a big part of american history includes white people ripping off black people. two examples are profits from cotton farming in the south, along with rock and roll.
i feel about half guilty about it. my ancestors didn't own a plantation, so they never exploited any slaves or indentured servants, more or less.
but i do like rock and roll.
so i listen more often to classical music, and i'm beginning to like it more and more. whatever you might say against it -- oldgeezer music, irrelevant, boring, etc. -- no one can say it rips off blacks in any way.
