A saxophone player has claimed that she was assaulted as she played a jazz song in the street by three African American women who said a white girl shouldn't play that sort of music.
Cassandra Struve, 26, was performing in the street outside the Summerfest grounds in Milwaukee, Wisconsin around 11pm on June 26 when the three women approached her.
'I was playing Minnie the Moocher, classic Blues Brothers song,' Struve told WITI. 'A lady with a child in her hand came up to me, smacked me in my face and said, "Dont play that".'
They added that a white girl could not play the song, she said.
After she was hit, she said she was 'instantly upset' and broke down in tears.

Not to be contrary, but I believe it was Cab Calloway, not "The Blues Brothers". He did perform the song in the Blues Brothers Movie though.
An older version...
Cab Calloway - Minnie the Moocher
As it was performed in the movie...
>>Not to be contrary, but I believe it was Cab Calloway, not “The Blues Brothers”.
That’s the most ridiculous part of the story. They identified it as a Blues Brothers song—both of whom are WHITE.
And the news from a foreign paper while our “news” media remain silent. Black on white hate crime? Nothing to see here, move along.
With the child? Generation Inarticulate strikes again.
This episode is a little unbelievable, in my opinion.
“But Struve said the crime was racially motivated and should be treated as a hate crime.”
That’s ridiculous. Only White People can be racists. Ask Obama, Holder, “Reverend” Jackson and Al “Sharpie” Sharpeton. (Sarcasm)
“After the attack, she went to the emergency room and had a CT scan, but she does not have health insurance so told WITI she plans on suing the women to help cover the costs.”
Good luck, the b**** probably hasn’t a pot to pee in.
Better she should have brained the slut with her saxophone. Too bad she wasn’t carrying a concealed firearm.
This is exactly the kind of behavior I would expect with Obama and Holder running the show. Why shouldn’t these women do as they please? Who will stop them?
If this woman had fought back, she would be the female version of George Zimmerman.
At this point, if you are white, you are expected to sit back and take these displays of “diversity”. Try and do anything about it, and the full force of government will be brought to bear against you.
I want all three of them arrested on federal hate crime charges
Ok so they own it all?
Hate crime. Someone should make a “why isn’t this a hate crime?” list and keep track of all these instances.
Anyone remember the “Original Dixieland Jass Band”? First recorded jazz band. That got the ball rolling, so to speak.
Jazz was one of the first multiracial music forms. Whether blacks like to admit it or not. Without musical instruments refined by those terrible whites, then no jazz, period.
I wonder what they would do to this 10-year old white girl singing the blues (UNBELIEVABLE - from America's Got Talent.)
They didn’t care what she was doing. These bullies saw an opportunity to attack a defenseless victim and took it. The music was just an excuse.
Too bad the girl wasn’t armed, but if she had defended herself, she would have found herself on trial.
Sounds like it’s right out of the book “White Girl Bleed A Lot.”
Cab Calloway did ‘Minnie the Moocher’ long before the Blue’s brothers were born. I think there’s old Betty Boop cartoon that features it.
At least she was not trying to jump at the same time!
The 1930s belonged to popular swing big bands, in which some virtuoso soloists became as famous as the band leaders. Key figures in developing the “big” jazz band included bandleaders and arrangers Count Basie, Cab Calloway, Jimmy and Tommy Dorsey, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Fletcher Henderson, Earl Hines, Glenn Miller and Artie Shaw.
There may be a white boy in there some where!
Yep. I almost got to play with Cab Calloway once, in Savannah. But they only needed 2 saxophones, not 3. I did get to shake his hand and chat for a while.
truly unbelievable....like a young version of one of the great unheralded blues singers of the last half-century,
the great Tracy Nelson.
This is vile.
Music brought the races together in the 50’s & 60’s.
These women are trying to bring us back to the Jim Crow days...
Bix, Benny, Bunny, Tommy, Jimmy, Gene, Harry, etc. would be disappointed.
Big Bad Voodoo Daddy also has an album dedicated to Cab Calloway covers.
Funny thing, about half of Calloway’s band is white.
Loved Cab’s Zoot Suits! Got one myself! Hadda be one of the hippest cats to ever hit this rock!
Yes, they were the first to record, but not the creators. I agree that jazz is descended from European classical music.
..instead of reporting the incident and pressing charges. Where are you performing next? Acorn?
He was dressed sharp the night I met him. Had to be in his 80s. Hell of a showman.
Cab Calloway would no doubt be pleased that his music caught on with a young white lady, and upset about a black woman’s violent reaction to the tribute.
Three against one? What’s the problem?
Minnie the Moocher was written by Harold Arlen, a white guy. Here’s a 1931 recording by Cab Calloway: http://xroads.virginia.edu/~ug03/Jukebox/popups/minnie.html
And let us not forget Average White Band from the seventies. One of the funkiest bands of all time.
Yet another footnote for the coming race wars.
Black folks shouldn't play it!
“smacked me in my face “
That’s a crime. Add the element of anti-White hate, and it is a hate crime.
Of course it will never be prosecuted as a hate crime. Hate crime laws were made to put White people in jail for everything they say or do, or don’t say or don’t do.
The Saxophone (A History)
In 1840, Adolphe Sax invented the saxophone.
In 1926, John Coltrane was born.
I had to make some minor revisions...
in the palm of her hand no less. some random child i suppose too
Just pick up a child off the street and hit someone with it, why not?
