Mister Pleco: Cool fact: "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" was the cause for school shootings.

Our eyes have seen the glory
Of the burning of the school.
We have tortured all the teachers
And have broken all the rules.
We marched to the office
And we shot the principal.
Our troops go marchin' on....


You forgot the chorus!

Glory, glory, hallelujah
Teacher hit me with a ruler
Hid behind her door with a loaded .44
And the teacher don't teach no more!

I've always wondered how problematic it might be, having turkeys in the straw. Was it such a commonplace difficulty that someone could write a song about it?
*person listens to song, chuckles* "Aw, yeah. Them turkeys, alright. Always causing trouble with the straw."

GungFu: Decades old racist records in the media trifecta in play!

I dance Lindy Hop and I hear a lot of old songs with racist lyrics being played here in Spain. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9AYSigcYyLo 

"Clap Your Hands on the Afterbeat" features the lovely lyric "corny jiggaboos" sung by a white chick. Regarless of that, it's a nice song to dance to.

"That's why the Chinks do it, Japs do it, ..." From Peggy Lee's version of "Let's Do It, Let's Fall In Love"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GgfNgeWQAAg

And the list goes on.

CSB

While working near Orlando, I could frequently hear the ice cream truck roaming the nearby neighborhoods around lunchtime.

It was conspicuous when it stopped playing 'Turkey in the Straw" and started playing hip-hop as it transitioned from one demographic zone to another.

Now it makes a bit more sense.

Here in Southern California we get the annoying "HELLOOOO!"  At least in Hell Cajon, that is.  My favorite ice cream truck is the one with ground-effect lighting that rolls through after dark, year-round...even on cold winter days.  He likes to park in the same sketchy-ass apartment complexes for several minutes, and then doesn't bother to make more stops on the block after those.  I've never approached it to ask for ice cream, but I can imagine there's more than ice cream for sale.

ILoveBurritos: Huh, the I've creams trucks around here played "The Entertainer"


Most trucks around here play that too. But when I was growing up they used to play the Turkey in the Straw song. One summer they quit and most trucks play some other nameless tune.

Dear White People,

I know you all think that anyone who brings up the racist history behind a lot of things is overstating things greatly. However I think any reasonable human being would also give credence to the converse: That maybe white people understate racism and the impact that history has on the present.

You think you're walking around as a white person, an individual - with no connection to a past that has anything to do with racist thought or behavior. Yet, if many of you examine your lives, and you're honest, you will find that your interactions with people of color are superficial at best. Even more, you would complete eschew any contact with people of color if you could.

I also think white people underestimate how much hurt these things cause black people. Even the most enlightened white people remain brutally and callously uncaring about the every day hurt black people feel when they encounter racist and discriminatory behavior from white people.

It's as if the entire country hung out a Welcome to Fark sign back in the 1700's. This country was built on the lie and the evil that only the thoughts, feelings and lives of white people matter.

That is truly, insidiously evil, especially in the way it works it's way down to even something that should be as benign as buying ice cream.

This just in, if a song is old enough it's a guarantee that someone has penned a version with racist/sexist/offensive/juvenile lyrics to go with the melody.

It doesn't take away from the song. It means you should simply skip that version.

/jingle bells, batman smells, robin laid an egg...

Oh great, so ice cream men are racist  and misogynist. What more can you say of white men giving white phallic symbols to little boys and girls to lick and suck?
 
2014-05-12 08:56:12 AM

Thats_right_ALL_the_tea: I'm pretty sure that melody has existed longer than those lyrics, but even if he's right and it's not:

If everyone forgot that the song is racist, to the point that nobody is offended by it, what purpose does it serve to dredge up the old lyrics? Yay, now a cute little melody is ruined and people that were previously not offended are.

"There is simply no divorcing the song from the dozens of decades it was almost exclusively used for coming up with new ways to ridicule, and profit from, black people."? Well, either the article is redundant trash telling people what they already knew, or that assertion is false because people didn't know about those decades.


Well that was a cake walk.

FTA: Mr. Browne was fairly creative in his lyrics, the song's premise and its melody are nearly as old as America itself.

So he even admits in the article that the tune, the only part of the song that actually comes out of the ice cream truck, is actually older than the racist song that he found.

He's literally acting like a racist Weird Al version of the song is the definitive version that the ice cream trucks are all playing and he admits as much right in the article.

Hey don't lecture white people on racism. We invented it!

PS: Your post is BS.   I think it's lovely how from one sid of your mouth you chastize people for being closed racist, as well as point out they could never know what it feels like, you claim to understand thier motives and feelings.
 
2014-05-12 09:00:58 AM

dahmers love zombie: OK, so because some racist asswipe took "Turkey In The Straw" and wrote offensive lyrics for it, that's what all the ice cream trucks are playing?

I think I may possibly need a bit more evidence.  Like if the first ice cream trucks to play the song played it with the "N*gger Love a Watermelon" lyrics included, and if someone posts a video of that.  Then I'll buy the concept.  Otherwise, it's "Turkey in the Straw".  Which is weird-ass enough for an ice cream truck.


You should read more of the article.  It goes on to talk about how that song (along with a lot of other songs from minstrel shows) was really popular in the ice cream parlors of the day, and thus was one of the first songs used in the music boxes on the first ice cream trucks.

Of course, I don't think anybody who drives an ice cream truck really knows why they play Turkey in the Straw; it's just a catchy little jingle to get kids' attention.  Hell, the ice cream truck that used to go through my neighborhood played nothing but Christmas music, which was really jarring in the middle of July.

I am over forty years old and never knew of this obscure racist version of a tune I have always associated with "Turkey in the Straw" or "Do Your Ears Hang Low?" or even, "ICE CREAM!", but thank you for pointing out how that makes me an awful human being. It must be a heavy burden to possess such enlightenment.

Dear Black People.

If the only tool you have in your tool box is the hammer of accusations of racism, then every single thing you see will look like a ten-penny nail forged by the KKK.

On the other hand, if you are willing to give people the benefit of the doubt before assuming that their actions are based upon racial bias, then you may just help to foster the closer relations you seek.

Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.

Also, it doesn't matter anyway, because they're been flouridating children's ice cream for years in an attempt to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids, so if "Turkey in the Straw" offends you, and you refuse to let your kids eat the ice cream, well, they're probably better off for it anyway.
 
2014-05-12 09:15:01 AM
So if I get this straight, anything associated with racism is forever tinged. Why stop at the song? Then no more trading cars, ice cream trucks, music, actors etc. But were good with rappers, ghetto dwellers and prefessional athletes throwing around n!&&a$ word.
 
2014-05-12 09:16:12 AM

You know it's human nature to associate most with those similar to you, right? That's not something white people do specifically.

And as a white person who spent middle school as a minority, I can tell you completely random, unfounded racism goes both ways. As an 11 year old, whose family came here as poor Irish in the early 20th century, no, I didn't and don't have any connection to the institution of racism you're claiming every white person maliciously, yet unknowingly, participates in.

FarkaDark: So if I get this straight, anything associated with racism is forever tinged. Why stop at the song? Then no more trading cars, ice cream trucks, music, actors etc. But were good with rappers, ghetto dwellers and prefessional athletes throwing around n!&&a$ word.


It's basically a way for the parents to let loose the kids of war for a few minutes.  They might get tired for 30 minutes after that.

Or I assume it's a way since I was one of the kids handed a few dollars by my stressed parents, then ran down the street waving the money like a flag in order to take the ice cream hostage.
