Thread Name: Pro Slavery Songs
Subject: RE: Pro Slavery Songs
I have found a few, from song booklets published in early 19th century Edinburgh. By that time, the slave trade was in terminal decline and its advocates were pretty desperate. If I could have found *any* redeeming feature of those songs I'd have included them on my CD-ROM of the music of Edinburgh (as I did with several Tory songs), but they were just raving racism with no trace of wit or imagination.
