Another scalp for the woke brigade has been claimed this week.
The Silurian Border Morrismen dancers finally succumbed to the BLM woke agenda by dropping their 500 year tradition of painting their faces black during their St. Stephens Day tour.
The original reason for painting their faces black was to ensure they were disguised so they could beg for money without getting into trouble with the law.
But none of this matters in the new BLM woke world of BlackFace outrage.
Now the poor morrismen have had to change their 500 year tradition and paint their faces a dark green colour.
According to Sky News, the dance foreman, Ian Craigan said:
“There has been some controversy for a long time.”
“We need to be on the right side of things. We want to be a side that can turn up and dance and everyone feels comfortable watching and welcome new members from every spectrum.”
“It would be foolish to pretend everyone in the side is happy with the decision.
“But the main purpose is to dance and share the tradition which is unique to Silurian, which is more important than what we wear or how we decorate ourselves.”
There was one dissenting voice with dancer Chris Mulvey saying he would have preferred to stick with tradition, but had no issue adhering to the change.
The group said they had to be careful to choose the right shade of green as they did not want to look like “the Incredible Hulk”.
