Who said that a white girl can't play a Saxophone?
I was playing that song to death when I got a hold of it. Other blacks were puzzled as to what I was listening to, and their comments to me was that I was listening to "white people music". Of course I just looked at them as if they were a three eyed cyclops. Now because of their ignorance, they didn't know that Derrick May was actually black, I've said that nothing can expose the stupidity of people faster then the issue of race. It's like a dumbing down agent. Speaking of Detroit, I remember reading and hearing about the rapper Eminem. Many black hip hop artists and fans didn't take him seriously, because he was white. Their claim was that whites didn't know anything about rap music. He had to go through a lot of crap early on in his career, because blacks dismissed him due to his race rather then give his music a chance. Well, he made fools out of those people and proved them and the music industry wrong. The reason I am bringing this all up is because of very senseless incident which happened recently. What would you think if you knew of a young white girl who played the Saxophone? You all would say it's no big deal right? I feel the same way. Apparently that wasn't case for some young black females who took exception that a white girl would play the saxophone. Back on June 26th in Milwaukee Wisconsin, 26 year old Cassandra Struves who is white was playing her Saxophone outside the Summerfest grounds as a street performer. Three black females approached her and attacked her with one saying according to Ms Struves " a white girl shouldn't play that sort of music."
So I suppose these three black females ignorantly assumed that blues music is strictly the domain of blacks and can not be played by another other person of a different race which isn't black. This is an example of how racism can bring out the pure concentrated stupidity in people. Music belongs to everybody. People have the right regardless of race to listen to and play the type of music that they like. Now of course these three black females would be the first to shout up and down that they aren't racist. I've heard that scratched record too many times.
