    A bit has been personal experience, just the general change in the feel of a room when a minority walks into it. I'm a minority myself and am attuned to the little social cues that pop up, and I catch it when I'm in Williamsburg or Park Slope on weekends. It's when you know you're going to be that "I have an Indian friend/Arabic friend" in someone's future stories when you've only met the person for an evening or two.

    For a less personal anecdote, I would point to the controversies surrounding the Prime 6 hip hop club in Park Slope and the rap ban in Savalas. Basically it's non-native New Yorkers, the majority white, who have moved to western Brooklyn in recent years and gentrified it to the point where they're essentially pushing anyone not like them.

    You're not meant to wear socks with deck shoes. They're for the deck--as in boat(which is why they're also called boat shoes), and wearing socks on a boat or at the beach would be silly. The problem is you're not meant to wear deck shoes off of the deck(but then, that's how fashion works--by assimilating functional apparel and making it trendy instead).

    I don't like that new beard coverer thingy that people wear when it's cold out. I see people wearing it around campus even when it's 50 out.

    Considering the source, not exactly credible.

    And I am ok with not knowing enough hipsters to have anecdotes to explain it. :p

    Jezebel has plenty of issues. There was a hell of an uproar last year when they posted screencaps from a video of rape - this article discusses it.

    The article Ender posted, as has been pointed out by a bunch of people, isn't really a great summary of hipster racism. Sure, it has good points and covers a lot of the big stuff, but it's not informative or persuasive for anyone who doesn't already know about hipster racism, and probably wasn't the best response to the question "what is hipster racism?"

    It does, but the legit issues aren't usually the ones detractors bring up. It's kind of like people who complain about President Obama.

    I was just addressing Jello's out of character wide-eyed naivete that Jezebel might not be infallible.

    I was just talking with my daughter and she told me I'm a hipster. From the food I eat to the music I listen too. I can only hope she's teasing as I've only heard negative things of them. :(

    I don't see what's so bad about being a hipster. I'm a hipster and proud of it.








    ... Hipster still means "person into jazz music," right?

    I'm not into jazz.

    So one of us is not. It must be me.

    Phew!

    I'm pretty sure you can't be, as I get the impression you like things in a very sincere manner.
