I like his "Night in the Tropics" which has a Wagnerian sound.

I consider Gottschalk to be a forerunner of ragtime music.

Florence Price was heavy classical but she was black, kind of. She was from Little Rock but Jim Crow drove her to Chicago where she composed symphonies and concertos.

Much of work was never performed when she was alive but was discovered fifty years after she died.

Hate is often contagious. It is often stirred up during times of declining economic conditions to deprive some groups of wealth so other groups can prosper. It was the case in Germany during the Great Depression. In the US, Asians are starting to be targeted just like Jews were targeted in Germany.

Norwegians love everybody because they are the richest people on the planet.

The biggest problem with privately owned prisons is their is no motivation for rehab of the incarcerated. Rehab is bad for future business.

Jim Crow has a road and a creek named for him in California.

Singling out a group for benefits not available to all groups is discrimination.

I know.

That's why black Farmers are getting compensated for all the decades they missed out.

Why did black farmers miss out? Do they have grounds for a legal claim.

Getting preferential treatment now will just cause many whites to resent them which increases the racism. It is the problem with liberals and the reason they keep losing elections. Generally, the American people want fairness and equal rights for all. They do not like handouts.

One of the most delicious onions that I ever tasted was purchased from a black farmer in the US state of Oregon. I don't think he needs any special government help to grow great onions just because he is black.
