    Well I'm impressed for one thing that people outside Europe and Africa have come across Fela Kuti - however the human rights activist was his brother Beko Ransome-Kuti. If Fela had died in a Nigerian jail there wouldn't have been the street uproar that would have happened if Beko had been jailed and died. Come to that, their mother was the one who started off the human rights movement in Nigeria.

    Speaks volumes that the honouring of Fela Kuti is happening in France though and not across the pond in her home nation.

    Did you find the hollywood movie about two black guys made up as white girls racist? (can't remember it as I couldn't be bothered to watch it)

    It's worth reminding the Aussies which side their bread is buttered on. Like we have to remind them every so often who's the daddy at cricket.

    And someone is extremely jealous of her talent, riches and ability.

    This "black-face" thing dates back to a time when there was much more ignorance.
    Most people back then simply did not know any better - much like a young child.
    Today, there are still a few who are not "grown up", maybe there always will be some "adult children"..
    So, IMO, its not racist, its history, the way things were.

    Another one for the basement, this one is so silly and devoid of any value, other than the great pics, of course.
