Hopping negro dances

“The other day i went to a book store in Basel, and found the latest assortment of books that was to be printed: a negro novel, just like negroes slowly migrate into the civilisation of europe in general.

Everywhere you find this enacting of negro dances, hopping of negro dances.

But we already have this negro novel. It´s extremly boring, ghastly boring, but people devour it.” (Rudolf Steiner)
