Why do people like Jazz music?

"However, now that Jazz has been around for 80+ years, I want to know where the artists are."

New York City.

If you can't make it out here to this coast, then the next best thing is its ONLY real jazz station, WKCR.

WKCR plays all jazz, and I mean jazz styles you never knew existed.

The DJs are volunteers from the jazz department of Columbia University. Most often, the nontraditional stuff is played on two programs, the Out to Lunch show (noon-3pm), and Jazz alternatives 6-9pm).

Believe me, there is no other station is like WKCR.

All the DJs play very different stuff so make sure you hear a full weeks programming. I'm sure you will hear what you've been missing.

Do you think having "Black History Month" helps or hinders race relations in America?

There are MANY commemorative months celebrated by this nation and/or used to raise awareness. I wonder why republicans take issue with ONLY this particular celebration.

Why is that people complain about Black History Month but dont complain about the other months?

I think it is retarded to have a black history month. Most of those other things you listed are to raise awareness for things like disorders and illnesses.

The jews were treated worse then the blacks more recently and they don't have a holocaust month. Atheists and every religion other than catholics were tortured in the Spanish Inquisition. Do they have a month? White people get the most disadvantages nowadays and we don't have a month.

If you don't believe me go look at the requirements for standardized testing, if you are white you have to score higher on your exam in order to pass. High schools are allowed to have a Minority Student Union, Ebony Club, Black Honor Society. White clubs are not allowed due to racism. White people have a harder time getting on government assistance. I have tourettes and Autism and I am unable to get on government assistance. My disability lawyer even said (in joking) "too bad you are not black, then it would be easier to get you ssi". There is a channel called BET and a magizine called Ebony. Do you see a white magazine or a white only tv channel? They even have their own award shows that only give awards to black actors, singers, etc. They are allowed to call themselves the "N" word without getting in trouble.

Now I expect to get thumbs down. But just ponder this. If my yahoo avater was black would you have thumbed me down for saying these things? probably not.
