12 Childhood Nursery Rhymes You Didn’t Realize Were Racist
Folks, you must check this out. How many of them did you sing as a child or teach your children?
Now some will still say, “Why does everything have to be about race?” Well, my question is the same, why did everything have to be about so-called race?
For Christians that say, “Isn’t this just about being PC?” Well, would we have the children sing an Xmas song that was actually a tribute to satan but the words have been changed? How many won’t even let their kids read Harry Potter because of witchcraft?
This list of 12 could be analyzed at 3 per day, having the children investigate the 5Ws and 1H:
Who wrote it?
What is the song about and trying to teach?
Where was it most popular?
When was it written and popular?
Why would these songs/rhymes be so popular?
How do you view these songs now that you know the real meaning? (The “how” could vary depending on age).
