What if I began playing the musical superficialities of If I appropriated and claimed it as my own (as an African American), bastardised it, misrepresented it, maybe jam it on the one and give it flat out funk grooves, do it with my Roland TR-606 and JUNO-6? Then subsequently gained popularity through it, popularising my wack version of it? And moreover, claimed it not as something else merely and partially influenced by this music, but that it actually was this traditional music, every bit as genuine? Wouldn't that be absurd, maybe even offensive to the people who created and owned that music?


well of course that would be quite goofy.

now i'll pose a question.

what if an african american( or an iranian, or a someone in tibet, etc) was moved by early traditional English or Celtic or Arabic or Native American or Peruvian folk music WITH an understanding and great regard and respect towards its substantive cultural meaning and history?

now, who but someone that subscribes to reverse racism would actually suggest they are to be scorned for their love and appreciation of a music that lies outside of the "boundaries" of their culture, geography, and skin color????
