Nick from the Jamaican State of Mind podcast joins the Reggae Lover crew once again to discuss the topic: Why does Black America hate reggae?

We analyze different aspects of culture, education, travel, and politics in an attempt to come up with answers.
White America had somewhat embraced reggae music by the time Bob Marley’s “Legend” album dropped. Black America as a whole never really joined the movement.
We also discuss the reasons why we care about this in the first place. It is a very real conversation from the heart, and worth a listen.
