Blues and the White Critic

"Some blues critics become irritated if even one other group of white people is at a club when they arrive. ... The irony is that the critics themselves are overwhelmingly white, but seemingly blind to their own race when critiquing a club for its own clientele."
       —From Jennifer Ryan's article "Beale Street Blues?" in Ethnomusicology.
