Ok I am white...but I know that I would not have any racist ideas at Wacken or anywhere else. Hey it is all about music. MUSIC IS COLOUR BLIND! I know it is easy for me to say that I have not experienced any racism at Wacken but I just don;t think it happens there, if it does it is only preformed by a few uneducated idiots!. Ok yeah most are white at Wacken but that is a problem with metal as a genre, not Wacken. I may get contoversial here but please believe me when I say I am not racist... The common conception is that black or not white people listen to RnB, Rap and jungle (Is that still going?). Metal suffers from people thinking it is only white people that are accepted into metal. Wacken has an awesome atmosphere and I cannot wait till this years festival. RACISM SUCKS AND IS IDIOTIC! I hope this message is not taken off.... Oh yeah..hopefully Iced Earth will play this year...maybe...what a way to initiate Tim (Not Ripper)!
