Inspired by the song “Stange Fruit”

A song about the hatred and racism of the “white” or fair skin people (most especially in the southern USA) toward people of “black” or dark skin.

If Music be the “food” of love, then this song is giving instruction about what a strange “food” (fruit) this is as a serving on the platter of life.
