Subject: Gunga Din. Racist or just of it's time?
I'll not post the lyrics but here is a link to them.

Nowadays people just wouldn't publish anything like it but, at the time, it was OK. As a social record of people's attitudes it is a fine example. I would happily sing it at a folk club, just as I would sing hunting songs without advocating hunting.

Would you and why?

Just interested!
