Hipster Racism in 1979

Here is an article written for the Village Voice in 1979. It was written by Lester Bangs, at the time an important music journalist. Entitled “The White Noise Supremacists”, it is about the racism Lester has been encountering in the Punk and New Wave scenes.

Truly worth checking out!

One thought on “Hipster Racism in 1979

  1. I’d always kind of thought of Lester Bangs as exactly one of these asshole hipster racist types, which he seems to kind of admit is exactly what he is. Seriously, I would have thought this was an article *about* Bangs, not by him, but it appears that he somehow has tried to rise above it. I’ll give him decent credit for that.
