Rock band The Rolling Stones are planning the much-listened hit brown sugar not to play in the near future. The song is about slavery and is said to be racist. Especially after the band played the song during a live performance in 2019, a wave of criticism arose. Many people demanded that the band stop performing the song.
“We’re trying to find out where this riot is coming from,” band member Keith Richards told the Los Angeles Times. Because according to Richards, the song is about the seriousness of this period. The British guitarist is tired of discussing the subject, so it was apparently decided not to play the song for the time being. Richard agreed, after the newspaper noticed.
Frontman Mick Jagger is less outspoken and says the band sometimes just takes songs off the set list. The band is currently busy with a tour of the United States, but the song from 1971 will probably not be heard. Richards and Jagger both hope that will change in the future.
