    “O Come All Ye Black Folk”



    As some of you may have heard, a conservative, student-run journal at Tufts University called “The Primary Source” published a satirical Christmas carol that ridiculed black students and campus affirmative action policies.

    CNN, which reported on the incident, noted that The Primary Source issued an apology when students sought to have the organization’s campus funding cut.

    The carol, which was a parody of "O Come All Ye Faithful," has since been removed from The Primary Source website. However, I managed to retrieve an authentic copy of the carol, and here it is:

    “O Come All Ye Black Folk”

    O Come All Ye Black Folk
    Boisterous yet Desirable
    O come ye, O come ye to our University
    Come and we will admit you,
    Born in to oppression;
    O come let us accept them,
    O come let us accept them,
    O come let us accept them,
    Fifty-two black freshman.

    O Sing, gospel choirs,
    We will accept your children,
    No matter what your grades are, F's, D's, or G's,
    Give them all privileged status;
    We will welcome all.
    O come let us accept them,
    O come let us accept them,
    O come let us accept them,
    Fifty-two black freshman.

    All come! Blacks, we need you, Born into the ghetto.
    O Jesus! We need you now to fill our racial quotas.
    Descendants of Africa, with brown skin arriving:
    O come let us accept them,
    O come let us accept them,
    O come let us accept them,
    Fifty-two black freshman.

    O Come All Ye Black Folk!

    **************

    So what do you think? Thoughtful Satire? Crass, racially insensitive humor?

    Does knowing that black students make up slightly less than 7 percent of the undergraduate population at Tufts change your analysis at all?

    They are the decedents of their ancestors. What do you expect? They are and will most likely always be racists.

    Nothing has changed...just a different generation of them.

    Just hope that a Black person had nothing to do with it. Black folks participating in some way in stuff like this is becoming more commonplace.

    They never stop, do they? These idiots knew something was going to happen to them, but they do these stupid things anyway.
