Subject: RE: Slavery-Era Song, 'Run, ======, Run'
OK, kat. You can have the last word on our disagreement. I know that is important to you.
Now, back to the discussion. In the original post, it was suggested that the song was written by blacks for blacks. Is there any other reference that can be provided? I am interested in this as a possible group discussion with other folkies of songs whose titles would be controversial now, but when sung in the context for which they were written were fine. That seems to me to be a legitimate discussion.
