The Ultimate Sin
Hall Of Famer
When Rangers went bust and re-started, it was a great chance to get rid of all that...
The most notable song for fans of England's rugby union national side is "Swing Low Sweet Chariot". Originally in honour of the black winger Martin "Chariots" Offiah, but it's been retained since. The RFU is now suggesting that it's cultural appropriation to use a slave spiritual as a supporting song. Which is beyond mental, but never underestimate how stupid sporting bodies are.
Little drives me crazier than the whole cultural appropriation thing. Culture is culture. It's all out there for everyone to take part in and to adopt and adapt to their own use and style. No one owns culture. It isn't proprietary. If a particular group, whether religious, racial, ethnic, tribal, regional, language or whatever in nature, comes up with a song or style of music, hairstyle, clothing style, cooking style, style of dance, type of craftsmanship, type of musical instrument or tool and so on, anyone else can use it. This madness isn't going away soon, unfortunately, but I wish it would.
Dude, relax, no one at S&W is pissed because you have dread locks.
May I offer you some salt and vinegar chips?
