Black creative geniuses like Sister Rosetta Tharpe is why it hurts me that BLACK PEOPLE think Rock & Roll is “white people music.” We invented all of it. Rock & Roll is so Black that white people drained every drop of Blackness out of it and called what remained Metal. That’s how much Rock & Roll is Black music.
Don’t let white people and their “Elvis created Rock & Roll” nonsense fool you. Rock & Roll IS Black music. Even if it’s not your cup of tea, don’t deny or forget that it’s OURS.
