I grew up in what has long been a very liberal area of New York. Back in the fifties, they were Dems and "liberal Republicans" (yes, there once were such things: fiscally conservative, cautiously liberal on most social issues, tough but not apocalyptic on the Commies, strong on Civil Rights - which in those days often included the now sexist and forbidden word "brotherhood.")
Maybe that's why I cannot recall ever hearing a kids' rhyme of any kind with the "N" word or any other ethnic slur. Even today I read examples of proto-racist kidlore here and elsewhere with a feeling of what I can only describe as "weirdness." The racial allusions seem somehow obsessive, or something.
Must just be me. Carry on.
