It's historical fact that jazz originated in the black communities of New Orleans. That was generations before anybody even thought of "affirmative action". Try reading some history instead of making it up.
It's a metaphor for token black people in music, like Thomas Sowell is for economics.
I'm still waiting for you to make a factual statement.
You missed my first comment? There's a factual statement in there.
It was one of the first major cultural contributions African Americans made to American culture. It helped white gain respect for the black culture back when explicit and REAL racism existed. If it was never invent I would wager that the civil rights revelation of the 60s and 70s might of been delayed for a few decades.
The race of the person playing jazz doesn't change anything, ALTHOUGH USUALLY BLACKS ARE BETTER AT JAZZ?
because they usually are the ones who are playing jazz, lol, I am saying race doesn't change whether it's good or not, it just happens to correspond that black practice more and are better.
Stop contradicting yourself and stfu
yeah i dunno if he worded the question that way on purpose or if he really didn't know. Anyone worth their salt knows where jazz and blues came from. I had to facepalm when i read it lol.
@worldscolide lmao just someone making it about race as usual lol. Its not like we say do you know “black pop”, “white pop” and “asian pop”. Lol so silly
well they do say it about kpop lol but i get what you mean.
@worldscolide yea but they also have jpop. I dont listen to either honestly
my sister in law is obsessed with it
@worldscolide if the guys looked more masculine i would give it a chance. But until then, nope
Yeah its good stuff
and yes i like jazz
But to answer what I think was meant to be your question I don't listen to much jazz but it's nice enough when I hear some.
Why because I like African American singers? Al Jolson will always be the king.
What an asinine racist thing to say. With all the woke shaming I see you post elsewhere on GAG this is just the icing on the cake about your extreme ignorance. I can tell you at least half the music listen today wouldn’t of existed if it wasn’t for the early jazz artists who INVENTED jazz. If you don’t appreciate than your might as well burn your BLM tshirt. Jazz was one of their earliest African American cultural developments that won of over respect/appreciation from white people. It was an early bridge that helped start narrowing the gap between the REAL racism that existed back then. It paved the road to musical developments of R&B, Motown and early hip hop.
