Abstract

Popular music has long been a site of communication across ethnic and racial categories. These interactions, however, have never been "neutral" processes of exchange, but politically charged, complicated by economic and cultural power relationships, and rendered problematic by racism. This article examines some of the cultural and political effects of these processes, particularly within the cultures of young people in Britain and the United States.
