TFW you just now learn that "Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen" is an African-American spiritual song that originated during slavery.
There are several films that feature a white actor singing this from a jail cell or some other form of captivity.
@Jo 'When The Saints Go Marching In' is a slave song about how the end of the world would be better than this shit.
@Jo camptown races is an oppressor song about how black people can't talk 'properly' and lose all of their wages at the race track.
@Stephen_Stone And Police Academy 4.
And The Lion King (the animated one - Rowan Atkinson as Zazu sings it)
@Jo yeahhhh that's one Hollywood loves to appropriate in the worst ways. 😑
