Prediction: This thread will be long with heated arguments that will spin out of control.

Watch.

Could this be a translation thing? It wouldn't be nearly as offensive and have the same connotation if it were phrased as street ball instead of ghetto ball.

Then again I have a German friend who said all the rap music in German CD stores when those actually existed was in the section labelled 'black music' (or whatever the german word for that, maybe schwarz?).

They should also include in the 'black music' section jazz, blues, soul, r&b, reggae, ska and all of their derivatives, including the entire genre of rock music...basically everything but classical and marching band music.

Like I said before.... - 06-24-2011, 02:06 PM

Is there anything worse than a team from TexAss, owned by the biggest arse in sports and led by a German to be cheered? I am happy for Jason, but those three together make for some smelly odors heading West.

+1 Scott Joplin and his "Maple Leaf Rag" changed American popular music forever.

Spirituals led to Rag Time
Rag Time to Blues
Blues to Jazz and Rock
