[Christian Smith, a University of North Carolina sociologist,] compared the romance of rebellion to the middle-class fascination with hip-hop culture. “Spoiled suburban white kids act like rappers, and there is a real connection to something, but really it’s not what their lives are fundamentally about,” he said. “Their lives are about wanting to go to Duke University.”
