HOTSY TOTSY: MORE ON THE LITTLE NAZIS

The Daily Kos has picked up on my post about the little racist, uh, I mean "racialist" twin music act Prussian Blue. Check it out HERE. (Thanks again, Margot ...)

And I might have forgotten to mention, it also appeared a few days ago on The 18 1/2 Minute Gap blog. Check that one out HERE

Meanwhile, my original post continues to draw more responses than any other post in the brief history of this blog. (Hey! I just realized that today is the first anniversary of Stephen W. Terrell's Web Log!) 40 comments last time I checked. I wish my newspaper columns and radio play lists got this much reaction.

After reading all those comments, many readers of this blog are -- rightfully -- amazed that here in the 21st Century there are actually Americans whose main concern is the impending "demise" of the White Man, a situation they feel can best be cured by suppression of other races. These "White Power" types are actually threatened by the "multi-cultural stew" of modern America.

Don't get me wrong. I love white people. Some of my best friends are white. Hank Williams was white. Elvis Presley was white. Rodney Dangerfield was white. Ooops, he was Jewish. That probably doesn't count with the National Socialist crowd.

But as for this "multi-cultural stew" business, when I was a kid in Oklahoma -- hardly a hotbed for progressive thought -- we used to have a sing a corny little song called "An American is a Very Lucky Man." My favorite verse went like this:

An American is a very lucky guy
He can eat chow mein or borscht or pizza pie ...

I don't like borscht. I prefer tacos. But hopefully you get the point.

And by the way, I was delivered into this world by a bonafide Jewish doctor, so anti-Semite crap doesn't fly around here.

And as a music geek, I can't imagine American music without James Brown, John Coltrane, Flaco Jimenez, Muddy Waters, Lieber & Stoller and so many others who don't fit into the "Master Race" concept.

Life's too short for hate.
