women of color in metal

wilmslowjohn  asked:

Hi As A white boy may i say i have always been surprised that you do not tend to see many black girls at many Metal bands. I am so glad to have found your site and to see that you like Metal as all music is for everyone there should be no bars to any one no matter color religion or gender as music talks to your soul cutting through all the crap other people try to put between us. Rock on and enjoy

Thanks. There are sooo many women of color that love metal. The problem is we are not welcomed into many scenes. If I didn’t have such thick skin I wouldn’t be able to survive in an all white space getting the dirty attitudes I get just by showing up.
