Beige people still causing havoc in 2010

I was in San Francisco a couple weeks ago and I met this guy, (we’ll call him Luke), who was from Philadelphia. In the midst of our conversation I made a joke about somebody once telling me I resembled Prince. Luke then claimed that he had never heard of Prince prior to watching select episodes of the Dave Chappelle Show.

He also didn’t get my joke :(

I was stunned and refused to believe this nonsense. Who are you and what planet do you live on where short mystical beige people with musical talent elude your existence? How shameful.

However, not too soon after my shock wore off, he rebutted me with, “We’ll have you ever heard of Jim Morrison?” The name sounded familiar, but I’m not going to lie, I had to Google before I was like, “Oh yeah, THAT white guy.”

And of course, this launched a debate.

For a brief moment it was very important for the both of us to justify why the other person’s idol was so elusive. Yes, Luke is white and I’m half black. And although it shouldn’t matter it still remains relevant.

I wondered could the only common ground among the races as far as entertainment be Michael Jackson and the rap genre. Are Idols among races only relevant when they are doing something ignorant? Or is race not important and I’m making a similar Kanye West-like bold statement, about how black people don’t know white music and white people just don’t care?

[Insert Kanye shrug here]

Anyway, the state of music over the last decade, as in it suffers to deliver quality and inspire, is one thing people of all races could potentially agree on. Therefore, I think that it is important everyone knows who the artists were before all this musical coonery. In honor of Black History Month I am going to dedicate the rest of this post to a short tutorial of who Prince is...

I don't believe this was a race issue, it was more of a pop culture ignorance issue.

I'm Hispanic and wasn't born or raised in the States. And even I know who Prince is.

I'm gonna cosign with whomever said its an ignorance Issue. Prince was huge in the 80's. Even if you could care less about the purple one it would be hard to ignore him during the time period. I mean he did play the superbowl after the nipplegate thing so that should have been a clue that it was white folk friendly.

Is he under 50? If not, it's like not knowing how many states there are. Jim morrison is no comparison, he's been dead for like 40 years! Most white people would not know his name if he were alive.

Funny as hell. You have to live in a cave to not know who Prince is. I made blog entries for his birthday , on 6/7/58 ( http://daij62.blogspot.com/2010/06/happy-birthday-prince-roger-nelson.html ) Personally, I don't know anyone that has never heard of him.
