Subject: RE: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
ollaimh, have you ever stopped to consider that it might be racist to constantly accuse "anglos" of being racist?

I've been associated with the British folk movement for over 40 years now and I can't think of a single example of anyone expressing anti-"gael"ic sentiments. I used to know a bloke once who seemed to desperately want to be Irish - because he very much admired certain Irish singers and musicians - but I don't think that he had any "anglo" "imperialistic" urges!
