Hip Hop is an art form that includes deejaying cuttin' & scartchin' emceeing/rappin', break dancing and graffiti art. These art forms as we know them today originated in the South Bronx section of New York City around the mid 1970s. Hip Hop has thrived within the subculture of Black and Puerto Rican communities in New York and is now just recently beginning to enjoy widespread exposure. From a sociological perspective, Hip Hop has been one of the main contributing factors that helped curtail gang violence due to the fact that many adults found it preferable to channel their anger and aggressions into these art forms which eventually became the ultimate expression of one's self.more...

The name "The Black Wall Street" is adopted from the historical Black community of Tulsa Oklahoma. The date was June 1, 1921, when "Black Wall street," the name fittingly given to one of the most affluent all-black communities in America, was bombed from the air and burned to the ground. In a period spanning fewer than 12 hours, a once thriving 36-black business district in northern Tulsa lay smoldering. A model community destroyed, and a major Black economic movement resoundingly defused.

Catalonia (Catalunya) is one of the 17 autonomic communities which nowadays constitute Spain.
It is usually recognized for its language, Catalan, spoken by more than 8 milion people around the world.
Catalonia is one of the first most important centers from the first Neolithic in the Occidental Mediterranean, so as from the second.
It sufered the invation of the Greeks in the fifth century (BC) and the romans in the 3d century (BC) which represented big social movements; the muslim invasion and so.
It was a well known independent kingdom till the XIV century, when it took part in the spanish empire. And finally in the XVII and XVIII century, La guerra de sucesión (the succession war) finished with the political independence of Catalonia.
Nowadays Catalonia still has its culture, language, monuments, humor and people...being so diferent from the spanish.
But yeah, I guess it doesn't deserve being recognized independent, after all, spaniards got here first, right?
Catalunya is a good place to live
Before, describing the world of Baltimore (Baltimore Prep/North Baltimore) it is important to make several key descriptions about the physical and geographical layout of Maryland and more importantly Baltimore City and County. First and foremost, contrary to other parts of the nation the idea of town or township does not exist. In other words, Baltimore County is not broken down into a series of townships each with their own mayor and municipal services. Instead, the area of Baltimore County is broken down into neighborhoods or communities outside and surrounding the city of Baltimore. In addition many of these areas are not separated by vast areas of fields or forests but are actually connected to each other. Baltimore communities can be described as liquid, flowing into each other with no clear distinction. Such distinctions are only made for reasons like providing area codes and rec. councils. In addition no one from these communities say that they are from these areas; everyone says that they are from Baltimore. However, if one Baltimorean is conversing with another Baltimorean about where they live then these area names become applicable. Those who attend private schools are the by-products of the school and of the area they live in.more...
Baltimore County, while containing a decent population, does not have the markings of a densely populated area. Most of the communities are fairly forested and would resemble the distant suburbs of many other metropolitan areas. Theref...
|61.||urban red neck|
Although the idea of an Urban Redneck would at first seem an oxymoron, they do exist and are actually quite common. There are basically three different kinds of Urban Rednecks.more...
1) The Transplanted Redneck is found in urban centers all over the world. His job or his dreams have forced him to leave his native community in search of new opportunities. The Transplanted Redneck remains true to himself and his culture, despite immersion in the urban landscape. A transplanted redneck, or pair of rednecks, may raise a family in the city and retain their redneck characteristics for several generations.
2) The Poser is found all over North America, but is especially concentrated in cities in the Southern United States, Nevada and Utah. These individuals may have no Redneck roots, or even be a transplanted Yankee, but either seek acceptance in their new homes, or have vastly distorted perceptions of the social norms in their adopted communities. The Urban Cowboy phenomenon that started in the 1980s is characterized by individuals in full country & western garb, that have never even been near a horse.
3) The Postmodern Redneck is also found all over North America. The Postmodern Redneck may, or may not, have Redneck roots. As opposed to "The Poser", the Postmodern Redneck has experienced a philosophical transformation in which he rejects modernism and urbanity, in favor of simpler more genuine way of life. The Postmodern Redneck is often an educated professional who owns guns...
A youth culture indigenous to the city of Östersund in Norrland, Sweden.
A busstorger is most easily identified by their choice of clothing based on various hiphop brands, such as Wu Wear, South Pole, Fubu et. c.
The music part of the culture is represented by the latest rap videos on MTV and ZTV.
Gang colors is neither red nor blue, it is white, which is the common color of their skin just like most swedes. What separates these youths from the rest is their souls, which is the color black. Basically, the busstorgers are blacks trapped in the bodies of swedes.
Although the greatest inspiration of their living is based on american ghetto culture some nazis, bönder and punk rockers has made it into the central core of the group. What most of them have in common is that they all come from small villages and communities outside from Östersund. The group recruites new members by controlling gates where the busses arrive and pick an easy prey to absorb in the "gang".
Smoking, drinking and drugs is a normal way of living i.e. no inhaling down to the lung, just mouth, no beer, just cider and hashish and ecstacy and getting a bad trip, get caught and having to go do piss tests and meatings at the social office.
When I don't bursking around with the snow mobile I hang at the busstorg in Östersund with all the other busstorgare and inhale smoke into the mouth!
A male lesbian is a physiologically heteosexual male who wishes he'd been born a girl. He feels alienated by the social standards of gender roles. He may be a crossdresser or consider himself transgendered, but he is probably not transsexual. His ideal would be to be able to be his feminine self in a relationship with a biological female. If he is open about this, he may be ridiculed by both the gay and straight communities.
I don't know; maybe Prince is a male lesbian.
