Valid reasons to hate hipsters--from the nyhappenings list:
I want to inform all decent partygoers in NYC that the [club name] in Brooklyn is full of racist bastards, I speak from personal experience. I am a white man who went to [club name] this Friday and I was turned away from the door because I was "wearing sneakers". Meanwhile 2 black guys wearing sneakers are ushered in without question. I went home to get changed and 3 of my white friends turned up and were charged $10 to get in while all black people were charged $5. They were then treated like outcasts for the entire night and were getting some seriously dirty looks.
Yeah, there's nothing more racist than black people being rude to you. Phrases like "all black people were charged $5" are particularly charming-slash-ironic. Don't let the terrorists win!
