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
