Somehow I doubt Mick will be singing “Brown Sugar”?

Gold coast slave ship bound for cotton fields
Sold in a market down in New Orleans
Scarred old slaver knows he’s doing alright
Hear him with the women just around midnight

Brown sugar how come you taste so good?
Brown sugar just like a young girl should

Drums beating, cold English blood runs hot
Lady of the house wonderin’ when it’s gonna stop
House boy knows that he’s doing alright
You shoulda heard him just around midnight

Brown sugar how come you taste so good, now?
Brown sugar just like a young girl should, now

Ah, get along, brown sugar how come you taste so good, baby?
Ah, got me feelin’ now, brown sugar just like a black girl should

I bet your mama was a tent show queen
And all her boyfriends were sweet sixteen
I’m no schoolboy but I know what I like
You shoulda heard me just around midnight

Brown sugar how come you taste so good, baby?
Ah, brown sugar just like a young girl should, yeah

I said yeah, yeah, yeah, woo
How come you...how come you taste so good?
Yeah, yeah, yeah, woo
Just like a...just like a black girl should
Yeah, yeah, yeah, woo

One thing you’ll never hear at Obama’s White House is Brooks and Dunn’s “Hard Working Man.”

Might I presume that Kanye West be on hand with the Obamas for the celebration of White History Month?

PBS or Obama?

If you don't contribute, this station can't bring you cool politicians like Obama and will be forced to show reruns of the Dole-McCain Hour.

Gov’t celebrating race is racial discrimination, IMO. And then add the insult we foot the bill.

The Stones' song "Brown Sugar" was the first thing that popped into my head when I read the thread title.

I'd love to see the reaction if he did sing it. :)

Today, my wife said I am a racist because I said I refuse to celebrate Black, Asian, Gay, Hispanic, or any other history month, until such time as there is an Official, Christian, Polish, German, Irish, Lithuanian, White Christian male mutt month. Is she right?

Well, Mick does do a pretty good rendition of “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg”.

I almost didn’t say anything, glad i did. I thought that was a funny bit by her. Yet those days SNL was extremely funny.

I didn’t know their political leanings, it was more a comment on Obama’s work ethic or lack thereof.

"And as the flames climbed high into the night
To moonlight the sacrificial rite
I saw Satan laughing with delight...."

40 years later, and it's still a great song. As was Sympathy for the Devil, in its own way:

"I've been around for a long, long year
Stole many a man's soul and faith
And I was around when Jesus Christ
Had his moment of doubt and pain
Made damn sure that Pilate
Washed his hands and sealed his fate...

Makes about as much sense as the NAACP's recent nomination of singer Adele for an NAACP Image Award.

Are we running out of Black artists?
