Thread Name: Donkey Riding - What's Hong-ki-kong?
Subject: RE: Donkey Riding - What's Hong-ki-kong?
The songs and actions are a matter of historical record. They are part of the evolution of western culture and music.
The gestures and language, of course, are unacceptable now, but why waste effort wringing hands about it in every thread on Mudcat?
Would you remove them from study?
Censoring the past is immature. It is there and must be accepted.
