That's what people see first. He loved that I was pale with black hair, and he often said that to me and I always complimented how beautiful his brown skin is, specially naked. 😉

The inspiration for "Brown Sugar" has been alternately assigned to one of two singers who have been affiliated with Jagger, Claudia Lennear and Marsha Hunt.

"When he wrote it, it didn't suggest to me he was the one, he was the slave owner. It wasn't his point of view," Lennear told NBC News on Wednesday. "I don't think he was celebrating slavery at all. If anything he was celebrating having a sexual encounter with somebody, you know, like, 'Woo, woo,' he scored."

And just as a music fan, Lennear, a member of the The Ikettes who backed up Ike and Tina Turner, said she's sorry to hear the song has been dropped even temporarily.

"I mean, that hook, 'Brown sugar, how come you taste so good now?' That's fun to hear. That's fun to dance to," Lennear said.

Huh. I mean, he's very clearly equating his "scoring" with a black woman to a slave owner whipping and raping a slave a century earlier.

The first verse says you should have heard the slave owner "just around midnight." The third verse has Jagger singing that you should have heard him "just around midnight." It can't be more obvious.

Today is when I realized that I never really noticed the lyrics of this song. I mean, I could have told you an approximation of the chorus with the word "dance" instead of "taste" and that's about it.

From Songfacts.com: "In Keith Richards' 2010 autobiography Life, it floats a theory as to what the lyrics "Scarred old slaver know he doin' alright" are all about. Some poor guy at their publishing company probably came up with that transcription for the lyrics, but Jagger was most likely singing "Skydog Slaver," as "Skydog" was a nickname for Muscle Shoals regular Duane Allman because he was high all the time".

Also: "This song gets a mention in the 2002 episode of The Wire, "A Man Must Have A Code." When a group of detectives are listening to a phone call they intercepted, one of them can figure out what's being said while the others are baffled. Asked how he can decipher the mumble, he speaks the opening lines of "Brown Sugar" ("Gold Coast slave ship bound for cotton fields, sold in a market down in New Orleans") and says, "I bet you've heard that song 500 times but you never knew, right? I used to put my head to the stereo speaker and play that record over and over.""

And that "lady of the house" referred to the madam of a brothel

I always thought the song was just a racy homage to how tasty and fun black women are, from the perspective of a rich white Englishman on the road. It seemed silly and antiquated to me, even in the 80s, but the groove is fantastic and it's a classic 70s vibe.

I'm certain that's all Mick really meant when writing it in the first place, but had to throw in some 'historical' garbage to the song to make it more 'racy', which of course is ultimately racist. *sigh*

But while we can maybe agree Mick was misguided in writing the song this way, it's clear at least to me that he wasn't advocating that we enslave black women again.

Up until sometime in the '80s, it wasn't cool to care what the lyrics to a song were (with a few political exceptions), you were just supposed to appreciate that a song rocked out and not be an egghead about it. In that climate, people wrote all sorts of sketchy shit that got massive airplay, like "Sweet Home Alabama" or "Island Girl" or "Cat Scratch Fever" or "I'm Turning Japanese."

Eventually the culture changed and people got tired of that kind of stuff. That happens. No one's playing covers of "My Dingaling" or booking Lucas to sing about his lid being off, either. That's just how it goes.

@ R100, I also had never picked up on the slave angle and was sort of embarrassed too given how often I'd listened to it.

But it always sounded like "Da-da-da-sold in a market down in New Orleans...something something something doing alright. Getting down with the women just about midnight" -- and so I also thought New Orleans, voodoo, hot black woman.

If it makes you feel any better, I've been asking friends if they knew what the song was about/lyrics were, and I'd say around two-thirds of them were also shocked that it was about slavery and had a similar sense of "something about a black woman in New Orleans" but never bothered to google the actual lyrics.

R75 Woke men of any color are even worse than woke women. They are such obnoxious pussies or should I say dicks. Because, ok for women, they are really target of misogyny in songs, not only songs from 70s, because rappers are even worse, for them they are bitches, so I understand they sometimes have enough of it.

But those woke men are too big pussies to even mention rappers, cause they are kissing their asses, but some song from 70s, oooh that is the big problem. While they praise Tyler who a few years ago still happily rapped about rape at the concert: I fucked a pregnant bitch...

You're so fucking stupid you're incoherent, and you're the one crying about the Stones being "cancelled."

Absolutely insane how fucking idiotic this place has become. Over 100 replies and there are, what, maybe 7 or 8 from real people?

Been listening and loving that song for decades. Frankly, I never paid attention to the lyrics - nor had any idea whatsoever what it was 'about'.

Brown Sugar is easily among the Rolling Stones 10 best songs. This is just stupid. Mind you I wouldn't see them live if they gave me free tickets. I had seen them several times in the mid 1970s and they were excellent. But I saw they later in 1981 and they sucked. I saw them again in 1989 because a friend begged me to go with him and they sucked again. Mick was constantly off key like a parody of himself and Keith kept fucking up his guitar licks. It was as if they didn't want to be there. They made The Replacement look professional by comparison. Charlie Watts was the only constant reliable musician (RIP).

A lot of their music has a dark, edgy side. What now...cancel all of their songs and the band itself? The Stones were always known as the "bad boys" with a dirty side. Early in their career, they were controversial and parents winced as the kids listened to them. Looks like the "parents" have returned as millennial wokesters.

They're not cancelled. Nothing has been cancelled.

I don't know why any of you choose to get upset over a lie you've told yourselves.

You Americans really love Prohibition, don't you. The first one ended badly.

Given how popular the song is/was, the epic arrangement and hook, seems like they could just change the lyrics. Remember back in the 60s and one of their first performances on the Ed Sullivan show they had to change their song "let's spend the night together" to "let's spend some TIME together", which Mick sang, sneering and rolling his eyes.

How about:

Gold coast cruise ship bound for happy fields

Always open bar there down in New Orleans

Scarred old alkie knows he's doing alright

Hear him beg the women just around midnight

R117, your mention of old alkie I take umbrage with. Offended!

They need to re-record this with Lizzo.

I didn't either r103. I always thought it was about a black prostitute, but never really thought about slavery.

The truth is "forced" is a silly way to put it. The Rolling Stones just decided it was time to retire this particular song. Though it is also funny to think that suddenly people care about racism and it's all so new and unclear. Kids, I don't want to shock you, but there was a little bit of talk about racism in the 1960s. Yes, people born before 1990 actually cared about race and racism. Strange but true.

Yeah. Not clear "who" if anyone "forced" this. I'm guessing this is Murdoch-related website.
