Sure there are some corny white guys playing the Blues (though there are a ton of well-known black Blues musicians from the past 50 years too: Robert Cray, Keb Mo, Buddy Guy, RL Burnside, etc.) and who probably have elitist attitudes about it. But there are also people who think there hasn't been a good rap record released since 1998, or a good Country song since 1968. People have elitist musical attitudes that have little to do with race.
But the host of this podcast in an earlier show said something like "Black people have come up with much better kinds of music than the Blues" which seems to denigrate all of the great black Blues musicians of the past.
