Shit... I will admit that I have listened to some house music and it made me want to just get up, dance, and get rowdy like a muthaphucka. LmBao.

here in Chicago it's mixed with hip hop or called ghetto house music. Kids around here like to "footwork" to it. So it's not conventional house music.

House music is common here in the Chicago area. Chicago hip hop radio stations play house music in the mix.

Black people created this music in Chicago which was a child of Disco. It's very underground at this point. Still very popular. I remember this White girl came up to me and said" i've never seen a Black guy dancing to house before". I bet in 50 years some white person will say the same thing to some Black kid dancing to Hip Hop.
Black people let go of things that belong to us to easily. Jitterbug, Blues, House music. We let people have it. Since we don't own the music and produce it, we let others come in and relabel it.
White people are just stupid and ignorant, they think they invented everything and they think they own everything.
Black people created house music,
but since we have these peckerwoods walking around with their god-complexes, they tell everyone that THEY created this music because it became so popular in europe. Very stupid.

Pretty soon you'll be hearing the white people say that THEY created lil Wayne's song "Lollipop"
just because it is so big in europe.

They just steal from and copy other people because they are plain and nothing themselves.

I never heard white people claim house music as their invention. And I live in the birthplace state where house music originated from.
