A former gang member from Long Beach, California, teaches break dancing to at-risk youth in Cambodia.
This video is a great example of cross-cultural interactions in the era of globalization. Urban youth culture of the United States is spread to Cambodia through a former refugee (with a personally complex political geography). What geographic themes are evident in this video? How is geography being reshaped and by what forces?
A very positive video but I would like to know how KK was able to come clean of drugs (I assume he did them in California). I would also like to know what made him decided to change for the better.
The geographic themes evident in this video are location for example; because we know that that the video was film in Cambodia. Another theme that I see is the human environmental interaction, because we see how the former gang member adapt to his new life and shape his life for good, we also see how he interact with the kids and is becoming a good example for the kids, and a good example for the Cambodian society. A society that he didn’t even know before.
This gives hope to youth that get into trouble. Both those kids and this former gang member are helping to decrease all the violence in the world. Also it helps the former gang member avoid going to jail. Know there are all these new dances that the Cambodian culture are exposed to which can show them new moves that they can use. The kids that get into trouble can also avoid going to jail or even be killed by an enemy or someone that does not want anything to deal with him.
