GUEST,donald Folklore: Padstow 'Darkie Days' (141* d) RE: Folklore: Padstow 'Darkie Days' 19 Jan 07


"I suggest you take it up with the black musicians themselves. As far as I'm concerned, they are entitled to refer to themselves in any way they damn well like without regard to pseudo-PC middle-class, middle-England white bleeding heart bollocks. It's their music, their culture and their right to describe it how they like. "

Quite right, Countess.

It irks me to have these misguided PC pricks constantly dictate what is offensive and what is not. I'm also with the sentiments expressed by The Villan and Fairy Princess above. By the way, I lived in South Africa for 16 years and enjoyed the annual Coon Carnival in Cape Town each year (with my mates of *all* backgrounds): I know them well enough to knaow they'd find the views expressed by the whinging PC's above simply laughable. As Countess says, "they are entitled to refer to themselves in any way they damn well like ".

Oh, and what have you to say about the fine chaps from Nelspruit (SA) who are proud to play good football under the name 'Dangerous Darkies'? again - "they are entitled to refer to themselves in any way they damn well like ".

Totsiens
