102: Neil Young - Southern Man

In this week’s episode I talk about Neil Young’s song, Southern Man . I discuss the 3 iterations of the Ku Klux Klan. I discuss the book, The Clansman: A Historical Romance of the Ku Klux Klan, and the movie, The Birth of a Nation, that brought the Klan back from extinction. The we go positive with Daryl Davis and discuss the Black Lives Matter movement.


Neil Young Southern Man is off of the album After the Gold Rush

Lyrics Discussed

I saw cotton and I saw black. Tall white mansions and little shacks. Southern man, when will you pay them back?

Southern man, better keep your head. Don’t forget what your good book said. Southern change gonna come at last. Now your crosses are burning fast. Southern man.
