Black people and rock music

Note : not a racial question at all!! Is it weird for black people to like rock music? Im half black half white and I love rock if I went to a rock concert would people look at me differently?

Answer #1

Rock was inspired by jazz and the blues, so it wouldn’t be strange since african americans really made jazz and blues music popular. There’s musicians like Jimmi Hendrix who were great with the guitar. It’s not weird, and you shouldn’t allow your race to make you think you should only like certain types of music. Just listen to what you enjoy.

Answer #2

Phil Lynnot Jimmy Hendrix Lenny Kravitz Bo Diddley For crying out loud slash is half black so in answer to your question… NO
