    "HOW COME" is Jagger/Richards preferred line in addressing black women.

    * Rolling Stones, 1969 (in reference to black women on a slave ship bound for cotton fields): ÒBrown Sugar, how come you taste so good?Ó

    Gold coast slave ship bound for cotton fields,
    Sold in a market down in new orleans.
    Scarred old slaver know heÕs doinÕ alright.
    Hear him whip the women just around midnight.
    Ah brown sugar how come you taste so good
    (a-ha) brown sugar, just like a young girl should

    * Rolling Stones, 2005 (in reference to AmericaÕs first black female Secretary of State): ÒHow come youÕre so wrong, my sweet neo-con?Ó

    "You call yourself a Christian, I call you a hypocrite
    You call yourself a patriot.
    Well, I think your are full of sh*t!...
    How come you're so wrong, my sweet neo-con."
