Bareefer Obonghit: If any of those are your favorite songs you probably can't read this article in the first place.
dookdookdook: I need to know something: Does it still make me old if I whine about how today's music is horrible compared to the music of <time period> if <time period> was more than a decade before I was born?
sigdiamond2000: "Harlem Shake" is an entirely different matter; the white DJ Baauer's sampling of a 2001 rap song by Plastic Little and a 2006 reggaton song by Héctor Delgado has little to say about the contemporary scene. It hit No. 1 on the charts thanks to endless videos made by people enthusiastically dancing to music sampled from minority artists without their permission.This person cannot possibly be serious. Is this a joke?
Diogenes: Does that make black hip hop artists Uncle Toms?
zedster: What Racists may look like:[www.movieposter.com image 400x597]
One Bad Apple: I am surprised Weird Al escaped their notice about getting rich by mocking black musicians.

Tyrone Slothrop: One Bad Apple: I am surprised Weird Al escaped their notice about getting rich by mocking black musicians.They know better than to mess with someone who's white and nerdy.
The Goddamn Batman: Up next on Salon, "How Your Profession Makes You a Racist." And then, "How the Contents of Your Refrigerator Makes You a Racist."
BSABSVR: That was...odd. It read like just argument by assertion that Kanye West is way better than you think because duh.
INeedAName: BSABSVR: That was...odd. It read like just argument by assertion that Kanye West is way better than you think because duh.Honestly, using an artist who thinks so much of himself as to name his album Yeezus (which is apparently some self-styled nickname based on Jesus) to show that hip-hop isn't all about self-centered artists who crave material wealth and status... not the best example.Heck, one of the tracks is title 'I Am a God.' What a pompous douche.
BilltheThrill: we had the positive rhymes of MC Hammer replaced by the violent, man-on-the-streets ghetto story telling of Snoop, Dre, and the LA scene
HotWingConspiracy: I don't see much racism in mocking the gaudy.
