What the hell is that supposed to mean? I thought music transcended race,religion,gender etc.
I was asked to list some of my favorite musicians/bands to an associate. (Mind you I listen to all genres)n. I get the oh "I figured ...you liked white music..." What is that supposed to mean? Has anyone experienced this?
Good answer. It embarasses me how some people limit themselves to only one or two genre because they feel like they have to listen to those genres .smh!
yes i have i was really between genres of music really i was called the hiphop hippie lol cause i would listen to rap then turn around listen to phish, fishbone, sublime etc like if i were to go to a rap show i would were a punk or metal shirt and i was at a rock show i would were a rappers logo t shirt. i think it means A BUNCH OF DUMB IGNORANT OR AS IN THERE LANGUAGE IGNANT ASS NIGGAS DONT KNOW THERE FUCKING HISTORY (and that goes for white people to)!!!!!!!! *clears throat* sorry bout that but seriously i dont give a fuck if a white person listens to rap music but if he thinks its cool to call me the N word oh im getting in that ass but at the same time im not gonna say it infront of white people cause 1. that really give them courage to say it 2. i dont trust white people like that. reason why is becuase i got more down talk by whitey than black people like i can count on five fingers of how many times i was talked about by black people so i say no there as white music and black music if it makes you move than its just good ole lovely music.
Well it's just fact that every form of recent popular music has been influenced by black musicians somewhere along the line historically. Black people brought syncopation to the world in the form of the Harlem Hellfighters' Band during WWI. Essentially syncopation is the "back beat" found in every pop/rock/rap song of the last hundred years almost. Nothing is darker than jazz!! And the influence of jazz can even be heard in metal music. The history of metal more or less begins with the band Black Sabbath- a band heavily influenced by black blues musicians.
Black musicians brought the effing noise, it's extremely short sighted in 2012 to simply say hey those white guys are playing this music- it must be a white invention for white people. Not even true.
“Did you hear what Pussy Riot said in the courtroom? ‘Even though we’re behind bars, we’re more free than anyone.’ That’s like Benazir Bhutto before she went back to Pakistan to be killed. That’s like Oscar Wilde facing the courtroom before he was jailed. To see that courage among women in a white youth movement? That is incredibly powerful. It sets a new bar: How are we going to participate now? Should we all be going to jail? Should Animal Collective go to jail? Should Grizzly Bear go to jail? Should Bon Iver go to jail? Is it time?”
WOW... so music with guitars and energy is a "white" youth movement
When all that blew up I got swept along with it to a degree for a short time
then I caught myself and thought fuck that.... I ain't signing any Facebook petition
or going on a protest/march to Free Pussy Riot!
I uploaded a pick and made one or two well thought out statements.
I wonder how much of a worldwide campaign would've been started
and supported had this been a group of black girls.... maybe lots.
But it's assumed to be a WHITE Youth Movement.... not a youth movement
DIRECTLY FROM BLUES; The first Rock 'n Rollers were blacks creating "Race Music"
it gets appropriated or hijacked... we get pushed out of this world changing, multi billion
money making scene and everyone just takes it as a given that it's white music for white people.
Let's see what 2013 brings in terms of voices!
