GUEST,BobL Politically incorrect songs (113* d) RE: Politically incorrect songs 27 Jan 11

Please don't forget that the offensiveness of particular words changes over time. I myself can remember "nigger" and even "coon" being, in the UK at least, considered no more derogatory, or at least not *necessarily* so, than is "black" nowadays.

It works both ways: 100 years ago another name had to be found for Sharp's re-interpretation of the 17th-century country dance "Cuckolds All a Row".
