Vor ’nem halben Jahr hat man alte Lyrics vom alten Social Justice Warrior und Fascist-Killing-Machine-Spieler Woodie Guthrie gefunden. Der hatte damals in einem von Drumpf-Daddys Gebäudekomplex gewohnt und hatte zu spät festgestellt, dass Drumpfs Papa hier Rassentrennung praktizierte:

What Guthrie discovered all too late was Trump’s enthusiastic embrace of the FHA’s guidelines for avoiding “inharmonious uses of housing” – or as Trump biographer Gwenda Blair puts it, “a code phrase for selling homes in white areas to blacks.” As Blair points out, such “restrictive covenants” were common among FHA projects – a betrayal, if ever there was one, of the New Deal vision that had given birth to the agency. Only a year into his Beach Haven residency, Guthrie – himself a veteran – was already lamenting the bigotry that pervaded his new, lily-white neighborhood, which he’d taken to calling “Bitch Havens.”

In his notebooks, he conjured up a scenario of smashing the color line to transform the Trump complex into a diverse cornucopia, with “a face of every bright color laffing and joshing in these old darkly weeperish empty shadowed windows.”

Woodie Guthrie schrieb daraufhin die Lyrics zum Song „Old Man Trump“:

I suppose
Old Man Trump knows
Just how much
Racial Hate
he stirred up
In the bloodpot of human hearts
When he drawed
That color line
Here at his
Eighteen hundred family project…

Und diesen Song gibt's jetzt als Cover von Ryan Harvey, Ani DiFranco und Tom Morello als Charity-Single, der Erlös geht an Flüchtlinge und Low Income Housing-Kram. Hier auf iTunes, Story beim Rolling Stone.

Woody Guthrie wrote lyrics 66 years ago about his racist landlord, Fred Trump that were recently rediscovered. Ryan Harvey teamed up with Ani DiFranco and Tom Morello to record a version of these “lost” lyrics - and with the blessing of Woody Guthrie Publications - "Old Man Trump" was born. Proceeds from the track will go to CK Team Relief, a coalition of independent volunteers directly working with refugees, and the Baltimore Right to Housing Alliance, a human rights organization led by low-income residents working to elevate housing to the level of a human right.
