It seemed to be your argument to me. You said you didn't like it, and the only criticism you gave was that it was made for mass audiences and how. Show me where you said otherwise.

Still waiting.

Black groups were hugely popular with white youth.  

Why was Hendrix a supposed threat?

The counterculture embraced Jimi.  Have you ever watched Woodstock?
1. As I explained a segment of white(often conservative ) America viewed him as subversive 

2. Again though none of them were Hendrix or as radical as Hendrix 

3. Because his lyrics and sound  freaked them out the same other styles freaked people out like Kiss did  during their time or Marilyn Manson not to long ago .

4 . Yes I know the counter culture did that my point he was perceived as a threat to status que  as were a lot of things during the 60s
So, 'they' sent in Elvis to save the day?  The man they wouldn't televise from the waist down because his movements were too provocative.  

Doesn't make a lot of sense.

'They' should have called on Pat Boone.

By comparison I suppose they thought he was he lesser of two imagined evils . But your right it was a bad plan as most plans based on fear are .

Yeah, I think that's the story Amarok is confused about - Pat Boone  in the 50's being promoted as the "clean" alternative to black rhythm'n'blues artists, like Little Richard and Fats Domino, as well as sexually explicit Elvis "The Pelvis" Presley - who was also a white guy playing black people's music for white kids. Not sure how Hendrix got mixed up in there...  Huh

Once again it wasn't a smart plan. Then again neither was telling kids to hid under a school desk during a nuclear attack . But they did it .

Yeah, I read what you stated - it's confused nonsense. Nobody "pushed" Elvis as an alternative to Hendrix. You got your 50's and your 60's black guys mixed up, but you keep on arguing for pages, because you always have to have the last word and you don't feel the need to provide a citation, but instead you angrily repeat the same points, over and over.
