Well, if he's dark-skinned, then how do you know Jandek isn't taking up
basketball or gangsta rap? Point being, I think many of us saw it as a
gross racial (not nececssarily racist) generalization, and wanted to point
out to you that perhaps skin color is not indicative of musical genre.

In response to Ross, while it's fair to say that the list certainly is
more interesting with a bit of controversy, there's plenty of
Jandek-worthy controversy to go around. We don't need racial and sexuality
oriented jokes to 'keep things interesting.'
