News Flash: Rock Still Considered A White Thing

So rock is still considered a white thing, huh? What a surprise! British tabloid The Daily Mail asks "Does listening to rock make you racist?", referring to a study that states that "just a few minutes of listening to mainstream rock music such as Bruce Springsteen and the White Stripes is enough to make white students focus on the interests of other whites at the expense of back people and latinos." (...) "The researchers, who tested 138 students with different genres, say the finding shows that because rock is associated with white people, people unconsciously favour their own race after listening."
But wait for the best part: "White students who listened to Top 40 pop – made by artists such as Gwen Stefani and Akon – were fairer towards other ethnic groups." Ok now, should we be surprised, should we pay attention to this study at all?
Help us understand what the world is coming to please. :-P

im about to give ya'll a sneek peek of some AWK black rock that crushes. then i gotta take it off again cuz apparently we are waiting for some kind of press run-off from D's involvement with the Mars Volta camp and Omar's new band before we get any kind of attention. We've had this album done, some of the songs are from damn 2006! But we have to hold back. You think if we looked like Sleigh Bells we might get some industry love? Leave comment on my Vimeo if you support. 

Here's a vid i just made for AWK...
