Re: “Redbirds Rebrand

BTW sport teams rebrands are in trends now. First were LA Chargers, then Juventus and now Redbirds.

Brand is what the customer experiences, not the colors they see

@FUNKbrs - I trust David Evans about the origins thing. His scholarship on the ethnomusicology of the blues is pretty awe inspiring. Here's a link if you are into the academic side of it:

Re: “Cohen Won't Attend Trump Inauguration

@Dayn - Yes you can. The 'ad hominem' argument simply attacks the bearer of the argument, rather than the argument itself. The person making the argument could be a stuffed marmot or circus clown, it doesn't matter. The reason it is a fallacy, is that the 'ad hominem' never addresses the argument's validity itself.

Re: “Council Members Say Racism Motivated Beale Street Vote

Timeout4,
Hy po the tically, if Funkbrs were happily transformed into a 19 year old black man and he was locked in a windowless soundproof room with a ku kluxer, could there be racism and or bigotry without corroborating witnesses? If a investigative panel of Funk's posse or the kluxers, insisted yay or nay, should we accept it?

Re: “Cafe Brooks Debuts, etc.

What does this mean " Caf Brooks by Paradox offers a family-friendly experience." ?
All of Brooks feels like a ladies who lunch experience. The only upcoming exhibit listed is the 2017 Mid-South Scholastic Art Awards. And yes I know inflated bunnies (right after giant red balls) its all rather banal. Where is the art that challenges us. Or art that is not only self referential. Something that does not feel so gawd awful small townish. Including boasting of some family-friendly experience. Of course Dixon is coming off "Hunting and Fishing in American Art" and if that is not self referential enough local artists are next exhibit. Have we no interest in the outside world? Must every museum only cater to little old ladies?

Re: “Council Members Say Racism Motivated Beale Street Vote

CL, making an accusation does not make it a fact. I respect someone's opinion but it is what it is..., an opinion.

Timeout4,
"..unless the incidents were investigated and the officers found to have committed misconduct." The police at the Edmund Pettus Bridge might agree with you. And pretty much all police everywhere. Racism can exist without Official Verification.
BigTime21 is probably more on target. You'd have to prove a mega decibile polka band was permitted to continue across the street from the incident.

Re: “Council Members Say Racism Motivated Beale Street Vote

My facts are straight.

It's systemic racism that's crooked.

But hey, people who abuse their kids never admit to it either, so at least I know what class of person I'm dealing with.

Re: “Council Members Say Racism Motivated Beale Street Vote

"October 25th, when the organizers of a post-Trolley Tour "cypher" in front of KPreSha Boutique alleged that police officers responding to a noise complaint over-reacted and escalated the situation."

I'm not saying the officers didn't overreact but get your facts straight. Nowhere in the article did it say it was because of rap or hip hop music. It was a noise complaint because of loud music.

"People who were actually there who THOUGHT it was racist"

That's opinion, not a fact, unless the incidents were investigated and the officers found to have committed misconduct.

Re: “Council Members Say Racism Motivated Beale Street Vote

I post two articles by legitimate news sources quoting people who were actually there who thought it was racist

Get told it's "baseless."

So I guess WREG and The Flyer are fake news sites then?

Can you have ad hominem against a nom de plume?

"The cops busted it up because it wasn't white people music, pure and simple."

That's your opinion which is baseless.

Re: “Cohen Won't Attend Trump Inauguration

Oak said: "And you can lose the ad hominem, by the way. It just makes you look like the sore-loser petulant-foot-stomper type I was referring to in my initial comments."

Exactly right. Your "fuck off troll" comment proves, by your own standard, that you are the "sore-loser, petulant-foot-stomper type," just like your idol. But, just like him, you recognize it in others, but not in yourself. Sad.

Re: “Council Members Say Racism Motivated Beale Street Vote

http://wreg.com/2013/10/28/hip-hop-artists…

It's pretty straight forward.

Two people were arrested and one was maced for supporting Hip Hop on South Maine Trolley night, the same night many nostalgia and impersonation acts were also performing on the same street for the same event.

The cops busted it up because it wasn't white people music, pure and simple.

The performers were there by invitation from the owner of K'Presha, a local business.

But hey, there are none so blind as those who refuse to see.

Re: “Council Members Say Racism Motivated Beale Street Vote

@FUNKbrs So let me get this right. A man was maced because he wanted to listen to rap music downtown. Don't believe it. You've got to be leaving out something.

Also, it seems you don't understand the concert industry when it comes to booking an act to perform. That's the promoters/clubs decision on who they want to book to perform at their venue. If the act is good and people want to see them, most likely they are going to get booked. It's all about the bottom line at these venues. It's not about denying access so lose that excuse.
