Evidence of racism[edit]

This video on Youtube highlights the racism inherent in the "Darkie Day" traditions, inculding a song with the words; "He's gone where the good n*gg*rs go", is there a place for a link to it?

I feel it might also be interesting to mention/add a link to Wren's Day which is celebrated in Many parts of Ireland (chiefly Dingle, Co. Kerry) on December 26 and which in all likelihood shares the same origins as Mummer's Day. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.173.233.137 (talk) 10:10, 12 August 2012 (UTC)
