Maintaining the N-Word in “I think” By Blessid Union of Souls

As a result of Spotify, my spouce and I had been speaking about our songs that are favorite our senior high school times. I’m about up to now myself (and hubby) but that’s ok. I’m turning 33 this and I’m totally cool with it saturday. It had been enjoyable finding out about tracks through the 1980s and 1990s on Spotify.

When track we mutually love is Blessid Union of Soul’s hit single “I Believe“ from their very first album house.“I Believe” informs the tale of lead singer Eliot Sloan’s previous relationship with “Lisa.” Lisa’s dad disapproved of the interracial relationship (Sloan is African-American) and finally the 2 split up. You’ll hear a lot more of the tale through the band’s meeting portion through the Regis and Kathy Lee Live. (be ready from some 90s locks!)

We hadn’t yet met once the song shot to popularity. Both of us knew in senior high school that individuals had been drawn to individuals of different events. That’s one of several good reasons it appealed in my experience. We knew that when We ever fell so in love with a man that is black my loved ones would disown me personally. We wasn’t being fully a dramatic teenager. We knew within my heart that even dating a man that is black create a rift within our family members. Wen reality I didn’t also inform my moms and dads I happened to be dating a black colored guy until I made the decision to marry him.
