You ve got to be carefully taught
“You’ve Got To Be Carefully Taught”

  • Controversy

    • Producers

    • Politicians

      • "an underlying philosophy inspired by Moscow.”

      • "a song justifying interracial marriage was implicitly a threat to the American way of life.”


Michener s response
Michener’s response

"The authors replied stubbornly that this number represented why they had wanted to do this play, and that even if it meant the failure of the production, it was going to stay in."


You've got to be taughtTo hate and fear,You've got to be taughtFrom year to year,It's got to be drummedIn your dear little earYou've got to be carefully taught.You've got to be taught to be afraidOf people whose eyes are oddly made,And people whose skin is a diff'rent shade,You've got to be carefully taught.You've got to be taught before it's too late,Before you are six or seven or eight,To hate all the people your relatives hate,You've got to be carefully taught!
