Racialism in Music.
« on: March 12, 2008, 03:20:45 PM »

Good evening all!
I am a Doctor and campaigner against racialim.  Now I am not a racialist, I dont mind what colour people are, black, white or green with purple spots, but in recent years I have increased my campaign against black racialists.  Wheras, previously I have concentrated on the white variety of racialist for my campaigns, I have shifted focus to my brothers and sisters in the belif that we must clean up our own acts first. 
        Typically black racialism manifests itself most profoundly in our music choice.  For example look hw much scorn blacks pour on poor michael jackson (whose skin condition I personally diagnosed in my clinic on san monique), the brother gets sick and we persecute him.  Look how white people accept him.  Turn the situation around and consider Al Jolson, the king of Jazz, black impersonator and champion of black culture famous for hits such as "mamme, I'd walk a million miles for one of your smiles".  White people dont diss him.  Why do so many blacks hate him.
        Consider Peter Andre, Culture Club and Jimmy Sommerville.  They have produced some of the catchiest reggae tunes of the past 2 decades but do you find them in our collections? Do the get invited to reggae sunsplash? No.  Why? Because we afre racialist!! Band together brothers! Fight the evil within! Start to give some of these great artist the credit they deserve!!

Hey man, I hate to be the one to point this out, but just look at what he was accused of.   There's gotta be plenty of people that think he really did do it and hate on him for that very reason.   That's where all the hate is comin from. 

As for music being a stronghold for "racialism", I'm not so sure about that.   I mean, like what black artists in particular are spreading blatantly racist ideas and who aren't affiliated with an afro-centric groups such as the Nation of Islam, the Nation of Gods and Earths, the New Nation of Islam, Rastafari, or what have you?   I would agree that racist music would have a negative impact on a select few of its listeners, but I just don't see music as a major cause of the problem. 

The problem is that people in general, whether they be black, white, brown, or fuschia get angry, they retaliate.   And their target of criticism or rebellion is going to be whoever they think is the cause of the problem.
