    Yes!! I've just started getting that too - the video's all playing - what's up with that? I've even tried a number of stop autoplay addons for my browser but they have done nothing. The site seems to have a lot of bugs lately.

    Rap is cool. I hate country music, that stuff is for hillbillies so maybe I am racist against white people only I am white.

    No.

    I'm not a guy but I am white and I hate rap. NOT because it originated in the black community but because it isn't music. It's just some guy making ugly faces and weird postures while talking to a beat.

    I grew up in the era of Classic Rock and was taught to play classical piano by nuns, so I think I know what music is and that doesn't include rap.

    My all-time favorite rock song, still, is Do You Love Me (Now That I Can Dance) by The Contours and the last I saw, they were all black.

    And, you need to embed media so that it doesn't Auto-Play. It's VERY annoying.

    And rude.

    If so, I apologize to the OP.

    I do know that if people click "Attach" before a video has completely finished playing in the preview, it will autoplay. I used to do that, myself, but I've learned to wait for the full run of the video before I attach it.

    Thanks, Syl.

    I don't think you have to worry about it. Unless you don't listen to any black artists. 90% of the music I listen to is by black artists. But I don't listen to rap at all and very little hip hop. But I am old and that has a lot to do with what I relate to in music.

    I count The Platters' The Great Pretender among the top ten classic rock songs of the era.

    I can't help but wonder if any rap "artist" could hit, and hold, high notes like that. They may call themselves artists, but they certainly can't call themselves singers.

    I don't get it at all. Blacks have been the leaders in music since the beginning of time but this stuff requires too much effort to like.

    I do so agree.

    From the earliest moments of Jazz to the great Rockers, blacks have been the leading wave of great music. I see rap as just a "We are different...we are us." statement and really having nothing to do with music, at all.

    Not to mention that black classicists are among the top great musicians. Andre Watts is a case in point. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

    Sorry for only including the Wiki link but the stupid autoplay nonsense posted by the OP would only ruin a video.

    The Platters were great, the music and the voices were wonderful. Rap is garbage compared to what The Platters produced.

    I hate rap music because it sucks...has nothing to do with race. It is not singing, it is talking in rhythm with music. It is usually crossing some line, especially being crude regarding women and violence.

    Music is just that and can be enjoyed or disliked by anyone. A person's race doesn't come into it.

    Basically it's not even music. Just because blacks embraced such an ugly "art" as their own, it doesn't mean I'm a racist.
    There is a lot of great music from black culture that I love.

    Country/western music is disliked and ridiculed by a lot of people. Is that because they're racist?

    In theory, Rap isn't music. Music requires a melody line, which rap doesn't have. Its technically Poetry and Percussion.

    Or better yet.....

    It's just a preference like tater tots or french fries; mayo or mustard.
