I Ain’t Got No Home

Long before #45 darkened our lives.  Trump senior invaded the lives of many in New York.  Showing all the more that…the apple never falls far from the tree.

Woody Guthrie, an American icon, had his problems with the bigoted, money devouring, Trump senior, more than fifty years ago.

Mr. Guthrie died in 1967, and in the 1970s, the Justice Department sued the Trumps, accusing them of discriminating against blacks. (A settlement was eventually reached; at the time, Trump Management noted the agreement did not constitute an admission of guilt.)  Guthrie even reworked his song “I Ain’t Got No Home” into a critique of Fred 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

Beach Haven ain’t my home!
I just can’t pay this rent!
My money’s down the drain!
And my soul is badly bent!
Beach Haven looks like heaven
Where no black ones come to roam!
No, no, no! Old Man Trump!
Old Beach Haven ain’t my home!
