February has been Black History Month here in North America. As we see even in UB40ís music, everyone has their sufferings and joys as part of the human race, regardless of "cultural" race. I'd like to big up the strength and pride and lasting contribution that every culture and heritage continues to make to a truly global village, including the contribution of reggae music from EVERY heritage. It began with a black history but it grew and continues to grow as how it should and with UB40 setting the trends. Part of what drew me to UB40 was not only their talent but the fact that they are multiracial as reggae is for all people to write it, to sing it, to play it, to appreciate it. There's no longer segregation of the people and likewise there should be no segregation of the music. To me, the unity is like saying play I some music can't refuse it--big love oneness with two of the greats in reggae--integration in every way while still going forward. http://www.demo3w.com/ubb/bounce.gif

Big love always,
