An apology from the grave would be something!

Larry also blacked up as Muhammad Ahmed aka 'The Mahdi' in the 1966 classic movie 'Khartoum'.

Indeed he did, completely forgot about all those 'arabian/religious' epics that were all the rage back in the 50'/60's(need willo for this).

Blazing saddles is a black guy playing... a black guy. It also uses words and phrases not allowed by whites but in rap songs by black guys and girls they're ok. Double standards ironically.
Does that count as racist?

I have a chimney sweep once a year for our fireplace.

The guy pished me off last year, so am thinking of reporting him for 'black-face'.

Also saw road workers doing re-surfacing last year. Black-faces for all to see.

Some Morris Men groups use blackface however this is part of our heritages and goes back centuries before Britain engaged in the slave trade. Still that doesn't seem to matter to the outraged on social media.

When I next have the opportunity to visit a location abroad which enjoys sultry climes and unbridled sunshine, I suspect I will have to ensure I don't return as 'Cuprinol man' and a living mahogany antique else I will be accused of "Blackface".

Try telling that to my ancestors in Ireland.

Bad stuff happens to everybody you have a choice sit in your own faeces wailing that life is unfair or dust yourself off and get on with it.

Apart from a very few elite the rest of us have to work to get on in life. We have a good educational system if people choose not to avail themselves of that it is their choice. Even if you didn't get on in school the opportunities are still there afterwards you may never be a CEO of a blue chip company but I have met plenty of people who made a good life for them and their families through hard work.
