Rock in the black consciousness: Chris Brown's "Grafitti"

Chris-brown-graffiti-album-cover-700x699

No, I’m not going to make this post about Chris Brown.  Except to say that it’s interesting to note when R&B singers start clutching guitars on album covers, it’s a sign that rock–that bad four-letter word to black folks–is seeping into our consciousness.

Nah, Chris Brown is just actin’ white, right?

    Well I think it’s funny that I don’t believe he even plays an instrument, right?. Just following a trend like 99.9 % of black rockers these days are unfortunately. I think for a long time some blacks in pop culture did like rock but they didn’t go there because they knew the money wasn’t there so stuck to hip hop to express them selfs in a acceptable way by society which is a big oxymoron anyway.
