Thread Name: Gunga Din. Racist or just of its time?
Subject: RE: Gunga Din. Racist or just of it's time?
Peter Bellamy said of the poem in an interview in Come For To Sing Magazine, that it was Kipling denouncing racism in the poem. He said many people misinterpreted it. Don't have the article to hand and don't know if the magazine was ever put on line. Jeri, summed it up fairly well before.
