Or 1. It is as I suggested and you didnt feel it would be acceptable about posting about the death of a black activist on EDF so you chose other 'social media' that you thought would be more acceptable than white edf.
2, 3, 4, 5 or whatever, you dont have the courage of your convictions
6. White admin are wrong but as reflects unfair society have all the power

I think Zelig has a point here, if you look at the facts.
A predominantly white middle-class postcode with it's own forum ?
Posters not posting on a Sunday night ?
Including when a chap dies who happens to be black ?
Oooooh, well.... hmmmmmmm...
Clearly a front for the KKK and general propogation of anti-black sentiment.
Well spotted that man.

Before Zelig's post, four of the previous eight RIPs were for famous black people – but I guess that, as they worked in the entertainment industry, the EDF was merely reinforcing black stereotypes. Oh well, I'd better slink back into my white hole of guilt...

Can we remember what Darcus contended with, he suffered and was recovering from prostrate cancer, as we all sadly know he died un-expectantly last Saturday. I did not agree with a lot of what he said, but you have to respect the man and his memory. He had a fantastic gravely voice.

Ingrid, who masterminded the ED street art has left us. She was a very nice lady, energetic and smart.

The murals are a lasting legacy.

Beautiful anecdote doing the rounds today: a chap was about seven when he saw RM sitting in the departure lounge at Nice airport. He asked his grandfather, who had no idea who RM was, to go and get his autograph, so grandad went over, said "My grandson says you're famous and he wants your autograph please." Charm itself, RM asked for the boy's name and signed his ticket with a nice personal message. When he saw what he'd written, the boy complained to his grandad that it was wrong - "He's not Roger Moore, he's James Bond!" Grandad went back over and explained this to RM, who told him to bring the boy over. He leaned forward, looked both ways, raised an eyebrow and said, "You're right, I am James Bond, but I have to sign 'Roger Moore' in case Bloefeld finds out I'm here. Don't tell anyone, will you?"

Twenty years later the same chap was working for UNICEF in Switzerland and RM came in to do a piece for camera in his role as an ambassador. Chap told him about the incident, RM chuckled and said, "Well, I don't remember that but I'm glad you got to meet James Bond!"

As RM was leaving he passed the chap in the corridor, stopped, leaned forward, looked both ways, raised an eyebrow and said, "Of course I remembered meeting you in Nice, but I couldn't say anything in there - any one of those cameramen could be working for Bloefeld!"

Lovely, I thought that.

On that note there is a great episode of the Saint, when RM gets an old lady to help him out, by pretending to be James Bond (did he not originally audition at the same time as Sean Connery, not to get the job first time? Ot have I made that up). In the hot summer of 76 I visited London and had a treat from my Auntie do see one of my favourite Bond movies (well at least at the time) The Spy Who Loved Me.
