Song of the South

Was a bit varied, as it was mixed from different prints. Some parts are red, others acceptable. Still the colour on my Super 8 digest of Brer Rabbit and the Tar Baby was better

I bet the PC censors would have a field day on this one, wasn't the expression 'Uncle Tom' used by Black Actors for Black actors who sold out to these types of roles in films, I'm sure I have heard it on one of the Hollywood docs.

Its time that Black or coloured actors, (which is PC? I lose track & patience) got rid of the chip on their collective shoulders, when they
harp on about slavery, they want to think of Gt. Britain, we were enslaved by the Romans, then the French, then raided by Vikings and
Moors. How do they think our people felt. The Royal Navy's ships were filled with slaves, men that were press ganged into service and stolen from their families. So I think the folk that take offence at any slight, like Vidar's innocent pictures, I would say read your history.

I am sorry we raided you :-) You got such a nice country, was a good vacation spot ;-)

But what annoys me, why can't we call them black when it is okay for them to call us white? It's the colour, don't be ashamed of it, no matter what it is. Not something you choose yourself, just do your best as a person, colour is just a colour. I love my Thai wife, shouldn't I because of colour? Stupidity galore.

Learn from history, don't hide it.

I remember in the 60's there was a chain 'Aunt Jemima's Kitchen' and their logo was a big picture of a big black woman red and white spotted head scarf and a beaming smile, as a child I was always disappointed when we went in there, where was 'Aunt Jemima', in fact there was not a black face to be seen. The innocents of a child's mind, but as you get older you realize we are sold lies from the cradle to the grave.

A lot of people probably don't read history after their schooldays are behind them. After the Norman Conquest the native aristocracy had their land stolen from them and forced to work as slaves. This went on for almost 400 years. It wasn't a short term thing. There was the Peasant's Revolt about 1380; at that time, a man was not allowed to fish in the river to feed his family; and prior to that, there were the Forest Laws, where you couldn't go into the woods to collect firewood; something which you had been able to do since the days of Alfred. The last rebellion in this country was about 1410.
