Some are, some can be, some are not, some never can be.


Folk are folk.

Is it the times or is it the people or is it the condition that generates music?
Today, there seems to be no music , only noise.

:lol:

Seriously, would of never known that minstrel was a race thing.
I made the question slightly uncomfortable for a reason. You were not the intended audience, but you did reveal something in your comment that brought out my intended theme. You assumed I was not racist and was attempting to be funny (and I was). However, I was making a greater point to the mongrel thread.

The person making the comment and their reputation is often an important piece of how it is interpreted and in some cases how it should be interpreted.

Slightly. :shock:

I didn't think you knew that minstrel was such a race motivated thing.
I guess because the first thought that came to mind for me was, street musicians in 15th-18th century Europe.

Sorry about the way I went about it. I wanted to make a point though. I know it was a bit of a trap thread.

It isn't, necessarily.

Just that specific incarnation of it, which was near the top of a google search for "African-American minstrel(s)", or something along those lines.
