White Anglo-American civilisation coped with the civil rights movement and Windrush because:
1) rock music was a legitimate white cultural identity
2) there were white artists who were able to successfully appropriate blackness (elvis, jagger, dj hype, danny weed, kc of the sunshine band, eminem, timberlake, dem 2, michael jackson)
