After winning the Gold in tennis for the Womens Competition Serena Williams representing the USA did a dance around the tennis court called the "Cripp Hop or Cripp Dance. Made up and famous by a local thug low life street gang here in Compton Calif. International as well as national news agencys have reported on this. How sad,,, that a rep. of the USA has to glorify a street gang in front of millions of people. You can take the girl out of the ghetto but you can't take the ghetto out of the girl. Just another indication of where this "once" great country is going......straight down the toilet. The gold medal needs to be taken from her, and if she doesn't like that she can return to Compton, CA,,,,,and to her roots!

Question:

Was Serena advocating anything illegal, or immoral?

If I had seen it, I wouldn't have made any mental connection to the source......

If it were nothing more than an expression of joy.......well, that would be ok with me.

Being a police officer who isn't far removed from the gang culture, maybe you made the connection to something she didn't intend........

I didn't know anything about such a dance until the press reported on it. Upon further investigation there is indeed a dance or a "hop" made up by the Cripps street gang of Compton CA. If she wants to express her loyalty to a street gang let her parade around Compton CA with her fellow gang members doing her Cripp Hop along with her gold medal around her neck-so there is no doubt as to what type of person she is. Don't use the Olympics to let everyone know that you are a low life.

If this is true, we'll see the evidence. Not only would she not be showing any respect.......she certainly would have lost some respect, as well..........

I wonder if it would have gotten any coverage if it had been a German Female and she "Goose-stepped" ?

But she is wearing a red headband. Isn't that the wrong color for a crips dance? :dunno:

Not exactly a wise choice, but this dance went mainstream 20 years ago. I remember people doing this in the midwest a long time ago. Breakdancing originated in the ghettos of NY a long time ago, too.

Why would she glorify a street gang, the same one that killed her sister?

There are professionals in just about every sport in the olympics.

It might have gotten even more, especially in Germany.

Perhaps your statement is true. I am interested in your capitalization of certain letters in your post. Care to enlighten me?
