"Your part of the problem, pushing a narrative that furthers the divide and is not inclusive."
Yesterday it was revealed, here, that surfing and surf culture had, against all odds, reached a heretofore unimaginable level of whiteness with the release of country superstar Luke Bryan’s music video “Waves.”
Per the piece:
Social science has long held, as fact, that surfing and surf culture reached peak whiteness in the early 1980s with no possible, or probable, way to grow any whiter as it shifted from “snow” to “baby powder.” Shot on location in Malibu, (the video) features two young surfers who fall in love after an extreme wipeout. They proceed to play games on the pier, canoodle under the fireworks and eat many tasty treats (all while country superstar Luke Bryan croons a stevia-sweetened tune).
BeachGrit tourists, who swing by now and again, were not pleased.
Michael J. Blue countered, “Geez your just a little racist, get a life.”
Clawdad piled on, “Idiotic article! I wonder how all the beautiful Hawaii, Brazilian, Fijian and the rest of the non white surfing world feel about your stupid article. Your part of the problem, pushing a narrative that furthers the divide and is not inclusive.”
Entirely understandable but…. Luke Bryan is an undeniable magnetic force, his song of love without loss inspirational.
Is it just a little racist to think beautiful Hawaii, Brazilian, Fijian surfers would not agree?
More as the story develops.
