Yes, to make a very small point. It constituted for a very small portion of my post.
The basis of your entire 1st rebuttal that you claim as "proof" revolves completely around a site that is not considered credible by 5th grade English teachers.

The basis of your 2nd rebuttal completely revolves around a google search.
Well, heres a Google search that has 6 million + results on the matter of Aliens controlling humans minds.

Thank you for admitting that you lost, and that your "proof" was really nothing of the sort.

You probably have never even listened to Elvis before. I have an extensive knowledge and collection of not only Elvis music, but music from the region he is from, from both White and Black artists, and also Cherokee artists, a genre I doubt you even knew ever existed. Also my family which consists of Whites, Blacks, and Native Americans originates from the area. I trace my roots back to Memphis, Nashville, and Knoxville.

Don't get into an argument with me about anything TN, I can drop knowledge on you about the area that can't even be found on a computer unless the computer is at the Tennessee State Museum.

Elvis didn't steal Black music. Only people who are ignorant to the culture of TN from the 20s-50s actually believe that. With that being said, most people are ignorant to the culture, change that, most people are ignorant period.

If you believe that Elvis stole Black music than you also have to believe he stole White and Native music because a large portion of the music he made was originally written and performed by whites and Native Americans from the region.

Blah Blah blah. Blacks had little to no rights during Elvis era and he fed off that and used plenty of black artist songs during those time. I will say he has paid respect to many black musicians, but it's pretty much known he pretty much remixed black music and popularized it amongst whites.

You living or knowing about Tennessee means little to nothing; the truth is the truth.

Soul food wasn't adopted by Southern Whites. Soul food and country cooking is essentially the same thing.

Just so you know, I wasn't being exhaustive in my commentary. I do hear Southern pride verbally expressed by Black Southerners, but I was giving it some context.

soul food:

SOUL FOOD- AFRICAN-AMERICAN SOUL FOOD

food traditionally eaten by African-Americans in the South
wordnetweb.princeton.edu/perl/webwn

"The term “soul food” is used to refer to a type of cuisine that is associated with African-American culture in the southern United States. Recipes for chicken fried steak, cracklins, hoghead cheese, chitterlings, Hoppin’ John, and other popular soul food dishes were first created by slaves who needed to cook hearty and substantial meals to enjoy after a long day of strenuous physical labor. After President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation in 1865, soul food became an inexpensive way for the newly freed slaves to feed their families as they struggled to build a new life."
What is Soul Food?
