Thread Name: Why is 'Dixie' considered racist?
Subject: RE: Why is 'Dixie' considered racist?
I think the whole issue is codwallop, myself. It is a regional paean, a provonical home-song, and it is thought to be racist only by those who cannot control their thoughts enough to distinguish between the region and its bad history. This is like saying that songs extolling the glories of the French countryside are barbarian because Bonaparte once marched there. G'y'amme one large break, folks.
