Sorry for the multiple posts; I'm working with the best technology I have. Let me support that last argument. Take Jazz, for example. Where do you think that Duke Ellington, John Coltrane and Miles Davis got many of their harmonic ideas? European classical musicians. Funny thing though, when blacks borrow from "whitebread" culture nobody complains, but let others borrow from blacks, and the libs whine like schoolkids. The popularity of modern Black culture masks its utter irrelevance to anything important. It produces very little of value in art, literature, architecture, science, law, philosophy, or religion. It doesn't produce a stable, well-ordered, mannerly society. ####, it doesn't even consistently produce world-class athleticism anymore; Eastern Europeans are beginning to take over boxing, the Olympics, and MMA. Our trash-talking Olympic basketball team couldn't even medal, casting doubt on the quality of our big three sports, and the success of "whitebread" athletes in the 400 and high jump (and the women's 100, not to mention China's victory in the hurdles) is shattering stereotypes at a (heh) world-record pace.
If blacks and whites want to recapture their old glory, a liberal dose of Dr. Coz is very much in order.

Yep, they're awesome, and did their best work before the multicultural revolution, just as I wrote.
|Oh lord, a troll hath invaded my lovely thread. Be happy Wes doesn't provide thread authors here the ability to do maintenance, Paley, because I'd delete every worthless thing you wrote. Go away.|
I have no doubt of that, and given the rate at which our liberties are withering, you just might get that chance one day. I wasn't trying to crash your party; I just thought you wanted a <cough> diverse range of opinions. But I'll withdraw from this thread. I do value your contributions, however, as well as Ved and Mr. Mahandi's. I'm looking forward to their responses, which promise to be very....exacting.
Dey can't 'andle my riddim.
