Viva once again you start a thread that really is nothing more than a forum for you to vent about your idea that EPE is EVIL incarnate....has never done anything which you approve of and is always open to criticism by you for their every breath!
You, I, or they...... can not control the press, and no matter how you might like to "exclude certain fans" from loving and appreciating Elvis....it can not be done. You seem to always want to somehow magically get rid of the older fans and the die hard fans who love Elvis as much as anyone. If they like to collect everything Elvis-(including potato heads0 that is their right in America-and that does not make them "crazy or freaks" my goodness what names to use concerning other fans.
Extremes on any subject (not just Elvis) are what draws attention-politics, religion, philosophy, scientific theory, ENTERTAINMENT, etc.....
You never hear about the center of a political party-you hear of the extreme right or the radical left.....its the nature of mankind that things which are most. That extreme fringe is what is covered by the press-always has been always will be
You market any product based on demographics that are known as the base buyer for that product. Marketing by Sony, by Turner, and EPE is done based on those demographic facts-facts do not lie.
So naturally since you admit-their is a small black fan base the bulk of the marketing is not for them-I will emphasis SMALL as the operative word in your statement.
You can not dictate who is a fan, who is going to be covered by the press, and what angle their stories will take.
Sure I do not like how the press covers many subjects-but that is the nature of the press.
