    Question Does Listening to Rock Make You Racist?

    Just a few minutes of listening to mainstream rock music such as Bruce Springsteen and the White Stripes is enough to make white students focus on the interests of other whites at the expense of black people and latinos.

    White students who listened to Top 40 pop - made by artists such as Gwen Stefani and Akon - were fairer towards other ethnic groups.
    The researchers, who tested 138 students with different genres, say the finding shows that because rock is associated with white people, people unconsciously favour their own race after listening.

    Students were told they were taking part in a study of how funds should be distributed in college - and offered a range of ethnic-based groups to share money between.
    After listening to Bruce Springsteen and the White Stripes, the students handed most of the money to white people.

    ‘Rock music is generally associated with white Americans, so we believe it cues white listeners to think about their positive association with their own in-group,’ said Heather LaMarre, an assistant professor of journalism and mass communication at the University of Minnesota.

    ‘That was enough for them to show more support for a student group representing mostly whites.’
    After listening to Top 40 pop such as Gwen Stefani, Akon and Fergie, the students divided money more equally between white people, black people and latinos.


    ‘Music has a lot of power to influence our thoughts and actions, more than we often recognize,’ said associate professor Silvia Knobloch-Westerwick.
    ‘It has the power to reinforce our positive biases toward our own group, and sometimes negative biases toward others.’
    The effect was multiplied in students who listened to radical 'white power' groups such as Prussian Blue, Skrewdriver and Bound for Glory.

    ‘We saw very targeted, almost punitive take-aways from the African-American and Arab-American groups by those who listened to the radical white power rock,’ Knobloch-Westerwick said.

    Those who listened to the rock music gave more to the white group, but split the rest equally among the other three – in other words they weren't punitive against the others as were the listeners of the white power rock.’
    Participants sat for seven minutes while the music played in the background before they started what they thought was the 'real' part of the study, dividing money between different ethnic-based college groups.

    When each participant arrived for the study, they were told to wait for the beginning of the session.

    They were placed in a waiting room with music playing softly in the background.

    They were not allowed to have access to any other media, including music players, computers, phones or reading materials.

    The participants were then called in and told they had the opportunity to give feedback about how their tuition money should be distributed to four student groups - called the Centres of African American Studies, Latino American Studies, Arab American Studies, and Rural and Agricultural Studies.
    Findings showed that those who listened to the Top 40 music split the funds nearly equally – about one-fourth of the money to each of the four groups.
    Those who listened to the mainstream rock gave about 35 percent of the funds to the white-American group – and roughly equal amounts to the other three groups.
    Those who listened to the radical white power rock gave the most of all the participants to the white-American group – about 40 percent.

    They gave about 25 percent to the Latino-American group, about 16 percent to the African-American group and about 15 percent to the Arab-American group.

    Knobloch-Westerwick said that even mainstream rock, with no race-related lyrics, had a strong effect.
    ‘It shows that it is not just the lyrics that matter. Good, old-fashioned rock and roll – with no incendiary or hateful lyrics at all – was enough of a cue to increase the percentage of money allocated for the white-American group,’ she said.

    ‘This appears to be the first study to show that music genre itself, not just the lyrics, has the potential to be a very powerful influence on people.’

    It's the 'beloved' Daily "Hitler" Mail, so yes, just more idiocy and brain-washing of the readership.

    People may become more influence by Rock music for a simple reason! People can under stand Rock lyrics making loads more enjoyment for one to endure. (Lets twist again) (Rock around the clock) I like them' Old but goodies!

    Why has it seems these days (more than any other days) that there is so many ' IF whites act and do white things' whites are racists? Plenty of Blacks act and do Black things but hey Black actions are normal but acting and doing things white is not! BS

    Idiotic? Yes. With consequences? Yes too.

    It's not really a "new" phenomenon, but you sure can expect to get a good portion of rap and hip hop in tv, radio, supermarkets*, shopping malls and everywhere you'll go, in order to "reduce racial bias".

    And it may also sound the bell for the next round of witch hunt against Folk Rock, Pagan / Folk Metal and even simple Folk stuff like Sixteen Horsepower or Hauk.





    *that reminds me, when I was shopping last week I entered the shop and terrible rap droned through the supermarket. Not from the normal speakers that usually play some music at a standable level. No, there was a black guy doing stuff in the veggies corner, and who had a ghetto blaster positioned on one of the tables and terrorised the customers with this crap. WTF?

    Ein Leben ist nichts, deine Sprosse sind alles
    Aller Sturm nimmt nichts, weil dein Wurzelgriff zu stark ist
    und endet meine Frist, weiss ich dass du noch da bist
    Gefürchtet von der Zeit, mein Baum, mein Stamm in Ewigkeit

    Does listening to rock music make you racist? No - but I sometimes secretly hope it did, because then we'd have a hell of a lot fewer issues with the local punk-rock-induced Antifa.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    I remember that some Blitzere (ANTIFA) protested during an In Extremo concert in Oslo some years ago.

    Antifa liberals are retarded
    Please don't confuse the terms "nordid" and "nordic".
