Thread Name: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
Subject: RE: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
I've just read the comment from 'Guestscratch' that one of the reasons why MacColl didn't like Dylan was because he (Dylan) was Jewish! Now that really is a low and loathsome blow!

I didn't know MacColl well but he was an important figure, among many of my peers and I, when I was a teenager and a young adult. I can assure you that there was never a hint of any racism in that milieu - in fact anti-racism was a powerful theme. There was certainly never a hint of anti-semitism, and any such prejudice would have been regarded with horror!
