Thread Name: Gunga Din. Racist or just of its time?
Subject: RE: Gunga Din. Racist or just of it's time?
I should have added, public performance is quite a different thing. By singing a hunting song you are not necessarily condoning hunting per se, but by singing about racial stereotypes in a derogatory way I can't see how this could be condoned, even by stating clearly it is 'of its time'.
