May sound controversial but there is nothing beyond a blanket statement that explains how these songs were racist (examples from lyrics, or the like). If someone is to write "such and such is racist" then there should also be an explanation of why or how this fits, otherwise it's hardly encyclopedic.stan goldsmith 02:02, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

No mention of the late 1820s-to-1830s song "Zip Coon"
"Zip Coon" was a popular song featured at minstrel shows starting the late 1820s that white blackface performers used to caricature free black men who were trying to fit in with upper class white society.
