LikeLike I will make an effort to find the version that reveals the yellow rose is of mix race. She represent the conflict of a civil war that happened to accomplish the free of people enslaved by color. I will look it up. LikeLike Thank you, this is interesting, indeed! LikeLike West was a mulatto, of mixed race ancestry. The song refers to her as the “yellow” rose, in keeping with the historical use of term “high yellow” as a description of light skin among people of color in the South. wickipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yellow_Rose_Of_Texas LikeLike Thank you!
