Lizzie Miles with Jelly Roll Morton

I only just discovered this recording of singer Lizzie Miles, accompanied by Jelly Roll Morton. The song is "I Hate a Man Like You" - it must be masochistic of me to enjoy her accusations so much!

How would this 'text' be interpreted from more recent cultural perspectives? Its relevance today seems undoubtable, whatever we choose to make of it...
