Power Salad Hi, I'm a Racist! 
featuring The Jones Jukebox
As many of you know, the specter of racism has reared its ugly head against 2 FuMPers in recent months...Thing is, both recipients of the racism were WHITE GUYS! Not to turn this into Social Studies 101, but some people need to, um, Chill the F*** Out it seems! So here's a song offered in thanks to the person who opened my eyes to the idea that, despite anything I say or do otherwise or how I live my life, the fact that I am white automatically makes me a disparaging, privileged oppressor. Guilty as charged I guess, though I've never thought or acted in that way, but I guess others know better than me! Sometimes you just can't win. Chris Mezzolesta - guitars, bass, vocals, loops. Craig Marks - just watching this time.

This song is now available on the following CDs:

Well, this is going to make the FUMPCast extra entertaining next week. Trenchant social analysis from you, Devo and Luke.

Friday morning laughs! Could not wait to share it. Very nice commentary on some recent events.

Will the same people who have unfairly used that term in recent events use it to describe this song? Who cares? Well done.

Could someone fill me in on what happened? I'm not around here much. I really hope the two FuMPers & everything's OK now. Some assume I'm a racist simply because lots in my area are; I need to move.

I'd love to hear the story. You can fill me in, if you wish, by clicking the Musical Depreciation Society banner ad above and going to the contact us page. I subscribe to the Mel Brooks theory of comedy - try to offend everyone equally

So like, nobody got the musical reference at the very beginning of the tune? First correct answer gets a crack across the back. :-/
