Robin Thicke isn't the first (nor will he be the last) white dude to build a lucrative career on appropriating black culture.
The funny is thing is that he's one of the few to have earned the respect of black listeners (that is, until he filed that preemptive lawsuit against Marvin Gaye's family over "Blurred Lines," which I think has turned a lot of black people off). But "Lost Without U" and "Sex Therapy" were huge hits on R&B radio, while white pop audiences ignored them.

From purely anecdotal experience black people seem to like Robin Thicke. He's been around for at least a decade and the urban stations have always played his music while he's been ignored in the more traditionally white stations. Lots of black women have said how much they like him. He has no problems getting black rappers to work with him. In his latest video he's got a couple of them plus a video of mainly black women in skimpy costumes.
I don't think he goes out of his way to act 'black' or appropriate black culture. He just sings in a falsetto that seems to work better for R&B music.

R72: R69 didn't say racism doesn't exist, just that the US obsession about race is incomprehensible to people from other countries - and they're right. The rest of the world doesn't have the US history with race, Europe never had Jim Crow laws and even in WW2 American servicemen were issued with pamphlets explaining to them that in the UK it was expected that black and white would be invited to the same events and they shouldn't be shocked by that. The US has a very different experience with race and you shouldn't expect that others see everything the same, it's just not that important elsewhere.
Now go on, tell me I'm white and I don't understand, I've heard that bullshit here before as well. Mixed race actually, and working in the UK at the moment but have worked all over Europe.

True, R92. She's even above Lisa Stansfield, Robyn and Pink, who started out with a lot of success on urban charts. But back in the 80's, there were hardly any rhythmic radio stations. This is why this millenium's acts like Britney, Xtina, Justin Bieber etc. end up on these kind of stations, rather than the soul ones they would have placed on thirty years ago.
For example, from 1984-87, it was possible to hear "rock" acts with danceable songs like Van Halen, INXS, peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, Sting and yes Madge on them.

The main thing about Europe is that most of the black citizens there try to assimilate into the white European culture. In the US, while you do have assimilation or in some cases even mixing of cultures, there is a lot more ethnic/racial cultural separation. A lot of black Americans feel black Europeans "act white". In Europe, it's mostly the Muslim immigrants who separate themselves culturally. White Europeans wouldn't feel as uncomfortable around black Europeans who they can see are assimilating into their culture. When they see black Africans doing their own thing, yes there is a lot of racism there, trust me. If white Europeans ran into a group of non-assimilated black Americans, they would likely feel uncomfortable. I know because I've seen it happen.
PS I'm not for or against assimilation. I think everyone should do what they want. The thing that gets me about "there's no racism or there's less in Europe" is that it's not true. Black people are expected to not have their own culture there.

Anyone who has ever watched a football/soccer match knows that's there's a large amount of racism in Europe. You'd have to have your head in the sand to not acknowledge it. Just check out this random article on it.
"The most important sporting event in Eastern Europe since the fall of the Berlin Wall begins June 8 with the European soccer championships hosted by Poland and Ukraine.
But a complicated racial issue has arisen as the families of two of England’s black players have said they will probably not attend the 16-team tournament, fearing abuse or violence in Ukraine, where the team will play its first three matches. A BBC documentary depicting racism at soccer games there has further inflamed emotions.
At the same time, one of England’s top players, defender John Terry, faces a criminal charge after the tournament of racially abusing a black opponent during a club match last October in the English Premier League. The charge led to Terry’s being stripped of his captaincy of the English national team.
Although racism in soccer has been a continuing problem in England, Italy and Spain, it has by degree seemed to be more virulent at matches in Eastern Europe, with some fans making monkey chants and throwing bananas at black players, while others have given Nazi salutes and chanted, “Sieg heil.”
In 2011, the Bulgarian soccer federation was fined after fans made monkey chants toward the English players Theo Walcott, Ashley Young and Ashley Cole during a European qualifying match in Sofia. Also last year, the Brazilian legend Roberto Carlos walked off the field when a banana was thrown toward him at a league match in Russia.
The British government and the chairman of the English soccer association have expressed concerns about the possibility of racial abuse of players and fans in both host nations, particularly Ukraine. Few families of the English players are planning to attend the tournament, called Euro 2012, a spokesman for the soccer association said.
Ashley Walcott, the brother of the English wing Theo Walcott, said recently on Twitter that the family was avoiding Euro 2012 “because of the fear of possible racist attacks/confrontation.”
A third of England’s team is black. Mark Chamberlain, a former player and the father of the teenage forward Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, has said he will skip the group matches in Ukraine but may attend the tournament’s later stages. The final will be played in Kiev on July 1.
“It’s a major concern,” Chamberlain said in a British television interview. “I think your safety is more important than a game of football. It’s just prudent to keep myself away from it.”
So please stop with the superior attitude about Europe. At least none of the black athletes would be living in fear of playing anywhere in America.
And any region that's responsible for the Holocaust does not get to look down their nose at America about intolerance.

R111 You seem to have missed the point. No-one was saying there is no racism in Europe, the point was that the rest of the world doesn't have the same obsession / history with racism that the US does. To deny that racism is not only integral to the US but was *enshrined in law* is ridiculous. Your argument is specious at best.
Get over your anti-Europe inferiority complex, the rest of the world does not have the same history as the US. It's just a fact, not an opinion.

You're missing the point R112 America has to deal with racism more because there's a significant African American population here. It's very easy not to be obsessed about racism of black people if you don't have a large population to deal. That's how you get away with saying how you're not obsessed.
But the lie comes into play because the moment a significantly different ethnicity enter your population, you have a huge obsession and problem with it. Witness the extreme difficulty France has with its Muslim population and how many riots that have taken place. The lie comes into play every time a black player dares to enter your European stadiums and the blatant racism comes into play.
I'm not anti Europe. I don't have a complex. I'm not even American by birth. However, I think it's incredibly stupid to pretend that Europe, the birthplace of fascism, is so distant from having racism codified into law.

Racism also seems to be more of an issue in America because, well, Americans talk about it out in the open. Europeans don't like to discuss such a topic and it's more "hush hush". You only hear about racism when an incident that is fueled by racism occurs. Institutionalized racism is HUGE in Europe but because that's a concept and not an incident, it is largely swept under the rug. In America, both overt and behind-the-scenes racism are constantly discussed.
