A purist who thinks that only black people can play blues is a racist and 
bigot. All they see is the color of the person's skin. Same goes for club 
owners who want a blues band to have at least one black member and label 
owners who would give a deal to a black artist rather than a white one no 
matter of the level of talent.

it works better better with the hold your nose analogy.
