In the early 80's the outlaw country singer David Allan Coe released very small quantities of two underground albums of songs that are among the most racist, misogynist, homophobic and obscene songs recorded by a popular songwriter. Bootlegged by fans and college fraternity members for years, those songs have recently been stirring up new trouble on the Internet: they are being passed around as e-mail files accompanied by sexually explicit and racist animation and they are being posted as computer files on Web sites like www. All of this comes as Mr. Coe is being exposed to a new audience, thanks to the Detroit rap-metal star Kid Rock, who invited Mr. Coe to be an opening act on his current tour, which ended Friday. The pair also recently recorded several songs together in a Detroit studio.

Mary R. Harmon , Marilyn J. Beyond Grammar: Language, Power, and the Classroom asks readers to think about the power of words, the power of language attitudes, and the power of language policies as they play out in communities, in educational institutions, and in their own lives as individuals, teachers, and participants in the larger community. Each chapter provides extended discussion of a set of critical language issues that directly affect students in classrooms: the political nature of language, the power of words, hate language and bullying, gender and language, dialects, and language policies. Developing a critical pedagogy about language instruction can help educators understand that classrooms can either maintain existing inequity or address and diminish inequity through critical language study.

She said someday I'd understand What love was all about She said I could have the kids She was movin out Said she'd finally found a man Who's dick was so much bigger Then that scumbag motherfucker Run off with a nigger. And to think I'd ate the pussy Where that big, black dick had been And kissed the lips that sucked him off Time and time again It's enough to make a man throw up Sure is hard to figure How any decent girl could ever fuck A greasy nigger. He treated her just like a queen She gave him all my money It looks like the joke's on me But I don't think it's funny That pussy ain't worth payin for As far as I can figure Cause there's nothing quite as worthless As a white girl with a nigger. And to think I'd ate the pussy Where that big, black dick had been And kissed the lips that sucked him off Time and time again It's enough to make a man throw up Sure is hard to figure How any decent girl could ever fuck A God damn nigger So for all you nigger lovin whores This song is just for you. I like sugar and I like tea but I don't like niggers, no sir-e there are two lone things that'll make me puke that's a hog eating slop and a big black spook.
A sk a hundred people to identify the music that most offends them, and you'll get a hundred different answers. Some of us are offended by an artist's politics, some by their singing voices, some by their lifestyle or wardrobe. Offence can be caused by accident, when an artist misjudges a mood, or makes too sudden a change of creative direction. Even blandess can offend those who believe art's job is to provoke, cajole or inspire.
