Rolling Stones retire classic song 'Brown Sugar' following backlash
The Rolling Stones retired one of their most popular rock songs due to lyrics that depict the horrors of slavery.

The Stones have not played the 1971 hit "Brown Sugar" on their current tour and said the blues classic has been removed from their setlist.

"You picked up on that, huh?," Keith Richards, 77, responded to the LA Times when asked if the Stones had cut the second-most-performed tune in their catalog amid a climate of heightened cultural sensitivity.

For the millenial babies here, the Rolling Stones is a British rock band, one of the many bands involved in the British Invasion of American music markets in the mid Sixties. Like a lot of the British hair bands, they copped on American R&B styles.

Brown Sugar was released in 1971 and hit #1 on a weekly Billboard chart.
Here's the tune.

Gold coast slave ship bound for cotton fields
Sold in the market down in New Orleans
Scarred old slaver knows he’s doing alright
Hear him whip the women just around midnight

Brown sugar, how come you taste so good? Uh huh
Brown sugar, just like a young girl should, uh huh, oh

Drums beating, cold English blood runs hot
Lady of the house wonderin’ when it’s gonna stop
House boy knows that he’s doing alright
You shoulda heard ’em just around midnight


Brown sugar, how come you taste so good now?
Brown sugar, just like a young girl should now (Yeah)


Funny how Brown Sugar causes a stir, but not this.

 
I was watching MASH re-runs and realized how it never would have been made today. It might even get posthumously canceled. A lot of things like that might.

And at the root of this is globalist-communism. They took the for the core of their movement gay politics that has been forming since the 80's and agglomerated woke political elements (trans, Islamo, mysogony, CRT, .... ) onto that. It all piggy backs on gay politics.

Sounds more like The Rolling Stones decided to offer their audiences more socially relevant fare.
This incessant hourly whining gets old doesn't it, everyday they HAVE to have something to whine and cry about. I am glad I don't live my life is a constant state of misery - what a horrible life to lead !

EVERYBODY HATES ME AND MY ORANGE MESSIAH !

Ironically, M*A*S*H was considered a very left wing program, back in the day. It's philosophy was more aimed at protesting the Vietnam War and trying to bring that idiocy to the Korean conflict. Hawkeye and BJ were definitely left wingers, both on the show and in real life.

And today, the idiots would probably consider them to be Limbaugh conservatives.

The death knell would be for "misogyny". And a little racism with "spear chucker" in the early episodes.
