Surely that same argument could be used to ban everything - ie - Notting Hill Carnival, St Georges Day, St Andrews Day, St Davids Day, Bastille Day, Independence Day (first film was great!), Diwali and so on......!

Surely we can't ban the MOBO awards, or black history month?

It's the white pride that's the issue here rather than the banning of national days?

And thank heavens for that, it was rubbish and yeah, we all ate it until we knew better. Your Dusty used to do a jingle for them, do you remember?

Two of my in laws are from India and Jamaica respectively and both take great delight in telling nonplussed new entrants to our somewhat huge family that they have "Oirish blood" in their veins particularly when they are both knocking back the booze and covered in shamrock - it is quite an amusing sight particularly as they both are usually plastered by the end of the evening and the imitation Irish accents aren't that bad.

Having just (unfortunately) read that Twitter feed, personally think the author needs to take a step back - (s)he is obviously unaware of Black Pride, or the fact that all countries, races, religions have a right to celebrate their (sometimes) perceived difference.

As you say it's ironic that a twitter feed/whatever, allegedly about awareness is so completely unaware.
