  4. If it has taken Elton *THIS LONG* to figure out what a racist country this
    is, then I've been giving him a LOT more credit for the last thirty years
    than he ever deserved!

    ahh Guest

    I'm sure alot of the vote had to do with looks and many other irrelevant
    things. John can't bitch too much though because half are black and he
    probably needs to remember that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
    Especially with music. Blacks have done well in the music industry as well
    as American Idol. Are we suppose to feel sorry for them because they don't
    claim 90% of the vote total???

    Bruce, I would love for you to explain why anyone in alt.internet.wireless
    is supposed to care what Elton John thinks about anything.

  8. Sorry folks. That was supposed to be an private email, not a public
    newsgroup post. I apologize for the button mis-clicking mistake.

    Bruce.

    Probably his way of trying to reclaim some relevance , and seem a bit
    more cutting edge , controversial than his bloated , over-the-hill
    white guy from another era - status suggests since whites are slated
    to be a minority by the mid part of this century. Get on the
    bandwagon.

    I mean , how many guys were sitting around saying the same thing about
    buying his white imitation gospel-rock-soul records when you can buy
    Al Green ? Otis Redding?
