Imagine all the coal miners after a days work, would they be considered racist too?

Like the GAA Confederate fleg debate, file under 'should have known better'.

Not personally 'outraged', but in this day and age, who thought that was a good idea?

I think a more pertinent question is who has decided this is not acceptable? It's just a few lads dressing up as some lads from a cult classic movie. People do it all the time.

Only a century or more of whites blacking up and imitating African Americans and all the baggage that comes with that.

So if there was a parade featuring, say, Irish Famine victims with spuds or lads in army surplus gear and balaclavas carrying fizzing novelty bombs would that still be a bit of fun? Or any of the 19th cent ape-like representations of Irish from 'Punch' magazine?

You see you're trying to compare apples and oranges here.

If the lads tried to portray the Cool Runnings lads as apes you'd have a point. But they weren't portraying them in any negative light. They were simply imitating a movie, of whose stars happened to be Jamaican.
