Thread Name: Jingle Bells Originally Performed in Minstrel Show
Subject: RE: Jinge Bells is Racist
What Jackaroodave said. Nobody claimed the song was racist, so the opening post contains lies...or mistakes. Or it may be just an attempt to get a BS/political fight started above the line.

And just because it began as a minstrel song, doesn't mean anything. If things are labeled "racist" because their origins came from a racist time, everything that was created in countries where and when human trafficking was legal, is racist.
