Abstract

Around the figure of the ‘brown skin gal’ — the Caribbean woman of mixed race — float many associations, some flattering, some detrimental. Several of them are implicit in the innocent words of a popular song of the 1950s:

Brown skin gal, stay home and mind baby …

I’m going away in a sailing boat

And if I don’t come back

Stay home and mind baby.
