Black Confederates on YouTube

Check out the lyrics:

My master was a good man

He used to treat me kind

When I seen him killed in battle

I swear I lost my mind….

And black is nothing other
than a darker shade of Rebel grey

    Wow. “I killed a dozen bluecoats.”

    WTF? So the (white) singer is ventriloquizing for the black Sgt. York?

    “I fought to save my Dixie, my home and cotton fields.”

    I’m almost literally speechless.

    no, I’m pretty sure the singer in this is an African-American, and this isn’t made up there were Black Confederates according to the Library Of Congress. You should go do some research it’s interesting.
