Why So Sensitive?

Download this song and tell me if it offends you. It is the song that was removed from a school play because the father of one of the grade school actors was offended. The lyrics talk about picking cotton yes, but never does it once mention that they were slaves, maybe they were share-croppers, but who every wrote this lively tune did so to overcome the adversity of a hard labor job. That's why we should cherish songs like this and not ban them. I swear some people are just too sensitive. story

Yes, sensitive and misguided. Some people just hear a trigger word or phrase and start a fuss without even bothering to try and comprehend the context in which the word of phrase was used. See Anonymous' comments regarding my comments on the Willie Lynch post for a perfect example.
