Remember this very timely song from South Pacific? "You've got to be taught to hate & fear..."

I always loved this very timely song from South Pacific, for those of you old enough to remember:

You've got to be taught
To hate and fear,
You've got to be taught
From year to year,
It's got to be drummed
In your dear little ear
You've got to be carefully taught.
You've got to be taught to be afraid
Of people whose eyes are oddly made,
And people whose skin is a diff'rent shade,
You've got to be carefully taught.
You've got to be taught before it's too late,
Before you are six or seven or eight,
To hate all the people your relatives hate,
You've got to be carefully taught!

2. I'll see your "You've got to be taught"

And raise you "God Bless America," written by Irving Berlin, a Jewish immigrant, who signed over the royalties in perpetuity to the Boy Scouts, the Girl Scouts, and Campfire.

Everywhere these unamerican fuckheads show up to tell us how scared and angry they are, we should serenade them with a chorus.
