  • When did the bluetooth headset become a black fashion accessory?

    I have been noticing this more and more lately, black culture seems to have embraced the bluetooth headset as some sort of fashion piece. I saw some wedding pictures a couple of weeks ago and one dude, while in his tux and posing for pictures, had his bluetooth in at all times. At a formal dinner thing with work one guy had his in the whole time while sitting at the table, he never talked to anyone on it but it remained in his ear for the whole event. On the news yesterday they were interviewing black folks and they had their headsets in while they were dressed up in some sort of going out clothes. It seems that keeping your headset in at all times no matter the occasion is now considered cool. There are more examples but these are the most recent.

    When did this happen and why?

    I think that the wireless headset is nice for drivers but I'm so goddamn sick of thinking someone is talking to me in line at the market or wherever. Why do you roll your eyes at me when I ask if you are talking to me? Why do I have to feel embarassed when you are talking about your menstrauls in public?

                Its because african americans have had a long history of contact with the borg, and the bluetooth head set is just step one in the assimilation process.

                  Makes sense since all the Borg look alike anyway.

                    Wow, he's right, I ONLY see non-white people wearing and using Bluetooths at seemingly all times of the day and in almost any situation. WHITE PEOPLE NEVER DO THIS. Dear God, he's a genius,

                        Mikey added something to the tool bar? A momentous day, I'm gonna go bake a cake.


                        I got one of the early bluetooth headsets like 3-4 years ago because I was buying a new phone that had bluetooth and thought it would be more convenient than the wired headset that The Man forced me to use by law. It is way more convenient and very cool to use when I drive or I'm on a work call and need to type and talk, but it's just a pain to see everyone everywhere just wearing these. Most people obviously aren't using them, so why not turn it off and leave it off your ear until you actually make/receive a call?

                            The worst part about this shit, when I worked at a deli a few years ago, people would talk while looking directly at you, and you would repsond, and then they would look at you like you were an idiot because you didn't realize they were on a bluetooth/handsfree. I would spit on thier lunchmeat.

                              I hate how it makes it seem like there are more crazy people wandering the streets. I get nervous whenever I see some spaz having an animated conversation seemingly involving nothing and nobody and then they finally turn and there's that stupid Bluetooth.
