    I went to do a little digging for Goldmoney. Thank you for the kind words.

    I'm returning from Louisville, KY, where I spent a week on a work trip and I am honestly shocked at how there is such a huge segregation of race by class. Black folk run the city (airport, hotels, restaurants, transportation etc) yet they are nowhere to be seen at the high levels of society. I really start understanding the anti-white sentiments some people here express. It feels like in America they put a tag on you and you need to sit on your lane. It's maximum capitalism which serves very few very rich very white men at the top, at the expense of the lower levels of society. I also find it surprising that whites and blacks were essentially always segregated in the city, very few mixing.

    America increasingly loses its appeal to me. And I do feel bad for all the people struggling and working multiple jobs to get a good life. So many poor, so many homeless, right next to luxurious hotels and super rich people. Yikes.
    I did meet many amazing people and tried to get to know every one that crossed my way. I heard many stories and gained respect for everyone making the most of what they have. Huge respect for the people, but total despise for the system.
    ​​​​​​​Merry Christmas friends

    You’re not as far as you think.

    I think this is in part how I always felt so close to black culture. In my teens pretty much most of my friends were black, and I always found their culture so carefree and liberating. African culture is a bit different than Black American culture but in essence I do think there is a lot of common ground, but plenty of music that is popular among them would be judged outside of it. I never once felt judged even if I was always the shy white boy.

    Last year I had to travel to Louisville, Kentucky, and I went out for walks. I had so many conversations, namely with black people, and even came across a block party which I just found awesome and honestly would have loved to jump on... But I just watched for a bit and moved on minding my own business.

    I just think it's beautiful when humans share culture. A massive chunk of humanity is lost on the internet, but true human connections are priceless.

    Unfortunately as I moved up in life, through university and now in my PhD in Norway, the fewer blacks I started seeing and I really miss multiculturalism in my life. Every culture has its ups and downs, but it's only through sharing that you're able to value what's good and improve on what's behind.
    One of my favorite posts ever on this forum is the epiphany you had on black oppression and a clearer understanding on the shaky race relations between blacks and yts. I think you came to that realization after that trip! I wish I can find that post.

    Yea it's ridiculous, and it's mostly cultural whether it's accepted to listen to something or not.
    Among my guy friends I don't really share much of what I listen to, and typically guys will only admit listening to more alt-leaning females. But when you're out partying and "Baby One More Time" starts playing, there isn't one person of our generation who doesn't know the lyrics. And there is even this rule among some of my friends which is when you're drunk, only trashy music is allowed (and trashy means Pop pretty much). So...

    Where was that video of those football fans singing Dua Lipa?

    "Drunk In Love", "Apesh*t" are "straight" music. Also Lemonade was huge with alt-music critics.

    I'm not sure why I'm entertaining you but I enjoy it somehow

    As long as you have/had hit singles plus being remembered you will always appeal to a big demographic.

    Kylie has some bops. "Can't Get You Out of My Head" and "In Your Eyes" are 00s classics. Not very familiar with her work after that but I think I generally prefer her music over most other female popstars.
