History happened. Attitudes change. Changing attitudes don't mean that we should attempt to erase history or not attempt to get under its skin. Songs like this help us understand the feelings of people, who were just like us, but lived in different times, different cultures and with different consciousness. Singing about these things doesn't mean we would condone them now, let alone glorify; however, nor are we in a position to condemn. On the other hand, I think that inhumanity among people, whenever it occurred is to be condemned without reserve. Further, now that we are conscious of the extent of animal's capacity to feel pain and fear, we should also condemn any present cruelties towards them.
