Wow, just wow. Did the BBc tell you this or did you go out and take a poll? How exactly did you come up with that idea?
 

I remember.

Why is this a white and black issue for you? Do you think that white people don't like funk? Maybe your definition of funk is different from mine...Well, obviously it is judging from some of the stuff you post in this thread...Sorry I won't watch your videos. I guess I'm too old to care to since I've been into funk since the 60's and don't need a video to tell me about some bullshit war against it. Thanks just the same.{#Cheers}

Popular black musicians (especially Nile Rodgers of Chic) are what disco had to do with funk. Funk was not collateral damage of "disco sucks," all black music was targeted. Here are some white Americans noting that it is now legal to play funk guitar again. (Edit: When the guitar master admits "funky man I am," that is a race joke, not a music joke. They are celebrating the funk embargo being lifted like it was a Cuban cigar.)

It was a movement called "disco sucks"  triggered by a televised stunt at a baseball game in 1979 that was a kind of disk burning. The culture of drugs, sex, and funky music was a commercial threat to rock and other forms of white music like country, so it was attacked. See the BBC documentary below starting at about 33:00.

Just my opinion of course.
