What is it about this picture?

Everyday I get more and more hits on this picture. From all over the fucking world. The title of the photo is hippie dash street dash fight. Is it because google image search is so big now or maybe its name triggers the hits?

The photo is from Joe Samberg, Berkeley, California. I remember Joe's photos from the 70's that he took around Telegraph Avenue. The black guy was a nice local guy and actually kicks the redneck's butt. On the extreme right there is one person trying to stop the fight. Pictured over the swinging punch of the white combatant is a young kid named Vanessa. She is almost looking away because of the commonplace nature of the event.
