There goes ‘Brown Sugar’

 


(My new American Thinker post)


Back in the early 1970s, The Rolling Stones released one of their best and most rhythmic songs:  "Brown Sugar."   It was the lead song on the "Sticky fingers" LP, an album as well known for the cover photo as the tracks.  

We learned this week that Mick and the boys are going to retire the song.  Here is the story:   

According to Genius' song interpretation, "'Brown Sugar' runs through different white and Black sexual interactions," including nonconsensual sex between a slave and slave owner, who had "total ownership of Black women but also had total physical and sexual access."

The first verse of the song depicts slaves being sold in the slave trade in New Orleans and being beaten at will: 

"Gold coast slave ship bound for cotton fields/ Sold in the market down in New Orleans/ Scarred old slaver knows he's doing alright/ Hear him whip the women just around midnight."

So no more "Brown Sugar." A 50-year-old song is suddenly racist?   

Let's file this whole story under the "more demand than supply" for anything racist category.

In fact, this is another example of how so many people crack the minute that a "woke" is on the line.   Mick should have told the "woke" on the phone to stop listening to the song if it offended him, her or whatever pronouns they choose.

As a fan of "Brown Sugar,” I always had trouble making out what Mick was saying anyway.   I always thought that the song was about dancing and nothing more.   It certainly did not have more offensive lyrics than "Let's Spend the Night Together," "Mother's Little Helper," "Beast of Burden," or "Shattered.”   

Another win for the "wokes" because Mick Jagger did not stand up to them.  On the other hand, maybe this is a trick to get more people to download a 50-year-old song and make the band a little richer.

Happy # 76 Jim Palmer



We say happy birthday to Jim Palmer.   He was born in New York City on this day in 1945.     

From 1969 to 1978, he was probably the best right hander in major league baseball:   8-time 20-game winner, two ERA titles and 3 Cy Young Awards,    It's hard to think of a more consistent pitcher during that period.

Jim won 268 games, completed 211 and finished with a 2.86 ERA.    He won a World Series game in 3 decades:   1966, 1970 and 1983.    

Palmer was elected to The Hall of Fame in 1991.
