"A man curses..."

"... because he doesn't have the words to say what's on his mind" is a favorite quote of mine from Spike Lee's Malcolm X (1992), which serves as an epigram to this story — Spike Lee's 7-Minute Rant About The 'Motherf*cking Hipsters' Gentrifying Brooklyn.

It's a long-running and, I find, hilarious debate - especially from where I sit.

Thankfully, my neck of the woods is still as much "real Brooklyn" as one can get.

It's fun to watch the hipsters and yuppies and everyone else fight it out. Basically, it's one type of liberal fighting against another.

This video showcases the mentality at play:

Now, I guess Dennis Hammill can indeed rightfully wax nostalgically about drinking Buds from wax paper cups at Farrell's. Still, I'm happy with craft beer, myself.
