"I feel like modern country is deliberately dumbing down the human race," James declares. "They're deliberately making people take glory in being uneducated and racist, and it's just sad. I think it's absolute mind control."

While I hate new country music, I'd hardly call it racist. Some groups collaborate with rappers these days.

What an idiot. There is NOTHING racist about modern Country Music.

Now, I think the quality has fallen off a cliff in the past 15-20 years. Kind of like NASCAR.  It got popular and promoters jacked it into overdrive to cash in so now, they just spit out crap songs and the (maybe non-core) country fans lap it up.

All IMO, of course.

ETA: Someone needs to ask if he thinks Rap/hip hop is racist and aimed at dumbing down America?  I know what MY answer is...

I agree with him, except about the racist part.

I love MMJ

I believe that the President of the Unites States of America, Barack Hussein Obama, is deliberately dumbing down the human race.  President Obama is deliberately making people take glory in being uneducated and racist, and it's just sad.

Funny, I agree with him except about the "country" part.

You can only dumb down yourself.  But, if I had to wager as to what contributes, I'd definitely put the press at number one- that includes the racial divide too.

I guess because you don't like them, they're not "relevant," then.

This. And I'd be very surprised if anyone is saying that rap, hip-hop, and other sub-genres of that type of noise is elevating the intellectual capacity of anybody. Unless you think that forced rhymes are the be-all and end-all in music.


And if you do, I have no words.......

Wifey and I go C&W dancing every weekend.  The music is not racist.

But it does glorify promiscuity, drunkenness, infidelity, bad grammar, creepy obsessions with people who don't want you anymore, and funny accents.

Country, like POP music, is 98% full-blown stupid.   Rap is 100% stupid.

I'd have to agree with the sentiment about modern country.  It's almost as bad as modern hip hop.  The term Hick Hop sticks.
