RACE is a factor in record sales.
RACE is also a factor in views & downloads.
people that are HALF AS GOOD get TWICE AS FAR –
LOCAL-wise…NATION-wise – WHATEVER…WHERE EVER
and you know what???
at the end of the day, the MUSIC suffers because of that.
RACE is just another GIMMICK that is KILLING music…killing BLACK music –
people that ARE NOT Black act like they don’t see it – (coincidentally some of them think racism is a thing of the past)
and the people that ARE Black that act like they don’t see it are IGNORANT (to say the least) of the FACTS.
OPINIONS without FACTS are OPINIONS of FOOLS
BUT OF COURSE i can’t act like Black people aren’t ALSO liable for the demise of Black music – SURE – hold accountable the Black artists that need to be held accountable –
but even AFTER those Black artists are held accountable for their part in killing their own music – RACE is STILL a factor in the SUCCESS (or failure) of their music – point blank, PERIOD.
