Thread Name: Slavery-Era Song, 'Run, ======, Run'
Subject: RE: Slavery-Era Song, 'Run, ======, Run'
That was easy, kat. It is called demagoguery. I could pull up the discussion where people of color speak of how it is fine, as long as they are using it. You see, it is all about context. Amateur debaters use this gag all the time. The context of the discussion was simple. A musician asked about the song. S/he got what he wanted, as well as a good discussion of it. Then you come along and interject into the legitimate discussion a new element. I guess that is your right. But did you notice how you ended the discussion of the music?
