I thought black dudes liked fat white chicks?

The answer is no.

My daddy loves his tractor,
My sister loves her boss,
My husband loves to wear a sheet
And burn a flaming cross,
My son loves Barbra Streisand,
I pray he isn't gay,
But me, I only love one thing,
And that's the NRA!

Richardson has said on more than one occasion that the standard over the years is for the event's planners to attract entertainment "of the black persuasion" to headline followed up with acts "of the white persuasion" as the headliner in the following year.

A GIS for "black persuasion" turns up a lot of lingerie and shotguns.

Of course, you could just hire a talented booker who knows how to create a lineup that transcends "persuasion". Seriously, Gretchen Wilson? I don't even know any white people who like that formulated country pop garbage, besides Clear Channel management from the year 2007.

/nevermind...blacks don't like him either.

...in my perception, on the "formulated country pop" list, Gretchen Wilson isn't even in the top 10.

I was around 17 I think when that godawful Redneck Woman song came out. I promise you, there are plenty of white girls in the 18-40 set who ate that shiat up.

Gretchen Wilson? She's booked for this? Well, it was nice of Winghouse to give her the night off.

She's the sexy one. She always gets comments from thousands of people. She woulda made 'em bukus of money.
 
2013-12-04 02:23:43 AM
The real gold in any al.com article (particularly about race) is typically in the comments.

For example:

Infowars - "Richardson is a typical inbreed member of the racist democrat party, the party of the klan. Once Richardson can speak with complete sentences and bath frequently, then I will respect his opinion."


Yeah! It's those smelly illiterate coloreds who are the REAL racists!
 
2013-12-04 02:23:49 AM
You know, Gretchen Wilson is pretty ok in my book, and she's a big upgrade from a some kind of reconstituted Commodores. (I mean, really? Zombie Temptations weren't available?)

So I'm thinking a problem is being created by certain elements when there really shouldn't be one.

He's actually kind of god-like in Columbia SC, for all the peoples.  There is an actual Hootie statue in town.

Freaky... I know.

I love Gretchen Wilson.  You people are so knee jerk "lets make fun of hicks" that you cannot see talent.

I sound fat: I love Gretchen Wilson.  You people are so knee jerk "lets make fun of hicks" that you cannot see talent.


I'm not a big country fan, but I found her on the radio one day and I could really hear the appeal.

F*ck hicks.  F*ck all the hicks.

//and the medium of country music.  Just god damn f*cking listening to it makes my skin crawl.  It has that "look, we're proud of our ignorance, inbreeding, slower pace of life that eschews Science and education, and raging hard-ons for our cousins!" feel to it that doesn't sit well.

I'm white & she used to play in our town when she first started. And I don't like her either.

Blame Roger's dad.

Also, FTA- "For instance, when we had Three Dog Night, we had Lakeside (a popular R&B group) open for them."

How did they decide which has been opens for which, coin toss?

I don't like Gretchen Wilson, but that said, does the KOOL jazz festival attract white people?

So what's the differnce?  It all comes out in the wash.  Somebody always has to farking whine about something, even if it doesn't even concern them.

As long as they screen their audience, it should be okay.

FTFA: "Gretchen, I don't think she'll appeal to everybody," Richardson said. "I would not have selected her. But I'm not on the Events Mobile board."

You know, if you feel like who they pick is so important, maybe you should step up next year and join the committee that hires the acts.

It's much easier to let others do the heavy lifting and then biatch about their decisions after the fact.

I know black people can't be racist, but if they could this is what it would sound like.

My son is  a sophomore at U of A right now, and he absolutely loves it down there. We can't get him to come home. The student body is diverse and he's having the time of his life. The problem is that it's so easy for people to judge states/cities/regions by anecdotal evidence and their worst examples. A couple weeks ago The Daily Show did this piece.
