Negerslavens flugt over plankeværket (Run, Nigger, Run)

Et så frygteligt ord“, kalder dansk kulturmarxismes hovedorgan, dagbladet Information, det engelske substantiv “nigger”, som det efter kulturrevolutionen i 1960’erne ikke længere er tilladt os hvide mennesker at bruge.

Sådan har det selvfølgelig ikke altid været. Det bevidner den autentiske amerikanske sangskat f.eks. om. Musikalske pionere som Fisher Hendley, Uncle Am Stuart, Gid Tanners, Hertchel Brown, Earl Johnson og Uncle Dave Macon indspillede i 1920’erne en række folkeviser, der bar titler som Nigger, Will You Work?, Nigger In the Woodpile, Talking Nigger Blues, Nigger In A Fit, Nigger Loves A Watermelon, Nigger In The Cotton Patch, Kill That Nigger Dead og Run, Nigger, Run.

Ifølge musikhistorikeren Paul Oliver , så er den muntre vise Run, Nigger, Run en “old slavery-days coon-hunt hymn, which was widely song by Blacks too“. Her har både sorte og hvide kunnet få sig en sund latter over bortløbne slavers fortrædeligheder under den vilde flugt fra slavepatruljen“the pattyroller”, som det hedder på ebonics, den amerikanske negers sære pidgin-engelsk.

Run, Nigger, Run blev omkring 1926 indspillet af Gid Tanners berømte kvartet The Skillet Lickers:

Oh run, nigger, run; well the pattyroller will get you
Run, nigger, run; well you better get away
Run, nigger, run; well the pattyroller will get you
Run, nigger, run well you better get away

Nigger run, nigger flew
Nigger tore his shirt in two

Run, run the pattyroller will get you
Run, nigger, run; well you better get away

Nigger run, run so fast
Stoved his head in a hornets nest

Run, nigger, run; well the pattyroller will get you
Run, nigger, run well you better get away

Nigger run through the field
Black slick coal and barley heel

Run, nigger, run; well the pattyroller will get you
Run, nigger, run well you better get away

Some folks say a nigger won’t steal
I caught three in my corn field
One has a bushel
And one has a peck
One had a rope and it was hung around his neck

Run, nigger, run; well the pattyroller will get you
Run, nigger, run well you better get away

Run, nigger, run; well the pattyroller will get you
Run, nigger, run well you better get away

Oh nigger run and nigger flew
Why in the devil can’t a white man chew

Run, nigger, run; well the pattyroller will get you
Run, nigger, run; well you better get away

Hey Mr. Pattyroller don’t catch me
Catch that nigger behind that tree

Run, nigger, run; well the pattyroller will get you
Run, nigger, run; well you better get away

Nigger run, run so fast
Stoved his head in a hornets nest

Run, nigger, run; well the pattyroller will get you
Run, nigger, run; well you better get away

Nigger run, run so fast
Nigger, he got away at last

Run, nigger, run; well the pattyroller will get you
Run, nigger, run; well you better get away.
