In a virtually all-white Iowa town, Flip daydreams of being a hip-hop star, hanging with Snoop Doggy Dogg and Dr. Dre. He practices in front of a mirror and with his two pals, James and Trevor. He talks Black slang, he dresses Black. He's also a wannabe pusher, selling flour as cocaine. And while he talks about "keeping it real," he hardly notices real life around him: his father's been laid off, his mother uses Food Stamps, his girlfriend is pregnant, James may be psychotic, one of his friends (one of the town's few Black kids) is preparing for college, and, on a trip to Chicago to try to buy drugs, the cops shoot real bullets. What will it take for Flip to get real? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

White or Black
21 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Danny Hoch is Flip, a kid living in Iowa who believes that he is a white man trapped in a black man's body. He raps with constant yo yo yo motherf****** and the other common words used in the genre. Along with two other aspiring wiggers, the trio travel to the infamous Cabrini Green housing projects in Chicago with the intent of becoming big time drug dealers. The delusional Flip becomes entangled with some real life gangsters with interesting results. The fantasy sequences are an unnecessary distraction which interrupts the flow of the story. The acting is superb; most especially by the lead, Danny Hoch. He is Eminem with a better sense of humor. Eight Mile is a better movie, as is Gridlock'd with Tupac Shakur. Even so, White Boyz is worth the ride.
