The New York Times shared a real STINKER of a piece about jazz musicians claiming that people used to think of jazz musicians as white men.
They totally wrote that.
Had to be a millennial, right? Jazz music was all but created by black people, specifically one Buddy Bolden who was far from a white man. Heck, a quick Google would have saved the NYT a good deal of heart and headache but OH NO …

They deleted it …
We've deleted an earlier tweet to this article that was poorly framed. We apologize. https://t.co/U1nuQMu3Zk

But not before Twitter dragged them relentlessly.
And poorly framed? K.

I'll bet anyone $1000 right now that a millennial wrote this. https://t.co/7fYyu5RpMM

Actual EL OH EL.
So much ignorance! Shouldn’t “journalists” study a couple of years of history? Old school jazz was in Armstrong’s era. Boogie-Woogie (yes) followed with likes of Albert Ammons. Things started to get cool around Art Tatum’s time. Count & Duke & then Bird…all Black and all jazz!

Psh, expecting journalists to do some research? For shame.

Miles Davis … HELL YEAH.
Umm… I see you did absolutely no research about Jazz before writing this. Maybe try googling next time, to get an idea. pic.twitter.com/pma9chC4Ag
