Can anyone here tell me why, at my prom yesterday when there was hip-hop r&b, rap, and other 'black music' on about 60% of the people dacing were white and the dance floor was beyond crowded, but when the rock music came on, there where less than 15 people up there? What is it with white people not danicing their own music but other people's instead?

Because hip hop and rap are mush easier to dance to and are the "new" music of our age group.
When in doubt...KILL IT!!

Untrue to ones self? Geeze man, do you know where rock and roll got it's roots? Elvis, Little Richard, Chuck berry were all heavily influenced by the R&B style of the bars that catered to blacks in the south! Rock and roll wasn't invented by white folks bro'. I don't give a rat's behind for rap either, if others like it ok with me. No matter what color the artist are, if I like the music, I'll buy it, if it sux I don't. What if oriental americans had to dance only to oriental music...you heard that crap?? LOL I couldn't dance to it...hurts myb ears just listening to it! :lol:
^ XD ,but it's been changed over the years actually the first rock song to be put on was 'tainted love' by marylin manson and the ones who daced showed little difference in movement and comfort than the rap songs.
and as a side note, i'm mainly hispanic, with some white and some black.

RnB and Hip Hop music generally makes you want to 'hook' up with members of the opposite sex. The music is all about grinding, shakin' it...etc etc
If you are at a Prom, you are probably with a date, or you are probably looking for a piece of action. In either case, you want to dance to music that allows you to get close and get your groove on. This is why you need the magic of RNb music.
I'd love to see you meet a girl and slow grind, whilst moshing to a damn rock band.

Rock doesn't seem to be that good for dancing/"grinding"/shaking it, rock is best for rocking oot.
