Manche Songs und Themen bleiben immer aktuell. Die, die selbst am meisten Dreck am Stecken haben, sind auch stets diejenigen, die am intolerantesten sind. Einer meiner absoluten Lieblingssongs ist „Home of the brave“ von Jody Miller, in dem jemand gegen das Gemobbe schon am Schulhof leidenschaftlich Position bezieht:


The school board says he can’t come to school no more
Unless he wears his hair, like he wore it before
The PTA and all of the mothers, say he ought-a look like the others

Home of the Brave, Land of the Free.
Why won’t they let him be what he wants to be?

The kids all laugh at his hair and his funny clothes.
And more than once he’s gone home with a bloody nose.
He’s not like them and they can’t ignore it. So they all hate him for it.

Home of the Brave, Land of the Free.
Why won’t they let him be what he wants to be?

It really burns me up when they put him down
He’s the only one saying something in this whole town
Instead of all the trouble they hand him
Why don’t they try to understand him?

Home of the Brave, Land of the Free.
Why won’t they let him be what he wants to be?

He never hurt nobody…
He’s just a little bit different….
Tell my why is that so wrong?

Wobei ich dann auch an diesen etwas bekannteren Klassiker denken muß, der nicht nur ebenfalls ein „P.T.A.“ erwähnt, sondern auch eine ähnliche Thematik hat – hier wehrt sich eine Mutter gegen Gemobbe:
