Morning Song – Mississippi Goddam

October 26, 2016

Outsourcing today to a regular correspondent—because every word and comma that follows here is perfect:

Do you think Nina Simone wrote Mississippi Goddam to express her anger and frustration with a country in which white football players are putting nooses around their black teammates necks during practice? What’s that you say? She wrote it 52 years ago, not this week? 

Like the woman said, that’s the trouble with “do it slow”.
