Once and awhile I will sit down and ponder in what area and era would I want to live in. I always thought I would love to live in Post World War 2 New York City, it just seemed like a fun time to live for some reason, well except for the chain smoking.
Over the years I have decided that maybe I was wrong. That maybe I really wish I could live as a black teen in the 1990s. Now I know some people are out there saying, “Why the hell would you want to do that?”
It is very simple there are three key reasons which I base off of movies from the 90s. Since I grew up in a town that had two kids of African American descent this is the only way I could come to these assumptions. And honestly, when do crappie movies steer you wrong?
1) Colorful Clothing-
I feel my wardrobe is way to drab, living as a black teen in the 90s I would totally be able to wear whatever bright color I wanted. Well except if it is blue or read if I lived in LA. Honestly I really just want an excuse to shop at the Chess King. (If you got that reference you are really old.)
2) I Would Get to Have Sex with Tisha Campbell-
Apparently if you were a teenager in the 90s and black you automatically got to have sex with Tisha Campbell. I don’t know if they flew her around in an airplane to every major city and had to ice her vagina overnight but if you were in a movie during that time period Tisha Campbell was the girl you were banging.
3) I Could Dance Like Kid N Play-
I didn’t know that all house parties in the 90s ended in a dance off where you could do cool moves like this:
Before the dance off became the only way to settle disputes among African American youths it was just a way to cap off a house party, the pressure was a lot less on the kids back them. They weren’t getting served or shit like that.
So as you can see if I could choose to live anywhere during anytime I would be a black teen in the 90s…
If you could choose any time and place you could live, when and where would it be?
