Thread Name: Why is 'Dixie' considered racist?
Subject: RE: Why is 'Dixie' considered racist?
Racism is not just black on white or vice versa, think of all those nice[?] polack jokes that used to go around. I agree that Athenry is more sectarian than racist, but it is perceived by many supporters of Glasgow Rangers football team to be an Irish Catholic song, and thus is ipso facto racist. It has been adopted by the supporters of Glagow Celtic and is sung on the terraces at each and every Old Firm match.
