I think I'm in a time machine:
This morning it was told to me that the reason we don't have drums and saxophone at our church was because they are not a part of "our" culture.
Then, "if we had more African Americans then it would be appropriate."
(I didn't say a word to solicit this information. I was wearing an iPod with the sound turned off.)
I have gone from the 12th century to Jim Crow in a month.
