"Blipster"

Boy do I hate that word. It is a shortened version of "black hipster" which is used to described a black person who's style is "hipster".
    They are people who listen to alternative music and like vintage things. & Don't like mainstream things. & they drink tea (according to tumblr). Being "Hipster" is actually becoming mainstream. Everyone now-a-days is trying to be different. I have absolutely no problem with that. The problem I have is with labels. Your style is your style. DO YOU. I understand that certain labels are used to easily identify people but sometimes society goes to far. If being hipster has to do with style&preference, then race has absolutely nothing to do with it. You could be Brown, Yellow, Puerto Rican, or Haitian. It doesn't matter! We are all people.
   The funniest part is that the term "Hipster" originally described white kids dressing like black jazz musicians. So when you call yourself a "Blipster", what are you? A black person trying to be black?
