White Myth Afro Americans in Country Music

„When record executives separated hillbilly records from race records in the 1920s, they weren't trying to describe the music they were curating. Rather, they were trying to solidify an audience, a community, and an identity for which their product could become a necessary element. The identity they did create was based in part on class and in part on region, but it was also based importantly on race. And—if Brad Paisley warbling "I'm just a whiiittttee man" on the song "Accidental Racist" is any indication—it still is.“


Country für Fortgeschrittene, interessant auch für Southern Soul Fans.
