WATCHING KEN BURNS' "COUNTRY MUSIC"?
« on: September 18, 2019, 12:06:32 PM »
I AM NOT A FAN OF COUNTRY MUSIC, BUT I AM A FAN OF KEN BURNS' DOCUMENTARIES. I DECIDED TO WATCH THE SECOND EPISODE OF "COUNTRY MUSIC" AND I AM NOW MORE THAN EVER CONVINCED THAT MR. KEN BURNS IS A NATIONAL TREASURE.  I BELIEVE I ENJOYED IT BECAUSE I AM A LOVER OF AMERICAN HISTORY AND THIS WAS A NEW FOUND ASPECT OF WHICH I HAD LITTLE REAL KNOWLEDGE OF.  I FOUND MYSELF TOTALLY ENGROSSED IN THIS STORY, I LEARNED QUITE A LOT AND NOW HAVE A NEW FOUND RESPECT FOR COUNTRY MUSIC AND ITS INFLUENCE IN OUR SOCIETY AND CULTURE. I LEARNED QUITE A BIT ABOUT THE INFLUENCE OF AFRICAN-AMERICANS IN COUNTRY MUSIC TOO. KEN BURNS IS A MASTER STORYTELLER.

I HAVE ALWAYS HAD AN INTELLECTUAL CURIOUSITY ABOUT APPARENT HISTORICAL OXIMORONS; i.e. BLACK CONFEDERATE SOLDIERS, JEWISH GUARDS IN CONCENTRATION CAMPS AND REPUBLICAN CHICKEN HAWKS. LIKE MANY OF MY GENERATION, WHEN I HEAR COUNTRY MUSIC I ALMOST ALWAYS AUTOMATICALLY CHATERGORIZE THOSE MUSICIANS AND THEIR FOLLOWERS AS RACISTS. I AM ALSO SMART ENOUGH TO KNOW THAT NOTHING IS EVER AS IT APPEARS SOLELY ON THE SURFACE AND THAT A TRULY A WISE MAN WILL TAKE THE TIME TO UNCOVER THE SHELL, TO SEEK THE TRUTH. I AM RECORDING THE "COUNTRY MUSIC" DOCUMENTARY AND WILL HAVE MORE TO SAY ABOUT IT AFTER WATCHING THE ENTIRE SERIES.  :nod:

No you won't.  Stop lying.

Spoiler alert!  If not for Blacks there would be no country nor bluegrass music.   

Too bad you people are too Black to listen to it.

ANSWER TWO QUESTIONS BEFORE I EVEN RESPOND TO YOUR DUMB a** .  ARE YOU WATCHING THE DOCUMENTARY?  DO YOU LISTEN TO COUNTRY MUSIC?  ARE YOU BLACK ENOUGH TO LISTEN TO IT?  :lmao:

c-f has nothing to add.  He's resorted to name calling.  He also can't count.  That's why he couldn't get into the Air Force.

IF MAYBE YOU BOTHERED TO WATCH WE COULD THEN HAVE A REASONABLE CONVERSATION.  WHY DOES YOUR "NAME CALLING, NOTHING TO ADD" RESPONSE NOT SURPRISE ME?  BECAUSE IT IS YOUR STANDARD RESPONSE WHEN YOU HAVE NOTHING SUBSTANTITIVE TO ADD.  ...AND YES, I DID WATCH LAST EVENING'S EPISODE.

CIAA Fan- Had the same experience in Korea- one night at 2nd division we had a party in our officer's barracks, They had a country and western band. About one hour into the music they started playing R&B and soul like they grew up with it.

FOR THE MOST PART THE MILITARY TRIES TO ACCOMODATE EACH AND EVERY ONE. I REMEMBER WHILE STATIONED IN GERMANY IN THE EARLY 80s, THE SOLE AFN (ARMED FORWARD NETWORK) RADIO STATION HAD C&W MUSIC ON ONE DAY, R&B ON ANOTHER, EASY LISTENING, CLASSICAL... AND SO ON AND SO ON. IF YOU WANTED TO LISTEN TO AMERICAN RADIO THER, AFN WAS YOUR ONLY CHOICE.  WHILE I AM STILL NOT A COUNTRY MUSIC FAN, BACK THEN I LISTENED TO EVERYTHING ON AFN, AS IT WAS MY ONLY TOUCH WITH ANY AMERICAN MUSIC. I DIDN'T LIKE GERMAN COMMERICAL RADIO AT ALL.  I WAS BACK IN GERMANY A FEW YEARS AGO AND NOW YOU CAN FIND JUST ABOUT ANYTHING YOU WANT TO LISTEN TO ON GERMAN COMMERCIAL RADIO -AND- THERE ARE THREE (3) AFN STATIONS!

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
