Why do people claim that black people made rock music?

Rock music has heavy origins in old western folk music, without folk music there will be no rock music.

    Blacks are just always trying to claim White inventions, cuz Blacks have no cool inventions of their own and Blacks advanced VERY SLOW compared to Whites cuz Blacks are very slow and primitive. Whites in Europe had guns, muskets, the Roman Empire, and other huge civilizations. While Blacks were still using throwing spears and living in small stinky huts in the jungle.

    Anyways, Rock has many influences, but it mainly borrows from Country, Country came from European folk music, European Folk music came from Classical, which was always born in Europe. Classical is the father of all modern day music. Violins, pianos, and all that crap was made by White Europeans.

    Classical music even to this day is the most timeless music and will never die or get outdated. Even all movies still use Classical music and instruments in the background. It is the best music to show emotion or fit a mood.

    Rock has several origin, but its primary source is the blues. Any musician will tell you this. Rock 'n roll uses the same twelve bar progression, the same chords (typically), and the same strong bass line. Led Zeppelin is extremely bluesy.

  • Rock n Roll was invented by black southerners. One of the first Rock n Rollers was a black lady named Rosetta Tharpe.
