The Rediscovered Country




In the midst of all the hullaballoo over Mueller, Easter Worshipper Bombings, Game of Thrones, Earth Day, politicians financial records, Justin Bieber, Student Debt plans, Rudy Guliani, one of the worst things you can imagine happened.

Yes, somebody who almost 99% of Americans have no idea was; who died in 1986 after a career that reached its pinnacle in the 1940s; turned out to have uttered some racially biased words in her past.

Yep… a popular 1940s singer, who performed decades ago, and died in 1986 turned out to have recorded some songs with racial overtones in the words. She didn’t write the words. Nor did she say expressly that she advocated for the words. She was recorded singing them. And THIS CANNOT BE TOLERATED!!!!!!

That’s right…. statues must now be removed. Programs must be changed. Attitudes must be adjusted. And under no circumstances must the recording of her most famous song EVER BE HEARD AGAIN!!! Let the name of Kate Smith be stricken from every book and tablet, stricken from all pylons and obelisks, stricken from every monument of America. Let the name of Kate Smith be unheard and unspoken, erased from the memory of men for all time.

So let it be written, so let it be done!
