The song 'Desolation' has the verse:

"The captains of whalers are abolitionists
They go in for amalgamation;
A nigger or a Portuguese is treated like a man
But Americans are dogs on Desolation."

Which sounds, depressingly, exactly like the kind of nonsense you hear being whinged by racist, whites-first types in 2017!
