First of all racism is racism - no such thing as 'reverse'.

Secondly, i was there for the opening night and don't recall hearing anything. What has he said?

During play that funky music white boy he repeatedly took the piss outta the unfortunate caucasion dude on stage, then during black sweat he kept referring to some white lady in the crowd (which wasn't relevant to the lyrics in the song) and then he made a comment during kiss..'everybody dance like U got black in U' and then when he did take me with U he said 'never let it be said, white folks aint got no soul' which was patronising and when the white girls got on stage dancing in the beginning he kept laughing at their lack of rhythm but really danced with the black girl (not the one in white who was a band member the other one from the audience)....there'sa few other things he said and did but some of y'all wouldn't have got the 'inside joke'

I get where you're coming from but it's not racism - it may be a bit non 'PC' in todays bonkers Britain, but if he's said/done as you have suggested it does not constitute racism.

You appear to be getting to the point that if his comments were somehow 'reversed' then all hell would break lose and the Commission for Racial Equality would jump in and get involved and such like. Which may (or may not) happen.

But if it did i for one would still think its a bit PC gone mad - and not racism.

...but then that's this great country of ours!

He's just having a laugh. I can't say I heard anything which I'd take issue with. Maybe you'd hear "Dance like you got white in you" at an Andy Williams concert.

I'm with you. Its all a bit non PC and no one should bat an eyelid.

However, I do think if the roles were reversed there would be plenty of accusations of racism.

But I think we need to save these for the politics thread! biggrin

I would be very surprised if Prince meant anything by it but he certainly does take the piss out of white people for (supposedly) having no rythmn (whoch is complete crap thank you).

If Prince was a white artist taking the piss out of black people there would be shouts of racism though!

Without doubt we live in a society of double standards.

It's strange because this is the guy who broke down racial and gender barriers with his band and audience. Think of the video for TMBGITW where he celebrates women of all colour and size.

I love Prince massive but he is sometimes a bit ill-judged (TRC's "family name" almost anti-semitic lyrics for example). Perhaps it would be better if he balanced his micky taking with a few people of a darker complexion!?!
'I loved him then, I love him now and will love him eternally. He's with our son now.' Mayte 21st April 2016 = the saddest quote I have ever read! RIP Prince and thanks for everything.

2 be honest..I just think the O2 concerts are directed at the black ppl in the audience...the choice of old RnB, funk and Jazz that takes up about 70% of the show along with the constant dissing of 'whitey' really sticks 2 fingers up 2 the white crowd. A black couple in front of me were makin' some really bad comments about the white ppl dancing on stage so loud that some Australian accented guy shouted at them 2 shut the fuck up..

The whole reason I liked Prince in the beginning was cos he use to speak of 'I wish there was no black n white, i wish we all were nude' and 'white, black Puerto Rican..everybody just a freakin'

When did that become 'dancin like a white girl' & 'U'll be screamin like a white lady' neutral

There is no constant dissin of whitey in the show!

Granted Prince has made some odd remarks about race over the last ten years, but I put that down to ignorance more than intelligent thought. (eg Blackburn).

Prince, like basketball, and football players, should love white people. Its only 95% whites that buy tickets and CD's.

JUST FOR THE RECORD - WAS JOKING THEN - THIS IS RIDICULOUS.
Prince was only being silly - he is (my opinion) probably the least racist person around - if you look to his 'friends' they are the most diverse bunch of people you could ever meet!! Please remember our Princey has a 'wicked' sense of humour....

You obviously know nothing about music history. We (Black people) were masters of the guitar too.
