Race and Music

Just found this on the Moodmat blog:

Moodmat One Question Interview: Theo Parrish

Amazing and on point about Detroit, the US, and music. The comments at the end of the interview by other readers are disappointing. You know, it is possible to be white and not get offended when a person of color points out that racism is alive and well throughout the United States in all its guises.

white people really tend to have a problem when people talk about where this music came from. the perception of dance music has been viewed by white people through the "rave" perspective of "music has no color" for so long that it is the default viewpoint. the problem is that that was never, ever true!
