GUEST,padgett blacked up morris dancers abused in uk (323* d) RE: blacked up morris dancers abused in uk 10 Jan 17


Surely the tradition of blacking up was to do with being in disguise ~

from which the word geezer comes ~ whilst cadging drinks and money from

all and sundry and flirting with the ladies ~ if people are offended

they are lacking in knowledge of the tradition ~ not the same as black

and white minstrels by a good bit

The crowds apart from the pc brigade represented by the offended woman

(god 'elp us with pc people!) would probably be usual sort of football "fans" out for a Sunday drink ~ owt for a laugh" against this "dancers"
