NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT [Episode #336 ~ 01-07-23]

Ultimately, minstrelsy was an institution with an ideology, and that ideology was not a benign one. But it was also a human institution; an American institution; worst of all, a showbiz institution. As an American human with showbiz experience, I feel entitled to a little skepticism about just what the average minstrel’s degree of interest was in the ideological aspects of his trade. For many, I’m sure it was just a good wheeze, a throwaway joke told by people who didn’t know, think, or care nearly so much about whom they told it on as about the laughs they were getting. It was entertainment. It was rock ‘n’ roll. And, if minstrelsy was anything like any of the crazes that followed it—like ragtime, like jazz, like swing, like rock and soul and hip-hop—some of those blacked-up ofays must have felt a sincere and unfeigned admiration for the black musicians they were imitating. Some of them must have internalized the music, understood it, played it with sympathy, skill, and creativity. Minstrelsy must have had its Joe Lambs and Jack Teagardens, its Elvises and its Eminems.
