Is it acceptable for ethnic groups other than whites to listen to Metal/be Emo?

Doesn't matter. Being a certain ethnicity does not restrict you to certain types of music. Listen to what you like. I personally dislike Metal and Emo but people are entitled to their opinion.

Yep I guess that it just got summed up with the fact that it's a personal choice...it's like saying, is it ok for blacks to eat quesadillas? Or for white people to eat Chinese food? Ho hum

That's a weird question. I never though music were to choose a specific group of people... Whatever makes your heart jump to a beat, I believe makes music available to anyone, anywhere.

Why the heck wouldnt it be? Preference in music has nothing to do with ethnicity.

As for the so-called teenage angst fad "emo"... putting on eyeliner, becoming a crossdressing goth wannabe and crying about your apparent horrible life isnt unique to "white people".

Or maybe you're thinking about emo as in emotional... well everyone has emotions (happy, sad, angry, etc) so it's really just ignorant or maybe dumb to even ponder such a question.


well said.
whats with the question? why cant asians listen to heavier music.
i do and no ones like "wtf are you listening to that for. you're not allowed."
and stop labelling people who listen to heavy music as "emo". you probably dont even know what it is.

I believe that anyone can listen to any kind of music, as long as you like it.
So you should ignore the people who are stereotyping you just because you listen to metal.. Or act emo... Whatever that stereotype means. -_-

And if they mean the emotional, then why is being emotional a bad thing? You have emotions for something. Stereotypes are evil. =P

Damn when I read my own message, I realized I have a weird way of speaking/chatting.

Ethnicity has nothing to do with what music you should be listening to. Only the mentally retarded would claim keeps to be the sole audience of a certain genre of music. It's just stupid.

I just have a problem with the so-called "Emo kids" though - those who rant, complaining about their lives and yet have tons of party pics with their friends on Myspace... someone should teach those kids how to kill themselves PROPERLY... that's off the topic though.

Since nobody else has done so, I think I must argue for the topic creator's side (even though it was worded very poorly I think there may be some truth in it).

Suppose you see a well to do young white male, driving the nice new car his parents just bought him blasting "Damn it feels good to be a Gangsta" or "I'm Black, I'm Proud". Now do you truly think that this individual is not gonna be called a poser or tool or anything like that? Would you defend him against someone who did?

I feel that this topic was an attempt to turn around a much more often used statement of a person being too white (or being a poser/other more derogatory words) to listen to rap.

that was somewhat offensive...

but, hey, everyone has agency. it shouldn't matter what your ethnicity is, more the less who you are. people don't expect Jews or Scottish to listen to that kind of music, but they do anyway. it really doesn't matter, and overall, it's ok. just as long as you can still hear after all that music.

Thats because hip hop was primarily made to bring together BLACK community it wasnt meant for the caucasians it just happend to catch on....metal wasnt created by whites for whites african americans had a huge impact on what rock n roll was which is what metal stemmed from its very diverse and meant to be for anyone who relates to it...end of story
