Subject: RE: blacked up morris dancers abused in uk
Good point, pfr. It's not the most apocalyptic race issue ever to hit the planet. My personal feelings about blacking up are definitely on the mild side. I just find it very odd that some or all (who knows, he didn't really say...) of us whiteys can be accused of taking offence "on behalf of" black people. Doesn't chime with me at all and I feel that it didn't need to be said. Maybe it says something about the person who said it, or maybe not...
