There is no bias in my revision to Paul Simon's Graceland.[edit]

There was only word in my revision from which bias may be extrapolated: "exploited". But that's a stretch. Let's take a look at a dictionary definition of that term: verb (used with object) 1. to utilize, especially for profit; turn to practical account: to exploit a business opportunity. 2. to use selfishly for one's own ends: employers who exploit their workers.

Both definitions apply in this context, as Paul Simon leveraged his wealth and celebrity in order to solicit source material from impoverished South African musicians, without crediting them as authors. This is explicitly exploitative.

Would you remove the word "slavery" from the Wiki article on US history?

About the edit you made in Zildjian page[edit]

The city of Istanbul was indeed named as 'Constantinople' before. However the city was taken by the Turk's in 1453 AD. After the year of 1453 AD, the city belongs to the Turk's and it shall be referred as 'Istanbul' from then on. As the Avedis Zildjian Company was founded in 1623 AD, it would simply be a mistake to call said city Constantinople. I will change it back to Istanbul to avoid misleading information. Thank you for your concern. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 176.40.169.56 (talk) 17:07, 25 April 2016 (UTC)

@176.40.169.56: As per the citation on the Istanbul page, "the name Istanbul has been in use since before the 1453 Ottoman conquest, but in English Istanbul became common only after Turkey adapted the Latin alphabet in 1928 and urged other countries to use the city's Turkish name"; Names of Istanbul#Constantinople says as much. Also, I don't believe Adolf Hitler was much of a drummer MacAddct1984 (talk | contribs) 17:19, 25 April 2016 (UTC)
