That's pretty ridiculous. You know it means black as in dark, NOTHING to do with skin tone whatsoever?

SKEPTEDIT: ^^^ I see. I still don't see how it can be racist though.

Yeah, there is racist, white supremacist black metal out there, NSBM, and so on (Goatmoon, Antisemitix, Kataxu) but it's a bit of a generalization to say that all black metal is racist.

I think some bands are...but a majority aren't, I've heard of a couple, but their names escape me. There are more bands devoted to Satan, than devoted to Racism in Black Metal.

No it isn't only National Socialist Black Metal (NSBM) is racist, as it is very Nazi influenced (hence the National Socialist in the name). Yet even that isn't 100% racist, as a few bands are fascist, but not quite nazi's yet, and so aren't racist

Well there are some Nazi black metal bands... but I'm guessing you're referring to the name.

It's black as in dark, not black as in afroamerican.

Some Black metal is racist to an extent.... But not cuz of it has the words "black" in it...

Its cuz of their believes...
Some of the black metal bands believe in neo nazism which is quite racist.

Like Varg from Burzum is one of the most racist guy you'll ever come across!
#12
Well most are actually doing it for publicity and the image that's associated with it (metal and it's musicians being the best, etc.), but there are a good number who are actually racist. Varg Vikernes for one.

there are black metal bands who do have racist themes in their lyrics but an entire genre cannot be racist...

White Metal POWER!


Please close the thread. Black metal has nothing to do with ethnicity.

Maybe if you read the thread you would understand but not sure if you like to read.

It can be, particularly if the band is NSBM.

When you think about it, the ideologies characteristic of black metal can lead to very dangerous thoughts, such as extreme nationalism and white supremacism, as seen in NSBM bands.

This reminds me of the old "Looking to start a satanic metal band" thread

That thread was epic!!!
No other thread in that forum got more replies than that thread! Even after the TS started posting after just a few pages into the thread!!

there is a genre, NSBM (National Socialist Black Metal) that promotes Aryanism, and other Nazi ideals, but its a small underground scene within the genre of black metal, so it's not that big of a deal.
