‘Racist golly’ costumes worn in town parade – Telegraph

Donna Plowman, who chairs the Wick Gala Committee, said: “Police approached us on Monday as they were making inquiries into certain participants after receiving concerns about people dressing up as Golliwogs and the Jackson Five.”On the night in question, none of the organisers saw these participants as we were busy elsewhere running the float parade.”We will have to discuss what has happened as a committee to see how we can go forward from this.”A picture shows three youngsters two boys and one girl all with black curly wigs, and black faces with white around their eyes. Theyre all wearing distinctive red, blue, white and black costumes.
