I like to play and vocalize on "Black and Blue" and I once had someone, I forget who, tell me that " no white man should sing that song." I disagree---- I can feel "black and blue" just the same as any other person can. It seems to me that it is more "racist" to assume that only Blacks are "Black and Blue." Isn't it the human condition?
