Being Judged For Liking Sugarland and Country

Sat, Aug 6, 2011 at 4:56 PM By: Love On The Inside

As far back as I can remember, I've always been judged for the music I like. Because I'm black, my peers growing up expected me to like rap and hip hop and R&B. Well, I don't, except for a few songs here and there. I've always loved pop and soft rock and was a total teenybopper from 1998 til 2001. ('N Sync FTW!) I'm very much ecceletic in my music tastes. And now, occasionally, I'm judged for liking country. I don't know why, cause I'd rather listen to Taylor (which is saying a lot) than Lil Wayne (who needs to seriously ditch the grills) swear every two minutes.But, there's nothing no one can say to change my mind about my Jennifer and Kristian! Sugarcube for life!!!

    Most of the people who judge me ONLY listen to rap and hip hop and R&B and nothing more. Anything else is too...."lame" for them. Oh, well. I'll never stop listening to country!

    I agree with everybody else here. Just be yourself.....if you like country music, then you like country music. Keep on listening to your Sugarland! =)

    I know what you are saying....I have a good friend who's African-American, and she also loves country music.....she doesn't care what other people think.....she likes who she likes....you should NEVER have to apologize for being yourself....if others criticize you for being you, then they aren't worth wasting your time......Always be yourself.....

    I hate that to. People say your black so you listen to rap and hip-hop. I say what kind of music do you listen to? I'm glade that you like country music because you said you like the music better.

    You like what you like, no one should judge you for that! I'm sorry that happens, but just keep listening to good music, no matter the genre or artist!

    Have you ever watched Darius Rucker's Backstory? Image trying to be a black Country singer. "Stand Up" "Little MIss" and let them know that there is a whole new world filled with love and family and it's in SugarLand!

    I hate how people just expect you to like something just because of looks....definatly stand up for what you love! People bother me all the time for liking country cause everyone likes rap...but I don't care what they think because I love country music and I LOVE sugarland I would never change who I am for anyone!!!!
