Lena Horne

Monday, May 10th, 2010

Lena Horne was a talented singer and actress who would have benefited more if she were born 60 years later. She was black; growing up kids teased her (as I’ve been incorrectly teased) for having a “white daddy”. Racism ain’t just a thing for white folks.

Oh, and she was a babe:

Well that would be Ladysmith Black Mambazo. I have to confess… I grew up as a child in the 70’s and early 80’s listening to them. And then they struck it big in 1985 with Paul Simon’s Graceland and all the latte liberals listened.

But I liked them before and after.
