Get ready for more cancellation.A University of Nevada-Reno lecturer’s had a change of heart.Or, at least, mind.For Nevada Today, university senior music lecturer Kate Pollard’s written of her “own anti-racist journey.”The result of her travels: She’s nixing songs she used to salute but now perceives as problematic.As it turns out, most all of you have dabbled in the depths of sinister songs while never knowing.But today’s a time for teaching. Per her piece, Pollard was once like you. When she began as a middle school teacher, Kate held to the songs upon which she’d grown up.

What a moron. Jingle Bells refers to sleigh bells, which I really doubt is a Southern thing. Do all these bimbos get brain infections from inhaling incense at Whole Foods or something?

FTA:slave owners used to put bells on slaves to keep track of them, which the jingle bells are referencing. I was expecting 'Ante Bellum' to be the reason for canceling Jingle Bells. Nevertheless, Belgium is now off all European tour itineraries, and the Liberty Bell must be disposed of ASAP.

Insane. “Jingle Bells,” refers to holiday bells on a harness connected to a horse-drawn sleigh. If bells were attached to slaves— and in practical terms that seems highly unlikely, however supported by the research— a connection between the two applications seems—ah— TENUOUS at best. Ludicrous— as if the sash cord of an overhead garage door were slip-knotted, and suddenly the FBI was called in because of its resemblance to a noose used for lynching ...oh, wait...

Yet another feckless academic who magically is able to find the racist intent and secret code words that normal people don't see. Even when it is pointed out to us, no matter how hard we look we still can't see the racism. Only crazy liberals, academics, and activists are apparently enlightening enough to be able to decode and see the racism in everything.

I don't if anyone here has been watching the History Channel shows on the Food that built America but it has been an interesting series on Heinz, Lays, Hershey,etc. Anyway, last night's episode was a new one on the Good Humor Ice Cream company and a competitor who invented the popsicle. All good so far until the ending of the show when they had on some rapper who said he was hired by the GH Co. to write a new jungle as the old Good Humor jingle was racist. I kid you not. Well, another show/series I will be cancelling.
