They themselves chose to remove it and not perform the song. What seems to be the issue?

Vagina Point
Gold Coast slave ship bound for cotton fields
Sold in the market down in New Orleans
Skydog slaver knows he's doin' all right
Hear him whip the women just around midnight


I never knew this was the words.

Most humans have a legacy of trauma in their past.

It's hard to be human.

Yeah I'm pretty sure it's not a song that celebrated slave trading. There's a lot open to interpretation.

But they were also very clear about their love for heroin in other songs.

The Steel Wheels tour stop in Frantic City was well worth the mega-bux
this poor boy spent.

Keith seems over it

“I don’t know. I’m trying to figure out with the sisters quite where the beef is. Didn’t they understand this was a song about the horrors of slavery? But they’re trying to bury it.”

He goes on to say they might put it back in

It’s funny, if you tune your guitar to open G you start playing Stones songs accidentally. You might stumble onto a Black Crowes or CCR song as well
that’s one of my favorite things about it. one of my bands from the early-mid 00s used a lot of open G, we played dirty blues-rock-garage style, it was a fun band.
