Isn't it a testament to a group's success or lack of concern what others think of them to be publicly made fun of (in a gentle way)? WASPS, main stream Jews, Hipsters, etc. probably don't care. I've been waiting for the "what do you expect from Italians" comment to pop up in the Prato thread. Good, no one is resorting to stereotypes - progress.

As food for thought - I can assure you that during the whole Watergate Scandal, RMN was never referred to as that Fu!!ing Quaker. Now SA was another story entirely.

The Jersey Journal and the author were caught red-handed perpetuating this heinous double standard... and you didn't even mention their race. Triple standard!

Food for thought. Does anyone even realize that a hipster is the 21st century version of the original "hippie" . Those hippies turned into yuppies when they finally got jobs and made a few bucks. So your damned if you were a hippie and damned when you became a yuppie because the hippies made fun of you for selling out! Ya can't win...why can't we all just get along (for fear of sounding like Rodney)! Most of todays hipsters will be tomorrows yuppies whether they like it or not. So, even though this is a meaningless post, please feel free to tell me so, call me a geaser, explain how stupid I am & explain to me how much smarter and cooler you are than I! Peace and love to all..even you hate mongers out there!

If you think everyone with tattoos, a beard, glasses, a black band shirt, flannel, vans, chucks, skateboard, fixie, docs, that is a bartender, artist, musician, etc is a hipster, then really, what's left? Please give me a definition other than this, that isn't about "living of off their parents money" because trust me, there are lots of people that fit this look, that don't need a dime from their parents, do very well for themselves and don't have to wear polo shirts or ties to work every day. Hard to believe, I know?!?

Calling someone a hipster is unoriginal, lazy, boring and hacky... Really, it's the equivalent of Donald Trump calling people he disagrees with, "stupid" and "a moron" - but ya'll prob think that's fine cause you're gonna vote for him anyway.
Calling people "hipsters" is almost satirical because said "hipsters" would never use that word, at least in the context the people here do.

Is this the "cool" kids aka "preps" of yester-year trying to take back the stage from the "misfits"? If I wear boat shoes and Nantucket red pants, where do I fit? Is that also "hipster-ish"?

Just food for thought. Don't be so closed minded.

Why did the hipster burn his mouth on Porta pizza? He ate it before it was cool.


And no, I'm not the vandal, although they're one of my fav bands.


Well said.

Nope.

Honestly, hipsterism is a never ending source of amusement to me. Think about this: a hipster is supposed to value individualism and creativity above most things, yet they all look the same, they all espouse the same ideas and philosophies, and engage in the same witty/ironic banter or talk. So, they espouse the idea of a predilection for uniqueness and creativity, but exhibit anything but that. If nothing else, all these loser hipsters only make it easier for us Gen Xers to continue to shine and achieve bigger and better things in life. And, the generation coming of age after them will lap them professionally and financially, as well. The hipster generation of today will underachieve in relation to those before and after them. Good luck with that.


Your definition of hipster is not necessarily everyone else's definition of hipster. For example, are the JC punk-wanna be Joy Division, the Cure, Depeche Mode, Smiths, etc. t-shirt wearing, all black clothing wearing, tattoos give me personality clan hipsters?


IMO, skinny jeans + scraggly beard + stupid glasses = hipster.


you going to cling to that even after the next inevitable fashion craze hits those dreaded youths?

Someone with a far more sardonic, cutting sense of humor than I should cross pollinate this post - and the one about #takeitbackjc - with this post 'Man Shot Dead in Heights - Waverly & Palisades - JJ'

In that one, we have a recent arrival to the Heights shot dead in his car on the street - by his estranged girlfriend (who lived in the Bronx). Or any of the posts about the ongoing mayhem in Greenville, for that matter. I could see the "gentrifiers' coming up with their own tag campaign, targeting the old-time (and less affluent new) residents.

My poor attempt at a joke is he's either hiding out at a bar or there is a coffee shop barista somewhere that knows where he's hiding. So yes, I used the term barista the way you described.

Not sure why people are getting annoyed with Terrance. He is a lowly writer at the JJ (no offense I'm a lowly photo editor at a entertainment magazine)
If the JJ works the same as my job, we have ZERO effing say in what we cover or any sort of rules. I get yelled at by many friends and family about covering those fucktard Kardashians, like I have any say at all, please, I'm at the mercy of the editors. With that being said, I do agree about using color. I also agree this asshole who did the spray painting should pay for the clean up and then go fuck himself with a can of PBR that he CAN'T buy at Barcade.

Terrence, does the JJ have a written policy regarding when they will mention a criminal suspect's race? You seem to be implying when there is a picture of the suspect, the article will say it. As others have mentioned, this doesn't seem accurate. But if that is your stated policy then I assume we will have consistency.


For consistency's sake I removed that he is white. I presume this will end the controversy here.
That's some mighty fine journalistic integrity right there.

Look man, leave in that he's white. And when a black guy or a hispanic guy or a white guy or an asian guy or whatever commits a crime and the cops are looking for him, include a description of the perp. That means age, weight, height, facial hair, clothes, gender, identifying marks, and race.

By removing this guy's race due to this thread you're doing everyone a disservice and making a joke of the paper you write for. Generally it's a good idea to disregard what people on this website say anyway.

In most cases, does it really matter if the alleged criminal's race is reported upon? If the description of the PoI is "a medium height black man last seen wearing a blue t-shirt and a red hat", I can't imagine that the "black man" portion of the description is really going to help law enforcement track him down via tips from the citizenry.

If there's a picture of the alleged criminal, it's a different story, but then it's a moot point. It seems like some people just like being able to say something along the lines of "look at all these black / Hmong / Latino / Samoan criminals".

The verdict was in a while ago. Sorry, we all saw right through the original story, the lame explanation, the back-pedal and the "ask my bosses" schtick. Your defenders are just overly sensitive and fall all over themselves to not offend criminals of color.
