    Jack Johnson

    Famously known to pummel white boxers in the early 1900's, Jack Johnson was charged with violating the Mann Law. This prohibited black men from taking white girls across state lines for immoral purposes. He ended up in Europe.

    Rumor has it that he was denied passage on the Titanic because he was black. Don't know if the timeline fits, but here is a song!

    YouTube - The Legend Of The U S S Titanic Jaime Brockett 1





    Ledbelly also had a song about this.

    I totally expected this thread to be about someone having Bubbly Toes.

    Re: Jack Johnson

    When did he find the time to write boring music?

    I going to continue the small hijack and second the notion...I don't get the hype with this guy. Seems like a great person but, man, is his music boring...and extremely repetitive. Every song sounds the same.


    There was one?

    Re: Jack Johnson

    Is he any relation to Tom O'Leary?


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    Its to everyone tastes, you're always going to have fans and non fans. I personally love his music. Very mellow and relaxing music.

    Re: Jack Johnson

    I agree, to each his own...

    I love Jack Johnson. His lyrics are very deep. Obviously, not all songs like Bubble Toes, etc. but I think his music and lyrics are awesome. What other artist do you know donated 100% of the profits from his tour last year to charity???????

    Nobody is saying he's not a good guy, he just happens to write boring music.
