Osmium Origins: Cotton-eyed Joe-true story/composite? (133* d) RE: Cotton-eyed Joe-true story/composite? 19 Feb 00


Bottom line is that its a very catchy tune. Most professional historians admit that it is almost impossible to judge history - because we cannot know the vibes of the time; what would be considered ludicroudsly racist now might have been the statements of the profoundly libetarian then! Enjoy it and stop feeling guilty that it is enjoyable.
