GUEST,Azizi Mudcat - changes in style and profile (361* d) RE: Mudcat - changes in style and profile 25 Jun 14

Hello, Richard.

I appreciate your comment but want to clarify what I meant when I referred to People of Color on Mudcat:

1. I meant that there haven't been many commenters on Mudcat who have publicly indicated that they are People of Color (by stating that and/or who inferred that by their comments about their personal experiences.)

2. I believe that this forum could benefit from a broader base of people who regularly posting on Mudcat - including People of Color.

3. I acknowledged that Mudcat has had a number of discussion threads about various genres of African American and some genres of Caribbean music.
I want to clarify that I have learned a lot from people who have started Mudcat threads on African American music or Caribbean music and/or who have posted to those threads.
My sense is that most people here either don't want things to change or largely want the Mudcat forum to return to the way that it was in the past. If that is the case, then other people-including me- have to either take the forum as it is-including its rich resource which I think could be even richer-or choose to completely leave the forum or at least stop hoping for any changes that we want because they obviously aren't what the membership and/or the administration of this forum wants.

I've been tottering between these choices for a while. Hence my very sporadic commenting here (which I admit mostly promote some folkloric post or another on the pancocojams blog that I started when I got too frustrated with this forum.)

That blog often features a number of credited comments from Mudcat. I thank all those whose comments-including song transcriptions- that I have quoted in those blog posts.
