I'm a purist of sorts too.

Most racists and bigots I know (and I know more than a few) seem
to function as if those they hold in disfavor are doing it on purpose
just to annoy them.

But I just don't much care for the sound of the newer blues (or
other music either) but I don't care what you like, as long as I
don't have to be subjected to it to the exclusion of all else.
