Older UK heads might recall ‘The Black & White Minstrel Show’. In the 50’s it was the norm for white performers to don blackface and ‘entertain the nation’ with their sambo-heavy intepretations of black performers. Word to your mammy. See below.
Of course as racial integration across the Western World began to occur, some plain old common sense and awareness that this just might just be a tad offensive must have kicked in with someone, and this show and others like it were rightfully pulled.
