Big Bill Broonzy - Black, Brown and White (1951)

Who said  that the blues was a music of submission? It's true that  most blues tell the misery affecting the singer without other forms of claims. But some  political themes are sometimes referred directly. This is the case of the "Black, Brown and White"'s Big Bill Broonzy. In the chorus, the blues man denounces discrimination against blacks :

 They says if you was white, should be all right

If you was brown, stick around
But as you's black, m-mm brother, git back git back git back
