Disco Demolition Night Was Not Racist, Not Anti-Gay

But couldn’t it be said that a lot of the built-up anti-disco sentiment was because of artists getting involved with music birthed outside of the mostly white rock scene at the time? I sympathize with your argument but I’m skeptical since much of what was hated about disco were things associated with black and gay culture in music.

Could it be that it’s less more about a sort of unconscious dislike of these elements considered foreign to rock music at the time?
