What A Wonderful World [chill]

It is always a feat to watch Louis Armstrong perform. Back in the days they would have cut him off dry had he talked about racism. Instead of pointing fingers, he took the song "What A Wonderful World" that praises the rest - but not the way adults treat each other.

While the song - literally - can be seen as a praise to the world and has been misunderstood in such a way for a long time, in fact it is biting criticism of a massively racist USA back in the days - and there is no better dead give away than to study Satchmo's facial expressions while he delivers that song.

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
They're really saying I love you.

I hear babies cry, I watch them grow
They'll learn much more than I'll never know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world.

With all the rainbows and trees, skies and clouds, women have no equal wages, racist discrimination continues and folks with disabilities are no better off a bit. The thing is however, that in the around 40 year history of this song, people have not realized that practically all of the time and practically anywhere on this planet.

And precisely that is the reason why it is time to stop being subtle and offering clues, hints or polite comments. That is the reason why such people need to get it dished out the most explicit and heavy handed way ever possible. People that cannot take a hint will invariably require their news to be delivered in the way least possible to misunderstand. I do get the occasional reminder that my comments are a bit heavy handed. If they ever are you surely have overlooked a less heavy handed hint that was given earlier and that means you did miss out on an opportunity to keep the ball down.

If that wouldn't be the case, yeah, what a wonderful world that could be.
