The Seratones Perform "Don't Need It," "Get Gone," & "Chandelier"


"The Shreveport, La., band is a joy to see and hear," writes the blurbist. Great name, too. Their music reminds me of one of my all-time favorite musical numbers ever posted here, Amythyst Kiah and This Mountain Perform "Myth", which prompted me to write:Of course, now, "everybody hand in hand" has been made a whole lot harder by the Union "electing a new people" by adding a third race with a different language and an alien culture to the South. I do not remember reading about an iglesia pentecostal in Flannery O'Connor's "Christ-haunted South."

Back to the music, these folks making beautiful music together sure does go against the mass media narrative, from A Time to Kill (1996) to the Duke lacrosse case and the "A Rape on Campus" hoaxes, an effort designed to program us to believe that when Southron white boys and a Southron black girl get together, the most likely result would be the former gang raping the latter. [The truth about interracial rape, however, is "that white on black sexual assault is an extreme rarity" (statistically zero), whereas "blacks commit sexual assault against almost as many whites as blacks" (in the tens of thousands under both circumstances).]
