Guitar Slim "The Things That I Used to Do"

There's a magic in the music of black Americans, there's a truth in it all. Our black brothers and sisters have never had the luxury of living in a dream world that white Americans take for granted.

No, black Americans must deal with the world on a reality basis, with few resources and often with no help outside of themselves. In this, they may have only the strength of their own bodies and the strategies of acceptance and directness.

Me, I'm just thankful to live in y'all's neighborhood, maybe catch a little shine on the rebound. America without our diversity, well that would be a day without sunshine right there. There are too many people who need to hurry up and knew that.
