Thread Name: Us and Them: folk music and political persuasion
Subject: RE: Us and Them: folk music and political persuasi
Spleen Cringe got what I meant, Maryrrf--but I'll say it again in another way--different genres of music are often strongly associated with certain minority ethnic/religious/social communities, and, while it is now "politically incorrect" to express contempt for the minority group directly, people can do the same thing in a veiled way, by expressing contempt for their music.
