That's one of the least offensive things Hucknall's ever written.

By "working class British musicians", he means himself, doesn't he? The big pink-faced dork.

"But I'm not being egotistical, because I put myself second" Yeah, shut up, you bright red nerd.

Also, I feel there must be some African Americans who feel under pressure from white people to be cool, and worry that they're not up to the challenge. Although, as a white British person who has never been cool ever, I wouldn't really be the person to ask.

Hang on, I should be in second on Hucknall’s hierarchy of the races, but I’m not a musician.  The other groups on there apparently don’t need a profession to be cool.

That is the only thing wrong with that list.

My genetic make-up is a potent mix of working-class British musicians and flamenco gypsies, so I'm fucking mortified.

Twitter thinks diversity but preaches homogeny, no change there. Overall, a sensible list, though I'd probably add in the Japanese somewhere - a lot of their 80s synth pop (Chakra, Miharu Koshi) can rival anything we were doing during the same period.

Twitter going wtf at a list of top 5 races is the real racism

I liked it back in the early 90's when him and marty pellow did all that grudging before a competition to decide who would be king of blue-eyed soul and then neither of them won. Not that anyone but them expected them to.

It's really not hard to imagine this as a something from a Brass Eye interview, thrilled are brave lads made the top 2 though.

I've always thought of Jerry Seinfeld as being cooler than "Flamenco Gypsies".

Tbf, I’m pretty sure that attributing characteristics or qualities to a race is the dictionary definition of racism.  Can’t really blame the twitter hive mind if they’ve levelled accusations of racism.

That’s a pretty dated list.

Hi, and welcome to Cool Club - nice. On tonight's show we have African American Flamenco Gypsy act Ringstinging Milleu all the way from Barnstaple (the poor part) . Smokin'. Infusing reggae patois with a Williamsburg stand-up comedy grounding, lead MC Charles 'The Coal Mine Gypo' Schwartz brings it home 'Timisoara style' with their new long player Epicentral Sounds. Groove-ya!

Not a fan of the Grand National, then. How cool.

Obviously, it isn't quite as good because it's foreign. Close but no cigar. But credit where credit is due.

By "working class British musicians", he means himself, doesn't he? The big pink-faced dork.

"But I'm not being egotistical, because I put myself second" Yeah, shut up, you bright red nerd.

Also, I feel there must be some African Americans who feel under pressure from white people to be cool, and worry that they're not up to the challenge. Although, as a white British person who has never been cool ever, I wouldn't really be the person to ask.

And if you look at the examples he cites on the thread, it’s clear that Mick Hucknall doesn’t even realise that most of those musicians aren’t working class.  The Stones & The Clash aren’t close to being ‘working class’ musicians.  I’m not sure if Mick Hucknall needs to find a new category for them.

I'd love to see Hucknall trying to escape from a quilt.  Little legs thrashing, glimpses of the famous red hair, his confused, scrunched eyes signalling "but must I be trapped in this quilt for ever?"

Surely it's not too much to ask.

Name-dropping someone I love (Miharu Koshi- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VGcHGPouJYE) is maybe your lowest, most heartless move yet.  Now every time I listen to her I'm going to think about middle class wannabe decadents musing over why the disabled blacks don't pull themselves up by their bootstraps.
