I don't get it. The only thing about this tune that has any reference to
race is the title. The lyrics themselves are race-neutral. Who is injured
by that an in what way? Have we become such whim-worshippers that we must
'unpack' each word and expunge every implication of racism?
If so, kindly direct me to the way out.
