number 6 Beatles:'No Pakistanis' Salon article (26) RE: Beatles:'No Pakistanis' Salon article 14 Apr 13


I never cared much for the Beatles.

but

regardless

I question this recording ... neither Paul or John ever exhibited any racial bigotry either in interviews, or in any of their songs. In fact at the time of this recording Lennon returned his MBE in protest "I am returning this MBE in protest against Britain's involvement in the Nigeria-Biafra thing, against our support of America in Vietnam, and against 'Cold Turkey' slipping down the charts.". This act of protest was certainly not the act a British redneck white supramacist would do.

Was this recording some sort of parody on racial bigots in Britain at the time .... I certainly would not condemn Lennon and Mcartney as right wing bigots based on this.
