Crip Walk Dance: Does It Belong At The Olympics?
[ Life]

The Crip Walk. It’s a dance move that originated in the 1970s from the infamous Crip gang. It has since taken on some mainstream popularity, but its origins have never truly been forgotten. That’s why the response has been divided ever since the dance has entered the Olympic stage.

Serena Williams, star tennis player, was the second woman to earn a career Golden Slam in Singles according to E! Online. She is also the first woman to earn the Golden Slam in singles and doubles. Add on the fact that she won the gold in Singles at the Olympics and you can see why she was so excited. That excitement is what led to her becoming the first person to reportedly perform the Crip Walk at the Olympics.

While some people feel that the dance disrespects the Olympic spirit, most of the response from the viewership has been nothing but positive. Even Snoop Dogg Lion congratulated Williams on the win and the dance:

The other responses on Twitter were just as supportive:

    I believe that people need to shut up and let her enjoy her win. People need to understand that just because she danced the crip dance she did nothing wrong.
    What if she did the moon walk then you hates would say something bad about Michael Jackson.
    Stop hating on her.

    To ALL YOU HATERS “DID YOUR MOMS TEACH YOU THAT IF YOU DON’T HAVING NOTHING NICE TO SAY DON’T SAY ANYTHING AT ALL”!!!!!!!!!!

      calm down. Nobody hate Serena. STOP EXAGGERATING! She simply should not represent our country doiing a dance directly associated with a low class ghetto street criminal organizations. It’s just that simple. Nothing more or nothing less. Nobody hates Serena. Get that out of your exaggerating head.

      Any self-respecting person of color who is educated and has successfully climbed out of Compton, like myself, would never do a Crip Dance on national television representing the United States of America. This is coming from an African American college graduate, not from some angry white person. Thank You.
