It's interesting and amusing that someone prejudged this collection before he even heard it. The title comes from a Folkways album, which documented black commentaries on both the jailing of Huey Newton, as well as the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King. Still, if anyone is offended by putting a "y" after the word "white," then they're well advised to steer clear of this, even though the "N-word" is used far more often than any insults such as "cracker."
What this album does is document a different time, when black people were first feeling the freedom to express their anger and pride. A time when radicals spelled "America" with three k's instead of a c, and police were regularily referred-to as "pigs" by the same.
The anger wasn't just expressed by black people alone, as songs by white performers are included, most notably the rare single "George Jackson," by Bob Dylan. I admit that this one song's inclusion is the reason why I purchased this, and the rest of the collection makes me glad that I did. Back to the point, however, perhaps the most audacious title is "I Hate The White Man," which is written and performed by a white Englishman, Roy Harper. (It's an anti-imperialist song.)
Fans of rap music will enjoy discovering some of it's roots in this collection. Fans of Ani DiFranco will enjoy the Marlena Shaw track, "Woman Of The Ghetto." Fans of the late great Gil Scott-Heron will marvel at the rendition of "Winter In America." And anyone interested in the radical politics of the late '60s/early '70s, especially as it relates to the black power movement, will enjoy this collection immensely.
