Subject: RE: I'm Rubber . You're Glue: Children's Rhymes
Susan,

In no way were my comments meant to imply, suggest, or infer that one race is more violent than another.

I am wondering if others have noticed any differences in the types of rhymes that different children, youth, and adults appear to prefer to recite and/or perform. If there are any differences, they may or may not relate to the way violence or reactions to violence are expressed by individuals from that group.

I believe that it is entirely appropriate to ask the broader humanities based questions regarding the psycho-social implications of examples of a creative folk art form that is usually not considered creative or an art, but IMO, is very much both.

And, Susan, any other information about my project will be available for your consideration when and if the book is published.

I thank you for your interest.
