It’s in all the streaming services, Itunes, music streaming, bookstores, etc. “Celebrate black” this and celebrate “black” that. Get rid of the word “black” and lets come together as one. If you feel the need to use the word “black’ and use a color to describe someone then you’re the real racist. Think about it right??? No reason to celebrate “black” everything.
Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy entertainment by the african/american community. I love a lot of blues music which mostly consists of dark-skinned musicians like BB King, T Bone Walker, Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy, Robert Johnson, etc. I love all that shit. When it comes to african/american rock n’ roll, I love Hendrix and Chuck Berry. I love singers like Janet Jackson and Mariah Carey.
When it comes to the movie industry I like and admire a lot of dark-skinned talent too like Denzel Washington is one of my favorite actors and Sam L. Jackson is cool.
Why do we need to describe “black” everything when it comes to the entertainment world? Well, I think this is all part of the divide and conquer, really. Nothing to see here.
Why can’t we treat them like real “people” and real “humans” like us and not “black this” and “black that” on everything? I think you get my drift, by now and where I’m trying to get at.
I love all entertainers regardless of skin color, why do we need all this? Celebrate black music, celebrate black stories, celebrate black movies, etc. It’s everywhere…. uggghhhhh…. stop all that already. So tired of it all.
Oh and I did happen to pick up the Prince “Purple Rain” album from Itunes since it was $4.99 celebrating “black music” is why so I went ahead and bought that album and loved it. Now I see why Prince matters and that’s my very first Prince album believe it or not. I might just get into his music more.
