TOPIC: Swing Low Sweet Chariot

Swing Low Sweet Chariot 2 Weeks, 1 Day ago  
Reasonable request from prince Harry.

Really over the attacks upon him and Meghan (I'm not that fond of her)..so much embedded racism with Harry daring to marry outside his circle. And not asking the UK media or Piers Morgan.

Why do people even sing this song at football? It's now a part of black slvaery in the South and that cannot be ignored.

I mean really, what do black footballers feel when they hear it?

Why not a song everyone can relate to like You'll Never Walk Alone"?.. applies to everyone !

## still learning so much real history now with these BLM demonstrations. Wonderful.

Why are people so frightened of hearing what really went on? Do they think they'll be blamed for it?

But surely it is an anti-slavery and oppression song? Wouldn't banning it just be yet another way of silencing black people?

yes it's a great song and I actually love spiritual and religious hymns.

But it's clearly now fixed in people's minds, I would have thought, with slavery.

Anyway Harry wants it changed and anything Harry wants I want ! (except Meghan )

My solution to all this calamity is for all statues (including Winston's and Maggie's) to have really great plaques and even thingies that talk and tell the full history warts & all. Get people talking and maybe looking up more history. What's not to like?

There is even one in Sydney outside the Queen Victoria Building ( a lovely luxury shopping building..probably now empty)

It's of a little (non racist) doggie Islay that belonged to Queen Victoria and as you approach the deep booming voice of a broadcaster named John Laws begins telling Islay's history and frightens the life out of tourists.
## haven't seen anyone attack Queen Victoria's statute yet.
