So who knew that listening to Bruce Springsteen made you a 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 back 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.

In the light of this news, makes you wonder what The Boss was on about when he sang “I’m on fire”….

  1. Did they not also study the ‘racist’ effects of Black people listening to Black dominated music like Rap ?

  2. There are a lot of messed up people in this world. Including the chowderheads who did this ” study “

  3. Where does that leave me? l particularly like Hendrix and Phil in Thin Lizzy. I also wonder what Clarence Clemons would’ve thought of this study?

  4. Phantom,

    Chowderheads? Shoot the messenger why don’t you.

    Music affects people in various ways. Always has.

  5. Shoot the messenger why don’t you.

    There are so many flaws in this logic I don’t know where to begin

    I’m sending Troll over right now.

  6. The funny thing is that Bruce S is a liberal bleeding heart who has plenty of fans who are the same.

  7. “The effect was multiplied in students who listened to radical ‘white power’ groups such as Prussian Blue, Skrewdriver and Bound for Glory”

    No shit Sherlock? Ian Stewart being the particularly odious individual that he was.

    Wonder were I fit in on my daily dose of punk & ska?

  8. Phantom

    You don’t fool us. We know how deeply you are still hiding in that Abba closet. Come out and reveal your inner ‘Dancing Queen’ 🙂

  9. Don’t let the Commie commenters get you down Phantom.

    They’re probably related to the following Micks:

    The FBI infiltrated hacker group LulzSec via its apparent leader Hector Xavier Monsegur, aka, ‘Sabu’ and some of the major arrests include two Irish hackers. They are accused of crimes that have affected more than 1m people and including an attack on Fine Gael’s 2011 election website.
    Five men were arrested today, including TWO IRISH hackers: Darren Martyn, aka, ‘Pwnsauce’ and Donncha O’Cearbhail, aka, ‘Palladium’.

    They are charged with crimes that have affected over one million people.

    Must have trained in Nigeria!

  10. “Don’t let the Commie commenters get you down Phantom”

    You don’t half talk some bollocks.
