“Every Race Has A Flag But The Coon” is the title of one of the very first “coon songs.” It represents contempt for Black people due to their lack of cohesiveness. That shortcoming was emphasized by the absence of a flag symbolically identifying all African people everywhere. We are approaching the 100th anniversary of the Red, Black … More Every Race Has A Flag But The Coon
