Just a little observation and query. Yesterday, on our street corner, where the elegant piano maker’s shop is, I saw their delivery boy–a blonde, blue-eyed young Austrian–wearing this hoodie. I am just fascinated by this. What on earth does this signify to him? He may be from a poorer, less educated family, maybe some drinking and/or abuse, but he is in no way disenfranchised, he’s working, he seemed to be communicating quite well with the workers in the shop. I just want to know what this emblem of American black street culture signifies for him, and other young white Europeans who I have seen wearing similar gear. What is its fascination for them? Danger? The buzz of violence? Derring do? Rebellion in general?
