The White & Black Minstrels?

Do you remember the "Black & White Minstrels"? A bunch of white guys who used to black-up their faces and do supposedly black song & dance routines. They went out of fashion when political correctness decided that they were potentially a racist slur of some sort. Maybe it was also the time when that type of show just went the way of Val Doonican.

Well, just back from South Africa where we were entertained by "The Cape Minstrels" - a bunch of black kids who whiten their faces. I hadn't the heart to tell them.
