It recently occured to me there could be another option with these vouchers. Suppose the kids came in to be tested every two months and as long as they remained above average they don't have to come to school. Tell them what books cover the material that will be on the tests and let them do what they please. If the kids have passed all of the tests at the end of the school year and haven't spent the vouchers with any schools or tutors then they can cash them in and keep the money. I bet you...

I have to give you credit on this thread, art_gurl. You specifically asked about white musicians. You did not ask about white music. By asking the question the way you did, it was easy to answer. If you had asked about white music, the question would have been impossible to answer, because there is no such thing as white music (or black music for that matter). You might be suprised at how many people are unclear on this concept. Props Gurl!

Christ, where do I start... Horsesh*t. There were two major contributing factors to the end of slavery and neither one had anything to do with the good graces of the slave holders.

They did this, presumably, because the economic advantage of slavery would have undone their stalemate if only one of them had it. But it became threatening for America to be the only Atlantic...
