Thread: Here we go aagain. Womack accuses Elvis of stealing

    Re: Here we go aagain. Womack accuses Elvis of stealing

    Here's a very insightful write up from 1950's dis jockey Red Robinson on his take on Elvis being considered a racist. One part in particular points right to the point and the fact. How could he be when he did this at that time?

    “"Take a look at the things that are only publicized now, of how he’d be driving down the street and see a destitute black woman with a little child. He went and bought her a Cadillac. Now if this guy hated blacks, he wouldn’t even have gone near them."

    It also talks about Jimmy Hendrix seeing Elvis live in 1957 in Seattle and how it influenced him.

    The problem is, is that this completely unjustifiable rumour will always be held as gospel by some. However, the truth is out there for everyone to see. It should matter that everyone knows the truth, but even when it's staring someone straight in the eye, they will still believe what they want. When people really open their eyes, they really do see.

    I have spoke and debated many young African Americans people on this issue-and 95% of those I have spoke of or debated just will not see the truth.
    Every quote by people like Jackie Wilson, James Brown, Eddie Murphy, Little Richard, BB King etc....are called made up or lies.
    Post a link to a clip of these great people actually saying them and the reply is-
    "SO what do they know!" or
    " they were probably paid to say this s***" (that is an actual quote from a kid at Topix)
    They just can not fathom that they might be wrong no matter the evidence to show they are.

    Wouldn't it be great if we could someday, somehow get beyond all discrimination and reverse discrimination that keeps prejuduces living and breathing in the world?

    Therein lies the problem, deep rooted beliefs are the hardest to shake off. You can only try and open peoples minds, the rest is up to them. We cannot force an opinion, so if people wish to remain ignorant to facts, so be it. Some people are just so stupid.........

    You're doing good work, but instead of posting clips about what other people have said about Elvis, just post a clip which shows Elvis on stage with the Sweets. Any clip will do, and it will be the simplest but strongest counter to their erroneous beliefs!

    Anecdotes from third parties or tributes from other stars are fine, but people who choose to believe Elvis was in some way rascist will always find ways to discount them.

    How will they react when they see with their own eyes a "rascist" who has hand-picked a black backing group to share the stage with him!

    I actually did do that-and it was no different response...some people just will not believe that Elvis was not racist.
    I have been cussed on line for telling the truth about this topic.

    Re: Here we go aagain. Womack accuses Elvis of stealing

    Racism works both ways, just because you are black doesn't mean you have the right to call someone a racist based on hearsay and half truths perpetuated from a lie. You either like Elvis or you don't! Colour shouldn't even come into the equation. If you like Elvis you will investigate the truth to clear his name. If you DON'T like Elvis you will NOT look to clear his name and you will perpetuate the myth.

    There are so many instances to show Elvis was colour neutral that it just doesn't have any credence in calling him racist.
