Waits for Tip’s response….
>Doesn’t like Iggy because she is white and sings hip hop shit
>”I ain’t racist”
Back the fuck up. Charley Pride was a black man who sang country and he was the shit. If someone told him to stop “appropriating” white people music, that certain someone would be outed as a racist because they are being fucking racist. Hip hop and other racket that I am not fond of is a part of American culture now and if a foreigner wants to come to my fucking country to take part in the culture and not dismantle the shit out of it, they are welcome to come here and be whatever they want to be. So fuck you.
And it is not appropriation of black music. Appropriation of something implies that its elements, once removed from their original contexts, can take on meanings that are significantly divergent from, or less nuanced than, those they originally held. It’s fucking music! It’s meant to be shared and enjoyed by all and if someone takes inspiration from a culture different than their own, then fuck you to tell them that what they are doing is wrong!
Um you do know that country music was started by black Slave folk and appropriated by white southerners right? Like the banjo, washboard etc were instruments used by slaves folk that they brought from their respective cultures or were household ornsments they used as instruments. There’s so many other things wrong with everything you said that I’m not sure if I should address. Like damn it’s too early for this fuckshit.
Actually, dumbass, country music is based upon traditional Irish folk music. Do your homework and fuck off.
