Flight NAACP 105

This was just posted on YouTube a few days ago. I remember it from my days at Camp Lejeune in '65-'66. It was on the jukebox in a saloon in Swansboro NC. The bars in Onslow County were closed on Sunday so we went up there to drink beer. Your basic asshole racist white Marines would play this if a splib* Marine came in. Maybe they thought it was a good joke. It wasn't. I have told people about this record and they didn't believe me. I think it is of some historical interest. Times have changed, thank God.

Rebel Records is still going as a Bluegrass and Americana label but I don't think this is in their catalog any more. I sure hope not.

Thanks, I guess, to TheErrol1975, Sweden.

*From the Urban Dictionary:

In the mid 60's, while in the Marine Corps, the term splib was used commonly among black and white marines. It was not used in a pejorative way by either blacks or whites but as a "hip", descriptive way of identifying a person, usually a male, of the negro race, such as in the phrase "splib dude". Likewise the descriptive and non-pejorative term "chuck" was used to describe a white person, however it was also used to describe the Viet Cong (VC), such as in "Victor Charlie", "Charlie" or just "Chuck" In fact, one might get vanilla or chocolate creme filled cookies that were included in the field "C" rations. These were commonly referred to as "chuck" or "splib" cookies.
The important thing about the word "splib" was that no offense was intended and none was taken. It was a good word. "Negro" was too formal, "nigger" was out of the question in mixed company, and "black" and "African-American" were not in use yet. I have no idea what the origin of "splib" is, but I've heard that it's an acronym. If you know, please tell me.

"Chuck" bothered no one either.

Maybe I can find the other Rebel record I remember from that jukjebox - "Cajun Ku Klux Klan". In the rest of the United States, folks have a hard time believing such shit actually existed. Trust me, it did. Still does too, if you know where to look for it. There are still a lot of racist assholes.
