And I love how I can't have a different opinion or I'm not black. GTOHWTBS. People have been stealing songs and taking credit since people started writing them. That isn't exclusive to race.
I don't understand the need to claim something. It sounds so stupid. Unless you wrote it then nobody owes you credit just because you're black. The only people that are owed credit are the black musicians that created the songs. Adele doesn't have to pay any special respect or give credit to anyone because of the way she sings. Country music and pop was developed by black people? Yea right. I want to see the receipts.
You should do a history lesson on music, you would be surprised at how much of an influence blacks have had on music. Society in general. The credit is very much deserving. Blacks had a huge influence on the creation of country, rock and roll, jazz and blues.
