  • Gwlad y Gân (English: Land of Song) was a monthly television series that was broadcast on the United Kingdom television network ITV from 1958 to 1964. Featuring traditional Welsh music and song, with costumed performers and choreography, the programme went out on early Sunday evenings.

    The series, starring Welsh baritone Ivor Emmanuel and supporting cast, expressed a set of ‘feel-good’ values that were wholesome, folksy, rustic, fun-loving and family-oriented.


    When Land of Song began in 1958, its only direct rival in providing musical variety on TV was the BBC’s The Black and White Minstrel Show. The Mitchell Minstrels had gained instant popularity from their first appearance in a one-off special in 1957, going on to become perennial favourites well into the 1970s.

    Wait, it’s only rival was what?

    The Black and White Minstrel Show was a popular British light entertainment show that ran for twenty years on BBC prime-time television.

    Twenty years?

    In 1967 the Campaign Against Racial Discrimination presented a petition to the BBC calling for the show to be cancelled. In 1968, the BBC experimented with a version of the show called Masquerade, where the main singers appeared without blackface and the black singers wore whiteface.

    What the fuck?

    The BBC1 TV show was cancelled in 1978 as part of a reduction in variety programming (by this point the blackface element had been reduced)


    Since its cancellation in 1978, The Black and White Minstrel Show has come to be seen widely as an embarrassment

  • My family: We’re not racist!
    Also my family: Support a racist tradition of people doing blackface every year as part of Sinterklaas celebrations and defend it because ‘it’s culture’

    #ooc#Feegle's rambles#Negativity cw#racism cw#blackface cw #If you think the Netherlands is a progressive country then THINK AGAIN KIDS STILL GOT BLACKFACE THERE #Seriously Zwarte Piet / Black Pete is still going on and still considered okay and like...it's so normalised even my mum's sharing blackface #on my gd facebook timeline because 'how far can you go'. Dutch critics of the tradition get so much abuse and lies spread about them #but sure have a hissy fit because you Facebook and Insta won't allow your blackface photos any more

  • Tbh there is a shocking number of white people on this site who pretend to be PoC. I’ve even seen some attempts at black/brownface, and it’s just SO reflective of the shit show that is post-structural, identity-based tumblr culture.
