The current Wikipedia entry on Dap is completely lacking. All they have is this:
Dap is a form of handshake that originated in the 1960s among African Americans. The term dap may have originated as an acronym for Dignity and Pride, and was first used by African American soldiers during the Vietnam War. Though it can refer to many kinds of greeting involving hand contact, dap is best known as a complicated routine of shakes, slaps, snaps, and other contact that must be known completely by both parties involved. Some forms or other names for these greetings include "slapping five," "Black Power Handshake," "high five," "Five on the Black Hand Side," and "the pound."
This needs some serious detail and upgrade. Surely there must be one of you out there who is associated with a black studies program that can have a grad student handle this business. This is pathetically weak.
First of all., and you can use my text, this definition completely ignores the Grip, the class of greetings given by black frats. Secondly it ignores the current hug, which basically originated after the LA Riot. At the very least, you can video that and YouTube it then reference the video.
Now when you get into the Grip, there's a tangent that needs to be covered which is all about Stepping. Speaking of which Stomp The Yard looks interesting in the vein of School Daze, Love & Basketball and Drumline (if not Higher Learning). C'mon HBCUs. Man up and do some Wiki.
