    I was told that hip hop and kung fu goes hand to hand, but I don’t any good serious Urban films with a Martial Art tone. Like Mixing Wong Fei Hong with a urban film. But i always see white people getting center stage when it comes Martial art films (Kill Bill, Airbender, and Etc).

    It was fun to read this and part of it does cause me to recall the series on cultural appropriation that was done on Racialicious a couple years ago. I was aware of the connection between Asian martial arts films and the dance element of hip-hop, but I didn’t know anything about how that connection arose so that was illuminating.
