Subject: RE: Black Pipers Matter
the colour of skin in one sense can be important, just as the colour of the skins of people doing morris dancing is important because it is a sign of gradual integration of cultures, if there were more black brown and mixed race people doing morris dancing there would be less racism within it to overcome[imo] ,at one time the morris ring refused to allow womens morris sides into the ring, their attempts to Ban did not work.
its called integration, black brown or any colour could disguise and white people could disguise and unknowing bystanders would realise what it was bout....... disguise.
However it is correct that we do not mention white pipers as being white, but on the other hand people do on occasions mention irish pipers or scottish fiddler or english singer Martin Carthy,or irish singer jimmy crowley.where does it all end?
