It is historically proven how white people have profited off the backs of black service and black art. Black art has been mocked ridiculed by larger white culture, then copied and reproduced for their own consumption. Blues is another genre in which white people have usurped and used as a stepping stone for white music’s biggest accomplishment, rock music. Blues was sprouted from the concept of black pain, and the reality of life in the south. Blues was one of the largest appropriated musical genres by whites from the black americans that created the genre. Although white suffering doesn’t really have the same ring to it, does it?
