    A portmanteau of the words "Black" and "Hipster" used to describe a black person that so happens to be a hipster. Blipsters may be considered uncle toms or sellouts because of their fascination with predominantly white music and clothing, usually indie, punk, and electronic.

    Blipsters usually are the token, if you see a black guy with a group of hipsters, he's more likely a blipster.

    A lot blipsters have a song sense of self, with hip-hop(usually underground or old) and other black music, and intellectual black sensibilities that they usually feel are absent from todays black mainstream.
    Steve is black,rides a fixie, vegan, like Animal Collective, Radiohead, and TV On The Radio, he's probably a Blipster.

    I don't see anything wrong with the label. We all like to put things in sub groups as much as we don't like to admit it.

    Honestly I find white hipsters disgusting enough...black ones jus mek my stomach turn.


    I don't get how they think they "original" when THEY ACT/DRESS/TALK like EVERYONE else in the hipster subculture. Ayuh ain fxckin unique, yuh jus a mass ah metrosexuals in fag and drag.

    most of them ain tryna say that "we're unique" or anything like that, they just do they own thing. Hipster subculture is based on the idea of TRYING to be cool. They don't think things are cool because they like them, they like things because people will think they're cool for it lol
