    I first heard of Joss Stone about 5 years ago. At the time I had no clue she was white. I was stunned to find out she was white. To date she is the only white singer to fool me into thinking she was Black.

    Why does her color matter?

    Amy Winehouse was another exceptionally talented white singer.

    Teena Marie was another one. The only white singer I knew about as a youth.

    Lisa Stansfield had much respect from the Black community.

    Yet another subtle form of white racism.

    Some might think white musicians try to emulate black musicians out of respect. I having been a musician for 30 years, know otherwise:

    They only do that to one-up those black musicians, thereby proving themselves to be better at it.

    It's called "cultural appropriation."

    Consider yourself schooled.

    Of course. What black person wouldn't get a kick out of seeing some white artist dancing around like an organ grinders monkey on a leash?
