Yet also there encumbered sleepers groaned, Too fast in thought or death to be bestirred. Then ,as I probed them, one sprang up, and stared With piteous recognition in fixed eyes, Lifting distressful hands, as if to bless. And by his smile, I knew that sullen hall, - By his dead smile I knew we stood in Hell. With a thousand pains that visions face was grained; Yet no blood reached there from the upper ground, And no guns thumped, or down the flues made moan. Strange friend, I said, here...

Like the other genres/sub-genres, science fiction tries to reflect real life, in its own way. Nonetheless, science fiction does not just depict a distant reality; it could very much be a good instrument of satirizing the society.

Lynching of Blacks primarily took place in the south, and this is what the song was about, as it is indicated by the lyrics "Southern trees bear a strange fruit."
