I have no link or even the name of the man who said it, but did anyone else hear this comment on 105.7 FM this morning? He was speculating that the reason for the Keith Urban show at the harbor was to prevent black people from gathering downtown. That struck me as a pretty cynical take on a free concert, which I already thought was a pretty cynical ploy by the NFL to make up for their gaffe of forcing the Ravens to open the season on the road. As I reflect on it though, whether or not that was the reason, it seems to be how it worked out. Strikes me funny.

I had the same thoughts, but the ploy could also have been to draw more rural types to the event so that they could bring additional revenue to the city????

Did it work? Aren't NFL games pretty much primarily a gathering of white people?

"If you are wondering about the inspiration for the title cut, Play that Country Music Black Boy, Carl says, "As a teenager, 'Play that Funky Music White Boy' was one of my favorite songs and, if you are old enough to remember that song, you will also remember that the whole world couldn't resist singing and dancing along. I'm hoping my song has that same effect. Sooooo, get on your feet, clap those hands and be sure to sing along! By the way, all the lyrics in this song are based on actual incidents from my own concert experiences. As a matter of fact, when I think about it now; this song chose me, I didn't choose it. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed living it and writing it."

Thank you for that incredibly relevant post.

This is one of the funniest conspiracy theories I've ever read. Thank you.

Majority white fans in the stands, yes. I wouldn't mind experiencing it myself, but I'm not a big enough fan to spend that kind of money. But black folks are drawn as well..

Keith Urban as black people repellent? I had not considered that, but I think Toby Keith or a Norwegian death metal band would have worked better. Urban is an appealing guy, plays decent pop/country, and rips on the guitar. He's completely inoffensive.



I agree with Chesapeake Spirit...that it was an attempt to draw more people who might not otherwise go to the harbor.

It's been a wonderful past 2 weeks for white folks- MD State Fair, Grand Prix, Keith Urban. Then to top it all off the kkk protests at Antietam battlefield.

It also prevented self-respecting white people from gathering downtown too. :P

Not to mention free newspapers, instant loan approvals, etc.
