    i mean there’s always that ONE boy that does double dutch. (not like his name is helping matters, btw). but good for him. ANYTHING to keep away the childhood obesity.
    were those white girls in the competition?
    white girls do double dutch in 2009?
    is this new?

  • you know what’s funny?
    everytime i hear about double dutch competitions
    i immediately remember the ep of sesame street i saw as a kid
    where they covered a double dutch comp
    and half the competitors were white kids…from canada.


    alls well that ends well
    this might get zeandre a college scholarship to some school in canada if he sticks with it.

  • I kinda love his mom. She’s like “I was all, nooo, that’s for girls…” but you can totally tell she came around and that she’s 100% behind her kid.

    I remember watching double dutch in elementary school and the black girls teasing me to get me to try it. I probably did. Once.

    Well even stepping is very “female” in high school… I remember the one boy on our high school step team had to quit because his dad wouldnt allow it he said that was “for fags” :-(.
