Political Correctness Careems out of Control

Too bad those who do not log in will be unable to view this, courtesy of the late March modifications to ehMac.

May the Flyers never win another Stanley Cup and may the Yankees suffer a World Series drought akin to the Chicago Cubs. Smearing the woman 33 years after her death for a satirical recording made in the 1930s is absolutely obscene. What's next? Will they be burning copies of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn because Mark Twain included a character named N!663r Jim?

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- The Philadelphia Flyers have covered the statue of Kate Smith outside the Wells Fargo Center and will stop using her recording of "God Bless America" as an allegation of racism against the singer has come to light.

The Flyers provided the following statement to 6abc Friday morning:

"We have recently become aware that several songs performed by Kate Smith contain offensive lyrics that do not reflect our values as an organization. As we continue to look into this serious matter, we are removing Kate Smith's recording of 'God Bless America' from our library and covering up the statue that stands outside of our arena."

Earlier this week, the New York Yankees suspended the use of Smith's recording during the seventh-inning stretch while they investigate.

The New York Daily News reported Thursday there are conflicting claims about Smith's 1939 song "That's Why Darkies Were Born." The song originated in the 1931 Broadway revue "George White's Scandals," and was considered satire. It was recorded by Smith and also by Paul Robeson, who was black.
