    A good argument for Hood White Guy-ism. Imagine if our grandfathers had stayed put in their city neighborhoods when ONE blaq family moved in. Of course the busing push in the 70s made it all more complicated than that so I guess that wouldn't have been enough.

    I'm not even talking about blaques pushing north in Georgia, it's too cold for them in the mountains. I'm talking about these little towns are being gentrified and little boxes on the hillside made of ticky-tacky are springing up all over the place.

    My great uncle did this since the kids were already out of the house and the police found him dead in his home one day with a closed head injury. Real life Gran Torino isn't as pleasant as the fictional version. If you are going to live a hood white guy lifestyle you are adding an element of chaos to your existence that could be the end of you, no matter how much you'd like to deny it. As the nation continues to polarize things are going to heat up quickly.

    Interesting scenario played out last weekend:

    I had gotten my seasonal head-shave the weekend before. Seeing as I am now leanswole I somewhat resembled an American History X character. I was walking to my local supermaket in my little island of SWPL-dom increasingly surrounded by blaqs of varying degrees of intelligence and impulse control. Some OBESE blaq guy in his early 20s was sitting on a patio at the starbux at the corner. As I walked past he got up and cracked his knuckles. I literally thought nothing of it and walked right past within inches of him without really noticing. After I'd done so he started waddling and flusterdly talking in jive. I initially had no clue that I'd offended him with my appearance but through his unintelligible mumblings I caught "you got a lotta nerve lookin like that" "you look retarded" "tryna look hard". It was slightly unnerving but if this orc had thrown a punch I'd have been able to handle him unless he pulled a weapon.

    I remember watching an old Riff Raff interview in which some woman asked him if he'd perform at the Trump inaugration if asked, to which his response was "hell yeah bitch I love money", much to the asker's sputtering and indignation (that he disregarded completely)

    Having thought about this topic now for a few weeks, I still honestly don't see the appeal of HWG living. It's base and lowest common denominator living. The opposite of fascism in that in stoops over and reaches downward instead of a constant striving upward for transcendence.

    Depends on where you are. Yeah if you live in the Imperium of Man then being a hood white guy is despicable dirtbagism, but what if you live in neoliberal woke capital world? Success in one world is true arete while in another it's a mark of corruption.

    Being a hood white guy is also about aesthetics. Rich Piana was apex hood white guy, perhaps the finest to ever exist. He had a big house, fancy cars, rental properties, multiple businesses/investments, and a hot girlfriend, all markers of success, but he didn't have any of the bourgeois trappings or mindset. He was tatted up, never wore pants, and basically turned his body into a science project. He defied mainstream society in every way. I'm not saying you need to break out the synthol but he carved out a path and existence without any regard for what respectable people thought.

    There are many paths. Brock Lesnar for example is apex "woods white guy" where he intentionally lives in the middle of nowhere and spends pretty much every free moment hunting and fishing. To my knowledge he doesn't even own a cell phone and to contact him you have to call his wife.

    You can go in any number of directions here. It's all about finding an angle, a niche, some way you can exist and be the real you without getting on the hedonic treadmill of consumerism and the long hours of soul crushing work in a office required to keep it rolling.

    Yeah but Rich became...well, rich and ran successful businesses. He strove upwards. When I hear "hood white guy" I think complacency, white trash, and a rap sheet. I don't think "millionaire, successful businesses, and hot girlfriend."

    I get what you're saying about overcoming the trappings of the GloboHomo Gayplex but I guess I just don't understand the HWG thing. Oh well, not my thing.

    HWG has always been a lesser form of breaking away from the mold unless you can take it to the next level like Rich did. If you can't be over the top with it you're going to eventually get sucked into the lower middle class drudgery vortex.

    The brand of it I've always lusted after is the Brock Lesnar style woods white guy but after much calculation I feel like it's a path for semi-retired or otherwise supplemented guys only. The trappings and responsibilities of living in a first world country hit a woods guy harder than most (living in the hood is what mitigates this and makes HWG more possible).

    I've been trying to keep a pulse on opportunities in these communities to becomes a woods white guy when my current life situation inevitably implodes but there are major logistical hurdles unless I could somehow force my brain to come up with an internet moneymaking career/scheme to hold me over until real life opportunities arise.

    These problems are why woods white guy is at face value even easier to invest into than hood white guy, look:
