    I saw a Facebook post (not a friend) showing that if you play his music at 10, you will make black people cry. Ha ha!!

    Over at Saving Country Music, most of the reaction is “what about rap music, why can they use it and we can’t??”

    There are a lot of white Americans who openly express frustration at the n-word being off limits to them.

    You mean in the comments section, right? I can't see the folks who run that site being like that.

    It’s a one man show and you might be surprised. He’s had some strange criticisms of Isbell and Sturgill, and he lets some highly offensive stuff slide in the comments.

    Women writers have gone public with harassing emails. Margo Price called him trash and Isbell said he comes off as an incel.

    My “I’m not racist” friend during the National anthem last night: “at least they have one white singer”

    A comment like that and he or she would be my former friend.

    There aren’t any decent Americans expressing that frustration. There are decent people who believe no one should be using that word.

    Did you think I was implying that they were decent? I thought it was pretty self-evident that they were trash.

    I know you were implying they are trash. I just took Exception to your compliment. Trash implies they were once useful.

    I said a country artist called one specific person trash.

    I complimented nobody.

    Please don’t respond.
