Eenie, Meenie, Miney, Mo: Racist Nursery Rhymes You Didn’t Know You Were Learning

Ten Little Indians

“One little, two little, three little Indians” are the lyrics we sing today. Back when mystery-novel maven Agatha Christe wrote “Ten Little Niggers,” they were the main characters.

The main characters were eventually changed from “niggers” to “injuns” — which, for some reason, seemed less racist to songwriters back then — and then eventually to “Indians” (which still isn’t great).
