GUEST,Peter Laban Calling time on Blackface Morris (247* d) RE: Calling time on Blackface Morris 05 Jul 20


I can't help noting the arguments used here in defense of blackface are eerily similar to the ones used in defence of the 'Zwarte Piet' (Black Pete) figure in the Netherlands. A tradition that for all its denial has a clear and obvious racist element.

Over there the defence has become entrenched, 'our culture' and all that. There's no reason why these traditions shouldn't adapt and change with the times, no excuse for rabidly clinging to it.
