Letter from Long Island.
Message about “so-called” black culture appropriation. I’m Irish-Italian. Half Mick half guinea from Long Island.
The Irish have been rhyming for over 500 years. It’s called a limerick. Check the Irish Rap Band “House of Pain”. Eric Schrody and Danny Boy O’Connor.
Will Smith is getting “jiggy” with it. It’s called an Irish Jig.
If you read Luc Sante’s Book “Low Life”. Without sounding didactic. Book is history of New York (five corners) from 1870 to 1920. Book highlights the oppression Irish immigrants suffered upon arrival in America.
“No Irish” signs stood right next to the “No Negro” signs. Irish in American seemed to get on with life and flourish. Even to watch the 35th Irish American President get his head blown off in the town square. Without burning down the town square.
Watch Scorcese’s movie “Gangs of New York”. There is a scene where the Irish immigrant is teaching the free black man how to dance.
Also Michael Jackson’s world famous “moondance”. Possibly the most famous dance move in popular culture. Bob Fosse, a white guy, did the moonwalk first.
Another myth dispelled. Everybody borrows from everybody. And most rap and hip-hop is garbage. Cash from chaos. Bread for Circus.
I got more. My father taught all black High School in Brentwood Long Island in the “60’s and “70’s. He was on the front lines for civil rights and racial equality. Also taught outreach for SUNY New York in West Hempstead Long Island.
Bring the school to the ghetto for folks who cannot afford to get to the campus. His brother was an old school Catholic priest, Father Vincent Campi. My Dad was slotted for the priesthood also. Chose a secular profession. Just to highlight his life sentiments.
I worked in Hollywood for 17 years. Worked for many black folks, post Black Exploitation directors and actors. Kevin Hooks (Sounder, White Shadow fame), Michael Schultz, Laurence Fishburne and Nona Gay (Marvins daughter). Plus more.
I got content. Not that you need it. Seems like you are doing just fine. But I am willing to share.
