No, I'm not. Quit assuming. I'm acting like MUSIC is more relatable to MUSIC, and not to TV series with a sprinkle of MUSIC.

The only other thing I could add is How much is CMT becoming like MTV? Still mostly music? Last I looked at it for any period of time was about 2
years ago? I'm aware that I could be wrong just because things change.
But otherwise, I'd prefer music to music comparisons, and acting to acting.

More expedient: How slavery happened in the first place, in the US. White were grabbed off the streets in England, and shunted onto boats and
sold into indentured servitude. Blacks were stolen from their homes, and sold to the slavers, who originally sold them into indentured servitude.
Everyone was eventually to be free men in America. England had years of YEARS of trying the fix the problems on their own doorsteps--severe upheaval
and reform, where they were trying not to create another Napoleon (and his ilk). It is natural for a country, during times of reform, to address the
problems at home. By the time they were finally addressing outside slavery, they lost the colonies. At this point, America had other problems on
it's plate that scared them far more than if someone was free or a slave.
Seriolsy: most pressing need, enjoy some peace, until there's another pressing need that's forced down your throat. We had 2 wars with England before
we even addressed slavery. There was no way in the world that slavery in this country was going to be addressed when it was likely to mean a civil
war (which it ended up being), while England was still breathing down our necks.

Definitely not white.
Look up Proselytes. You can be of non-Jewish blood to become a Jew. If you do this process, even Jews who want to only marry Jews are going to
intermarry with them. Hence there are White Jews, Black Jews, Arabic Jews, and some Asian Jews. You do this for nearly 2000 years (this is about
how long Jerusalem has been destroyed ~ 70 B.C.), and disperse these people to the ends of the earth, and they have possibility for roughly 100
generations of Proselytes? Orly. They're white, you say?
