Following the Civil War, black Americans, through employment as musicians playing European music in military bands, developed new musical styles such as ragtime and what would become known as jazz. In developing this latter musical form, African Americans contributed knowledge of the sophisticated polyrhythmic structure of the dance and folk music of peoples across western and sub-Saharan Africa. Together, these musical forms had a wide-ranging and profound influence over the development of music within the United States and around the world during the 20th century.

Thanks to Nick Anderson of the Houston Chronicle

Why is the focus here on the journalists? Why not ‘Police States that suppress their people’? Also what the hell does this have to do with the GOP? Do y’all not realize that Gov. Nixon is a democrat?
