    Default White Males and Musical Fame

    the evidence

    Beiber aside (and I hope you'll grant me that)

    there is a huge lack of white males in the music spotlight.

    Skim through the most watched and you'll see that it's all black men while the women fall on either side of the anglophone american racial dichotomy (:P)


    I have my theories about this but I'd like to know what you guys think.

    I was for sure this one would take off.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    White guys prefer the safety of packs -- I mean, bands.

    the evidence? That's what I'd refer to as being "cherry-picking."

    Popular culture music for the stupid masses has always sucked. I can't listen to that crap but a lot of people like it.

    Take a look at the Modern Rock top 100, do you see any other ethnic groups well-represented on those charts? Which category sells the most concert tickets? hmm...

    Different genre's are always going to appeal to different people. My personal preferences are Modern/Alt Rock. Indie. Jazz. Traditional R&B, Reggae.

    Pop culture sucks shitzor and it always has.

    Huh?

    And that link isn't evidence.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    It's because the white males are running the show behind the curtains.

    Its all a tool of production, these guys arent out there getting famous on their own, they get picked up by big record labels and pushed onto the rest of us, apparently a singing/dancing black dude which was a staple of racist white enjoyment in the old days is still a nice staple of racist white money making.

    I assume the white guys either dont fit a specific mold, or are not interested.
