Thread Name: blacked up morris dancers abused in uk
Subject: RE: blacked up morris dancers abused in uk
Hi Jeri - I've been well aware this thread is treading a delicate balance between 'folk' and BS..
but so far it seems to me mostly good humoured
and the 'politics' pertinent to seriously discussing the wider context & ramifications of the music/dance topic under discussion....

From my 30 odd years ago degree/post grad background in arts, media, and ideology,
it is a natural and inescapable binding of 'folk' ideas and 'politics' ideas..

In such a debate, not so easy to enforce strict demarcation lines... 🤔

And dare I say, I think most have us have been fairly tolerant and respectful throughout this thread...

It's certainly not fair to upset Senoufou by stifling her expression of deeply personal concerns on this subject... ????
