    Default Remembering Ernest Hogan: Should he have his own Special Holiday?

    Ernest Hogan, 1865 -1909, was a traveling minstrel and popular Broadway entertainer who created the "ragtime" musical genre by writing the hit song of 1895, "All Coons Look Alike To Me".

    It was a smash hit that became so successful as to inspire many imitations that collectively became known as "coon songs" for their common negro themes and images.

    Spin-offs of popular music were not uncommon at that time. Hogan himself had "appropriated" his million seller hit tune from a Chicago musician's "All Pimps Look Alike To Me". By simply changing the title's subject and embellished the tune some, Hogan launched himself to fame.



    Despite his celebrity and considerable talent, Hogan died regretting the fact that the enormously popular music genres he himself helped create -- ragtime and coon -- had become a craze in American entertainment beyond his wildest imagination or intentions -- and not altogether in a positive sense insofar as a lot of negroes had come to hate his guts.

    Have you read the lyrics to "All Coons Look Alike To Me"? It's a love song about how all coons look alike to the woman 'cept for de wun man she loves.

    More deserving was Patti LuPone's ancestor who popularized a little song called...uh...Dixie?

    Perhaps both, then. Whites always take the hit for niggershines, don't they? Absolutely suicide.

    Since the breakup of Yugoslavia, I have greatly reduced the volume of what I read, but that's beside the point.

    Coon songs typically aren't hateful except in the reaction to them by niggers.

    If you plug the original word "pimp" back into the chorus of the song Hogan stole from the Chicago musician, it adds a much deeper dimension to the love story, which goes like this (the coon's lost love ho is replying to his amorous overture) ...:
    All pimps look a like to me,
    I've got another beau, you see,
    And he's just as good to me
    as you'll ever be,
    He spends his money free,
    I know we cant agree,
    So I don't like you no how,
    All pimps look alike to me ...
    How rich beez dem lyrics?
