    This is a follow on from the other music thread on this forum which I found quite interesting.

    Back in the 90s a British girl group called Eternal toured the US promoting their new album.

    The album had done really well in the UK and they had a load of hit singles out of it. But they coud not get anywhere in the US. One of the reasons they believed was the nature of the US music scene. When they went to "black" stations their host would not talk to the white girl and vice versa when they went to "white" stations. They felt that their management in the States did not know how to market them or to whom .

    They felt that music in the US was segregated. Probably because society was segregated.

    And I do struggle to name bands that are racially integated even today.

    Is this the case or am I missing out some great music ?

    The UK has a great history of integrated bands, probably because we are better integrated than the US.

    The Beat were the greatest band ever. They never recorded a song you couldnt dance to.

    Rap is for retards. Not the white man's fault he doesn't like. It's garbage.

    American radio including SiriusXM, which I just canceled is corporate radio.
    You will hear nothing but the same 40 songs ad nausum, from groups considered appropriate to gain ratings. Nothing more. Plenty of bland artists black or white get airtime. No corporate conspiracy to keep the black man down.

    Radio is dead.

    Black American music artist are some of the most successful in the world.
    They are very popular.
    Tommy just can't make it through the day without accusing Americans of being racist

    That's no novelty. And you are not different than many. Some of the most racist white people that I've ever encountered loved so called black music. In fact, there was a racist old white guy that lived our neighborhood that gave my parents some Motown records that I still have to this day.

    Back in the era of Basie and Ellington, they would perform at white clubs where only white people were allowed, but had to enter and leave the club through the backdoor.

    Just curious though, since you allegedly grew up around black people, how did you arrive at hating them so much now?

    I havent actually accused anybody of racism. It just looks very segregated from this side. Even our manufactured groups like the Spice Girls or All Saints are integrated.
