Time for another album cover color themed playlist, but today featuring only black artists making music in genres created by black musicians, to prove a point to those who was quick to comment "NO!" on a story I shared which said "all your favorite music exists because of black people", & proceeded to stating genres you like that you claimed had no traces of black origin in them... • First of all, feeling a need to claim that your prefered genres are "all white"? That is. Wow. But second of all, you're wrong. Whatever genre you prefer there will be at least part of genres, but often the WHOLE genre itself, created by black musicians. If you love music, love to learn about music too. It's extremely important to educate yourself on the origins of the music you enjoy, especially if that genre is dominated by a white majority, but created by a minority that does not benefit from it. • And another thing, just because you only listen to white musicians in your prefered genre, does not mean there's not black musicians in said genre. There's not a lack of black creators out there in ANY genre, the lacking is (among many things) doors opening to white dominated spaces. Media coverage, distributors & labels pushing for black creators & doing so without pressuring them to succeed & make them money (being white gives you a privilege to fail), venues/festival bookings, access to funds, rehearsal spaces & scholarships, equal & fair pay & contracts, etc etc ETC. • And I'll say it again: I have failed at this too. I have not shared all the black art I consume on a daily basis here, what I post has not nearly reflected that. So I'm not sitting here on a high horse, claiming that I have not contributed to this. But please let us all do & be better. 🧡 • Black lives still & forever matter. I will continue to post more black music, art, creativity, in all genres that I love & I hope you will too. And remember to get your knowledge from black creators, I'm just here to remind you. • Weird to end on a question here but I still want to discuss the music in this picture sooo, do you have a favorite out of these? Mine is Dead Prez. 📝
