Jackie Wilson & LaVern Baker, ''Think Twice'' (X-rated version)

Who knew, back in the day, that such things even existed? Not me, that's for sure. Probably not a lot of white people.

There was a whole world out there that white people didn't have a clue about. It's not too hard to understand, really. White people lived in the Disney world, where everything was officially okay, all the time. Black folk, on the other hand, lived in the real world, the black world, where things routinely went to shit in a big fucking hurry.

So there was a lot of this kind of thing out there, not for general consumption. I hope that it's better by now for our black brothers and sisters, at least a little bit. One can only hope.
