I've heard men, and even some women, say far worse about both gays and blacks than Robertson said to Mabry__I was not shocked at all but more in wonderment about who Robertson thought he'd be reaching and then accomplishing by granting an interview to a gossip guy to be published in GQ.So Phil Robertson said all blacks were happy before Civil Rights Legislation.
No singing the blues, he said.
A complete fallacy based on the fact that 'The Blues' is a distinctly American form of music created by blacks brought to America as slaves;
""No specific year can be cited as the origin of the blues, largely because the style evolved over a long period and existed in approaching its modern form before the term blues was introduced, before the style was thoroughly documented. Ethnomusicologist Gerhard Kubik traces the roots of many of the elements that were to develop into the blues back to the African continent, the "cradle of the blues". One important early mention of something closely resembling the blues comes from 1901, when an archaeologist in Mississippi described the songs of black workers which had lyrical themes and technical elements in common with the blues.""
Blacks started singing the blues as soon as they were taken off the slave ships in Charleston Harbor.
Proves that Phil and you idiots who defend him know nothing about the suffering of blacks during and after slavery. Right to this day.
Some may recall that poster Carol, not long ago, wondered about the whole anus vs vagina thing right here on this thread__for a day or two. Like Phil Robertson, Carol has reduced gay relationships to people shoving stuff up each others azzes.
I was more displeased with Robertson's remarks about his childhood experiences with blacks__which were total bullshit for he didn't go to school with blacks or associate with them beyond perhaps some isolated small time farming experiences. He's said he hoed cotton with happy blacks__it would be interesting if it was in his fathers, or uncles cotton patch eh?
Realtime was in Louisiana twice during the sixties__at Tigerland.
