how about living in the now. as the population shifts from primarily white to primarily minority, in black and hispanic culture, the people who spend the most money on music entertainment,(the pre teen to the young twent somethings) are going to buy what’s considered cool to the majority. incindently i love heavy metal and hard rock, but i dont think chuck berry or elvis have much to do with it.as a white person, i cant stand rap or hip hop. so we dont all glorify and reward whites who do things blacks started. believe it or not, i dont like emminem either. some of the richest entertainers on the planet are black rappers, now i feel so sorry for them. they glorify the ghetto, they glorify gangs and drugs and violence, but they dont live in the ghetto.
