This man touches my entire soul. I loved him before I watched these videos. I love his music and his lyrics. However, after watching these videos, whether he is wasted or not, I have a much deeper respect too for him now. I was not aware that the song Word Game was inspired by the problems that were occurring in South Africa in 1972. I wasn't even aware of the racial injustices that were happening there then. I was just a young 16 year old girl, who was extremely naive. I grew up from age 4 to 8 in Europe, and when I returned to the United States in 1962, I spoke to the black children, who rode my school bus, unaware of the fact that the state that I resided in had just desegregated their public school system that year. Yes, I too, got called a nigger lover. What an awesome story, Stephen told of growing up in the South with racism and prejudice. I love you, Stephen!
