Why is one of those a slur and the other not, if both describe the same music by associating it with a racially distinguishable audience? If Reggae is called "island music" is it a racial slur to refer to the fact that the music originated with people who come from islands?

Did African Americans not come originally from a place where the jungle predominates as a bioform, and bring their cultural musical styling with them from said provenance? And voluntarily choose to associate themselves with that musical genre through the present era?
