Bigotry and the Afrocentric “Jazz” Evolution is a reminder that much of the music that drives the music industry and contemporary world culture has Afrocentric origins. The controversy surrounding the ownership of “jazz” involves an intersection of residual “slave mentality” combined with a perpetual mode of exploitation of artistic innnovations that result from African-American creativity. Examining the evolution of African-American music within the context of its socio-cultural history makes the most salient aspects of the roots of innovative “Black” music increasingly clear. The success of “Jazz” and other African-American music gradually attracted the attention of people around the world. As a consequence, many Eurocentric capitalists and institutions insist upon claiming ownership and control. Racism and sexism provoke illogical responses and behavior throughout society. As a result, many people love “Jazz” while refusing to acknowledge the progenitors of the music.
