It's only the hip-hop generation males from the late 80's-90s, that's it.

Older cats, this generation, most females don't give a damn about Scarface.

Your question should be: why is Scarface such a overhyped and overrated film, and why does anyone get obsessed by it?

It is an enjoyable film with an entertaining performance by Pacino, but it really doesn't deserve the severe bumming it receives. People's ridiculous obsessions with certain films just make me dislike them more than i otherwise would, so **** off and stop ruining films for me!!!!

While we're on the topic, why do black guys seem to love average to ugly looking white girls with super bleached blonde hair, orange tans and fake tits?

I see this all the time.

Never heard this stereotype before.

I'm familiar with the stereotype that black men go for fat white women who never wear make-up, and that's something seen a lot of time.

To answer OP's question, a lot of inner city blacks feel they don't belong in mainstream society and its workforce, so they look to economic sustenance of an illegal nature and have disdain for authority and the officers who enforce it. Blacks, in general, always have their "ear to the streets" so to speak and keep it real by acknowledging the hood as a second homeland to Africa.

Tony Montana in 'Scarface' is one of the quintessential embodiments of the outlaw who bucks the trend, goes against the system and its laws in order to build an empire through illegal commerce. He's an icon of someone who reached a high level of success in the way a lot of blacks are striving to right now. It's the same reason why rappers always boast about how much weight they're dealing and reference hallowed figures such as Pablo Escobar, Frank Lucas, Manuel Noriega, Rick Ross, etc.

It's the whole Get Rich or Die Tryin' mentality. Not that hard to understand.

Black people think its cool to sell drugs, kill people, kill their best friend, do lots of coke, and participate in all types of f*ckry.

lol @ people claiming a place they've never even been to as their homeland - really, that is incredibly stupid.

Montana was a self-destructive and egomaniacal maniac. Anyone that looks to him as some kind of role model is a ****ing idiot or a homicidal maniac. He got rich and then died being a coked up bellend, what you are saying makes no sense.
