“I thank God for Elvis Presley. I thank the Lord for sending Elvis to open that door so I could walk down the road, you understand?”
Little Richard 1970
James Brown on Elvis Presley
Elvis Presley was admired by Rock Artist of his time. He was, rightly, viewed as a door crasher for many artist. That included many Black Artists.
No, Elvis did not steal Rock N Roll.
It existed. He riffed on it. He took an art form and made it his own. He did so in exactly the way that millions of other artist had done since the dawn of civilization.
Only recently with the advent of the American Social Marxist who lives for nothing more than hatred, division and victimhood has “cultural appropriation” become “a thing.” All Artist across time have borrowed from one another. This act of drawing inspiration and borrowing culture has always been with us.
Elvis Presley was not a Racist. He was not a bigot. He stole nothing. The American Left is mad. The American Left is hatred personified.
Elvis sang about T.H.U.G.L.I.F.E before Pac.
The Hate U Give Little Infants Fucks Everyone
James Brown said, “I love him and hope to see him in heaven. There’ll never be another like that soul brother”
“Elvis Presley was the sweetest, most humble and nicest man you’d want to know.”
