"His _into_ music wasn't rap."

In a comment posted to Uproxx.com by a black commenter using the
nom-de-plume, "SonicRulez" in a discussion of an article in The Atlantic
that doesn't recognize Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as black.

"His into music" gets about 1,520 raw hits. There are about 21,200 raw hits
for "her into music," since the feminine pronoun is Acc. - "drew her into
music" - as well as Poss., obviously.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
