3.
Music that is made (or was created) by Black people. The evolution of Black music typically follows the following pattern:

1) Black people create a new form of musical art
2) It begins a rapid evolution in the Black community
3) It starts receiving attention from the media
4) Most (not all) of the White population reacts with ridicule, fear and/or hatred. However, many Whites react with curiosity and admiration.
5) A corporation finds and/or creates a white artist as an alternative to the new Black art
6) Its popularity increases among Whites
7) Black people create some new art and gradually move away from the older art
8) Historical myths are created, which have the effect of marginalizing the Black contributions to the art and exaggerating the White contributions
Examples of Black music include any combination of the following:

Drumming, singing, chanting, dancing, the blues, jazz music, country music, rock music, funk, soul, heavy metal, reggae, R&B, calypso, zydeco, and Hip Hop

Historical Fact: The origins of literally all and any music can be traced to Black people.

Historical Fact: The evolution of all musical instruments can be traced to a Black and/or African invention

The term 'black music' is used when someone is referring to 'urban' or 'street' music. To substitute the word 'street' for the word 'black' is degrading and suggests that the street is a black persons place.

Some people say the term means music that originated from African Americans but the definition doesn't fit because it doesn't encompass UK Garage, Grime, Dubstep etc. which are all thought of as Black Music styles. Similarly, Rock'n'Roll is not thought of as a Black Music style dispite its origins.
The MOBO (Music of Black Origin) Awards has now removed Jazz as a category because it is no longer seen as a Black Music style. This fact strengthens the argument that the term is not used to indicate the colour of the skin of the original musicians, but rather the class of the people involved in the scene.

Anyone who believes in racial equality should find the term Black Music offensive.
