatory response. So, while I hope this post doesn't open me up to any sort of hate or anything, you've made someone a little more conscious of the negative stereotypes they didn't even know they had, and helped to erase them.

I get what Listi is saying. I live in a city that's become predominantly black. The average teen or twentysomething dresses as Listi describes. I try not to draw generalizations about people based on their clothes, but with that predominance of style, it is easy to forget that there are plenty of young black men who dress with the elegance of Josh and his crew.

I think this needs to be said twice, as it's a problem with so many otherwise well put together blogs.

I'm floored by the responses you guys have gave it really made the hard work of putting together this thing pay off extensively. I think the what we wanted to do is simply inspire not differentiate cultures , ethnicities or anything alike. And we definitely did that thanks guys

Just left my comment on the blog. Even though it was inspired from Black History Month, I felt like it spoke to all minorities, which was awesome. It made you feel like you were apart of it even if you were on the outside looking in. A+ work!

Well, as a full-blown whitey, I just really liked the emphasis of looking back to look forward, finding inspiration, etc., etc. I know lots of people around here do that to find and create their own style, but seeing it done so blatantly with such incredible results was just great.
