As I've often half jokingly stated, this board doesn't really care about black music

and Tabs' comments seem to indicate a lack of interest/knowledge in black music more than him being a racist. Yeah, acting like "Respect" at #1 is shocking and/or "virtue-signaling" seems willfully ignorant/obtuse but I didn't get anything racist from either his original post or his response to this one (which it looks like he's deleted).
And like Sam, I'm somewhat surprised that you of all people are calling Tabs out over something like this. I mean, I've noticed a few less than enlightened comments re: POC on Babble over the years (not counting troll posts) but generally try to empathize and keep my responses music-focused rather than wagging my finger (this also seems like the best approach IRL but being a Bay Area kid, it's thankfully not really something I encounter too often).
