Look what happens when white people take over rock and roll...you eventually get Nickelback. We take rap, you get eminem. So what do we do? We try and invade jazz next and we give the world Kenny G! I propose we enslave ourselves or at least don't let us near anymore genres.

Race has nothing to do with how good you are in a genre, except commercially. And that first analogy made me laugh, since when was rock and roll NOT dominated by white people?

Learn rock history then get back to me before you say something stupid again.

Ok, there was plenty of black people involved in the development of rock and roll, and they were good. But what you're getting at is that only white people make bad music. There's plenty of bad music by black, Hispanic, and Asian people, just as there's plenty of examples of good rock bands that *GASP* have all white members! If you're not implying that, then please, clarify for me.

I understand that this was meant to be tongue-in-cheek, but it's certainly a dominant mentality.

And you're just straight up wrong. To even suggest that invalidates everything that those musicians stood for, black and white. Some of the greatest jazz musicians have been white, among them:

Bill Evans
Django Reinhardt
Chet Baker
Dave Brubeck
Gil Evans
Stan Getz

I don't want to even get started on hip-hop and rock, because it's obvious you're not going to respond. But a message to everyone else: the color of your skin is NOT an index of your musical abilities (good or bad).

Bearing that in mind, Kenny G still sucks. Just not because he's white.

Kenny G is a sad excuse for a Jazz musician.

He's the worst thing that ever happened to the Jazz genre.
