Reggae is one piece of entertainment that I, my family, and a lot of other people enjoy. It is more than just entertainment because it is also culture. Reggae isn’t something new or a trend; it is a type of musical entertainment that has existed for a very long time. It is very popular; not mainly in America, but other countries. One famous person involved in reggae music is somebody you may know about: Bob Marley. His songs are known by many reggae lovers and people who don’t like reggae. His songs and music is loved by many people and is popular and known around the world. Reggae is faced with many stereotypes. Most people believe that a lot of the people that listen to reggae music or compose reggae music are potheads. That is not true, just another stereotype. When you think about it, it seems like all or most music has some kind of stereotype put on them. For example, most people believe that country music is either all sad or just hillbilly music. Reggae music has stereotypes put on it like all music. Of course, there are potheads in the world and maybe some of them are known for listening to reggae music. That may be where that stereotype came from. Some songs really contradict with the idea that reggae music circles around drugs or other negative things.

Compared to other music, it can be beneficial to listeners and lighten spirits.
