From the The Roots and crew at black-ish, this Schoolhouse Rock! inspired video celebrates our proud Southern Confederate Heritage through the eyes of a slave.
PREVIOUSLY ON SCHOOLHOUSE MOCK:
Earlier this week, in Columbia, South Carolina, Confederate-flag-waving Ku Klux Klan white wingers paraded downtown. The paramilitary-garbed haters were joined by an uninvited sousaphone player who provided ironic musical accompaniment. (A sousaphone is the marching band variety of tuba that wraps around the player, making it easier to carry.) Enjoy the tubalicious music (is that Wagner?) AND the play-by-play commentary from a woman who may also be the videographer/uploader. “Stupid is as stupid does,” she notes. “This is a family tree with no branches.”
A citizen journalist with a smartphone can’t believe his eyes when he sees a parade of Confederate-flag-waving vehicles drive down a Dalton, Georgia thoroughfare. And then – wait for it – there’s that awkward moment when Instant Karma joins the fun. God do not like ugly. [NSFW, numerous F-bombs.]
At a 2000 concert, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young kill it with Young’s song Southern Man. Did the supergroup predict the future? Has Dixie learned from the past?
