Re: 70ís Genre Music Can Heal a Nation
I agree. The music is soulful and can heal. I thought whites and blacks were coming together in the 70s and 80s. I think back on that scene in Rocky 3 when Apollo Creed is wearing the American flag shorts and James Brown ďLivin In AmericaĒ is playing as his theme song. All was going way better until gangster rap came along. It started a hatred towards people for no reason.

My kid loves music from the 70s and 80s. He loves Hendrix, Prince, Def Leppard, Van Halen. Heís color blind to race. He appreciates the art and the talent. We are brothers and sisters.

We canít forget that the civil war was fought to free slaves. Hundreds of thousands of white people died fighting for that purpose. We arenít all descended from white devil slave master crackers. Itís sad whites are being shamed for somehow being associated with that.

Great thread. The 70s music can heal us.

The 70s was a different era. US prosperity was #1. There was no such thing as a major Japanese car market then. Computers were something that IBM- an American company, did. We just achieved the goal of going to the moon. There was some goods manufactured in China and cameras in Japan... but neither was any kind of a threat of US jobs. Illegal Immigration happened, but it wasn't a world-sucking problem like it is now. Civil rights bill was signed into law, but was not enforcing any major changes. Equal Opportunity was not an idea then. The law: Fair Housing Act - which is ONLY used when non-whites want to move into white neighborhoods (this is 'fair'?) was possibly there, but no-one cared because it was rarely invoked.

The music of the era reflected all of the above.

Unfortunately, we cannot go back to the 70s... More complex solutions need to be created now.

This is one of the best threads I have seen on Gulp since 2009.

We discuss this in our family - our oldies station plays 80s crap; the rest play "the list" and a lot of downer drug and suicide crap. So many beautiful works are ignored, a lot of them are still alive in your memory and mine.
Thank you. clv

Re: 70ís Genre Music Can Heal a Nation
Wonderful thoughts, OP. When I listen to 70s pop music (my era)it takes me back to much happier carefree times when races all got along much better and seemed to be moving forward together. Too bad much of the pop music of this decade reflects the ugliness and divisiveness within our nation.

Men and women, able and less able, straights and pot smokers, people of all colors were getting along for a time then. I know - I was there.
