P4k has gone full on white guilt
Yeah I tend to not get too heated on shit like this but like... what the fuck. This actually made me angry. Does she expect white people to do nothing but beg for forgiveness for the actions of certain white people 200 years ago? Cause that's sure as fuck what it seems like. Seriously, fuck this shit.
>"White art is deemed more worthy of respect, and so white audiences respond to it positively—it is set up for success. It’s evidenced the last week of news: be it the insidious petition urging Glastonbury to drop Kanye West in favor of a "rock band"
Jesus christ these people are idiots
>friendly reminder this is the writer of the article in question
>these are the people who dictate your taste
the writers argument is that because kanye is black his "art" is not respect as much as a rock band
Which is totally ludicrous, the man is given nothing but high scores from every music critic.
wow, it's like i stepped into a time machine and i'm a decade back. "indie" has been full of crusty ironic white dudes for decades. what's more surprising is that they're acting as if this is a revelation. it's not.

Tired of damned browns trying to one-up blacks. Yeah, yeah, you had English oppression and shit. They weren't in bondage and only came to freedom land in the past century. Go eat drown in a vat of non-beef curry, damned twats.
>beg for forgiveness
what does that have to do with anything
the article just said that indie is white dominated and non-white musicians don't get taken as seriously as white ones in it, if the author "wants" you to do anything it would be to think critically about why that is and how race affects your evaluation of music. nothing "radical" by any means.
"race-baiting" is an incoherent term operating off intellectually indefensible assumptions, and unless you want people to think you have the same backwards ideology as bill o reilly i'd think for a sec about using it in public
>What substantiates this are the microaggressions, as well as overt and covert expressions of racism, that happen as a result of those systemically held ideals. Some may take the success of artists of color as threat to their space or scene. White art is deemed more worthy of respect, and so white audiences respond to it positively—it is set up for success.
this is insane
Nobody fucking cares.
You fags give Iggy Azalea shit for "appropriating black culture" and then you give white people shit for not "having a culture inclusive enough"
Make up your fucking mind.
People of other races are largely irrelevant in the indie scene. Thats the fault of people of colour, not white people.
Show some interest and make some indie music and they might be included.
tv on the radio has one of the best indeh albums of the past decade and most of them are black with black culture elements in their music. also indie stems from genres with roots in post-proletariat rebellion (with clear european origins), obviously it will appeal to cultural inheritors of that culture. hip-hop is completely dominated by blacks and it would be career-suicide to go on about the "unbearable blackness of hip-hop".
I didn't mean for it to be a rebuttal, I have no intention of debating you, because I dont actually give a shit about any of this. Most people here don't, which is why it's being shitposted and memed to death. It's just fun to see you keyboard warriors get all riled up.
can you please explain why rap music and basketball are dominated by black people? why is this allowed when white people are not allowed to dominate indie music (according to black people/liberals)?
p4k is stuck between having to choose either blacks that shit all over females or empowered females that happen to be 99% white. FKA twigs was a rare exception and that's why it was so hyped. pitchfork has been a heavily politicized publication for years now.
