I’m new here, but I’m SOOOO glad you put up the right version- the one with the extra funky syncopation on the snare at the end. That’s been like my mental secret weapon. My butter.  I made a file of just the snare drums from the breaks. No kick, no voice, no ‘air or hihat- It’s cool to hear all the snares in a row (20 seconds long, i believe). happy music!

Funk is a process; a process changing one’s perception of self in time and space. One of the greatest songs in the history of popular black music is James Brown’s sixties soul classic, ‘Say It Loud, I’m Black And I’m Proud’. Never before had any popular entertainer captured the mood of Black people. It was The Godfather dancing under the white hot and exacting glare of television light. Adorned in black silk papa humped and slid, leaving sweaty images of obsidian Jesus on the back of his shirt and shinning images of Blackness in the national consciousness. They hated James. We loved him. As we raised our voices in song a dark cloud of polution also billowed as hundreds gathered to burn James’ records. Now they love him. And We hate to see mug shots of him on every national news telecast and tabloid; hair laid to the side ‘processed’ like unfortunate strands of genocide. Good song though!
