not to stir the pot but what does the efficiency with which one's skin produces melanin have anything to do with their musical tastes or abilities?
Actually, you're partially correct. Yet, considering I changed the title to my thread after close consideration for my love of music and on top of
that, considering I am a fan of all music, hopefully, I redeemed myself by correcting the title of my thread. If that's not good enough for you...Oh
I apologize if I have offended anyone including you as that was not my intention.
However, I would like to add that considering the Beastie Boys/Rick Rubin were the first to do what they did at that time in music history (being non
ethnic/black)...the Beastie Boys successfully entered the realm of Hip Hop (good for them...I love them), which was not, nor had it ever been noticed
as anything other than black/hip hop/rap music at that time which was doomed to fail. Uhh-hummm let me clear my throat (Funk Master Flex) in case
you're wondering where that cool quip came from. Not to mention the grandfather of Rap was actually, James Brown with the "Shindig/Papa's Got a Brand
New Bag" followed by "The Big Payback".
In the "Big Payback", James Brown, if you listen carefully, said "Gotta' deal with you, gotta deal witch ya'". It should be President Obama's theme
song for Congress. If you're offended, that's unfortunate, but I think you know what that means. Nobody likes "chicken change and squealing"...do
