The Sandman Origins: John Kanaka (51* d) RE: Origins: John Kanaka 03 Jan 21

john kasnaka has a fine tune and is a work song, apparantly kanaka in australian english is offenasive , however i only discovered this today ,, i do not speak australian english.[ talk about descrating a language] thank god
using the term or not using it is not going to make any difference in defeating racism it is slang that is indeed obscure.
i suppose soon people will be objecting to nursery rhymes such as baa baa black sheep because it mmentions black sheep however
Baa Baa Black Sheep is about the medieval wool tax, imposed in the 13th Century by King Edward I. Under the new rules, a third of the cost of a sack of wool went to him, another went to the church and the last to the farmer
