Kate Smith’s 'God Bless America' out at Yankee Stadium over racist songs
The New York Yankees have decided to no longer run Kate Smith’s version of “God Bless America” during their seventh-inning stretch because of Smith’s affiliation with songs that carried racist lyrics.

Most famously, Smith sang a 1931 song, “That’s Why Darkies Were Born,” which opened: “Someone had to pick the cotton, Someone had to pick the corn, Someone had to slave and be able to sing, That’s why darkies were born.”

I want to hear the offending song. It sounds hilarious.

if you can't stop the lies, Shamir.

I guarantee you that we can.

And you absolutely will regret our actions.

What's funny is she was some kind of progressive who wanted to point out the absurdity of racism so she sang this song. It was not because she was racist. It was the complete opposite.

The the liberals are mad that one of the first liberal progressives sang a satirical song about racism because there was no tv back then and that's how you got your message out? Okay?
