Confederate Music (NSFW)

Country music can be easy to pick on, and I don’t want to take an easy shot at a beloved art form. But while musically taste is purely a personal issue and who are we to deny anyone their art form. One thing that often concerns us is the use of country music to wave the flag for war like no other art form. A point made clear with comedy by Bill Maher…

The use of the confederate flag by many of countries biggest stars also seems to show a serious blind spot to racism. A flag of course flown by those who wished to continue the ownership of their slaves and their support for the slave trade.

It might not be such a black and white issue, but country music seems to be very…er.. white!
