Kate Smith 2

“Maybe it’s time to just scrap the word “racist.” Find something new. Like Racial Disorder Syndrome. And we could have different categories for sufferers of this syndrome: mild, medium, and acute.” – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Kate Smith – That’s Why Darkies Were Born Lyrics
Brothers, sisters, when this world began
There was work to be done
And it seemed that someone
Left it to the colored man

Brothers, sisters, what must be, must be
Though the balance is wrong
Still your faith must be strong
Accept your destiny

Brothers, listen to me…

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

Someone had to laugh at trouble
Though he was tired and worn
Had to be contented with any old thing
That’s why darkies were born

Sing, sing, sing when you’re weary
And sing when you’re blue
Sing, sing, that’s what you taught
All them white folks to do

Someone had to fight that old Devil
Shout about Gabriel’s Horn
Someone had to stoke that old train
That would bring God’s children to green pastures
That’s why darkies were born

  1. I heard about this in the news, but never actually looked up the lyrics. Thank-you for bringing this to my attention. It’s worse than I thought. It’s not that surprising the pro sports teams took so long to ban her song when there are still teams called the Redskins, Indians, Blackhawks, etc…

    1. I always wonder why blacks and/ or dark skinned people seem to be the targets of such hatred. Grave robbery, tomb raiding, tomb robbing is against the law, yet Europeans are still in Africa stealing everything, even the bones of dead negroes.
