Do not do " culture cancelling." Plan for the future!😂 ( thinking of Brown Sugar  by the Rolling Stones in today's news. STOP cancelling the past, idiots. ) The song is about the horrors of slavery.

I guess I missed where someone tried to cancel the Stones.

Self-cancelling due to the Zeitgeist. How can a song which was sung as an anti-slavery etc song  for 50 years suddenly become song non grata? ( Apart from making money, of course, the past 50 years..)

So, your response is that the artist made a decision.  That is not canceling. That's agency.

But why did he make that decision? What is the Zeitgeist pressure?

( There has to be a joke here somewhere.. this is the " laugh thread." )

It's the same when Reagan thought that Bruce Springsteen's Born in the USA was a great song. Clueless people with no real comprehension about what they're talking about jumping on the bandwagon. They in fact make themselves laughable.
