A VDARE article on the late Merle Haggard mentions his 1977 song “White Boy”:
Yeah, I don’t want no handout livin;’
And don’t want a part of anything they’re givin;’
I’m proud and white
And I’ve got a song to sing…
I wasn’t born and raised in no ghetto,
Just a white boy lookin’ for a place to do my thang.
