Fair use rationale for Image:Mars Blackmon.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Mars Blackmon.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Revert article to previous version[edit]

Clearly user Dmdixon put a lot of effort into expanding this article here, unfortunately it's made up of a lot of original research and the tone is completely wrong for Wikipedia. Most of the references used don't seem particularly helpful as they refer sometimes to tangential issues (defining "Bike messengers") or directly to various films. I don't have access to any of the other references used so I can't check them for usefulness but given that the article as it now stands does not belong in Wikipedia, I recommend reverting to an earlier version and maybe try to incorporate whatever's useful in this version into that one.

Since there were no objections and it's been over two weeks I boldly reverted to an earlier version. SQGibbon (talk) 22:02, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

B-Boy is not generic[edit]

it's used in the article as a generic term for a hip hop fan, when in fact it has a very specific meaning in hip hop culture which i'm sure the writer is aware of, so i don't understand the reason or motive for watering-down the word

is mars a breaker? yes? ok he's a b-boy. no? then you need to call him something else or risk diluting the word b-boy til it means just about anything or worse yet, nothing —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.250.176.112 (talk) 07:51, 22 March 2011 (UTC)
