Darius Rucker (formerly of Hootie and the Blowfish has been getting racist tweets.White folk and their hatred, Will it ever stop? Funny how they have no problem appropriating and profiting off of every aspects of black culture, yet want to keep "their" country theirs, when it was never fully there in theirs and the first place, as we all know the influence of old time black performers on the genre to start with. Not a huge fan of the current sound of country but still, this is a slap in the face

    

Darius Rucker Responds To Racist Tweet: 'Is This 2013 Or 1913'

     

     
                                      
 

Country singer Darius Rucker questioned what century it is after receiving a racist tweet earlier this week.

The "Wagon Wheel" singer from South Carolina -- who just released his third studio album, "True Believer," on Tuesday -- was the target of a racist tweet from a user who thinks he should leave country music "to the white folk." The Grand Ole Opry member was left pretty astounded from the message Sunday.

The racist tweet and Rucker's response quickly made headlines, and one user asked why he would retweet such a hateful message, Yahoo! Music notes. "So the world can see them," the musician responded.

Rucker also discussed the act of racism in a May 21 interview with Rolling Stone.

"I was absolutely shocked," he said. "Sometimes people will say, 'You're not country,' and I know what that means, because they can't be talking about the music. But when somebody says to leave country music to the white folks, that is unbelievable to me... But that's life. That's something that I'm going to have to deal with the rest of my career, because I'm a black guy in country music and there are people who don't like that. But it's not going to make me quit."

Previously the frontman for 1990s rock band Hootie and the Blowfish, the 47-year-old made a foray into country music in 2008 with the single "Don't Think I Don't Think About It." Vibe magazine notes Rucker's transition has been hugely successful. He is the "biggest African-American country singer" since Charley Pride climbed the charts more than 40 years ago.

sadly, not surprised. 

i'm sure he knew what he was getting into with the genre and some its fan base. 

damn shame that people can't just let the man make music. 

don't like him, don't listen. it's that simple.

The very LEAST they could do is wikipedia the history/origin of country music before they start tweeting sh*t.
