Getting ahead of the news before someone brings it back up now that video will soon be released

Eric Clapton Apologizes for Racist Past: ‘I Sabotaged Everything

https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.thedai ... everything

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rock_Against_Racism

Quote:
Eric Clapton made a drunken declaration of support for former Conservative minister Enoch Powell (known for his anti-immigration Rivers of Blood speech) at a concert in Birmingham.[2] Clapton told the crowd that England had "become overcrowded" and that they should vote for Powell to stop Britain from becoming "a black colony". He also told the audience that Britain should "get the foreigners out, get the wogs out, get the coons out", and then he repeatedly shouted the National Front slogan "Keep Britain White".

A documentary is coming out with actual footage. I don't think the footage has been public before.

That's why he's is being proactive and apologizing

Is it really being proactive if it's from 40 years ago?

I think so. The incident in question is from 1976.

Yeah. But I don't think he ever did. I can't find an apology prior to this.

I did find this

https://dangerousminds.net/comments/eri ... ist_tirade

Quote:
How Clapton didn’t get crucified at the time in the popular press is beyond me, as is the fact that the rest of the concert continued as normal, with no rioting or no bottling. The activist group Rock Against Racism was set up as a direct response to these remarks. Clapton has never properly apologised - how does he still get away with receiving so much praise and acclaim? Fuck Eric Clapton.

Brotherjk is it possible you are getting Clapton confused with Tom Petty?

http://thequietus.com/articles/20701-er ... -morrissey

Quote:
"I used to be into dope, now I'm into racism," he slurred. "It's much heavier, man. Fucking wogs, man. Fucking Saudis taking over London. Bastard wogs. Britain is becoming overcrowded and Enoch will stop it and send them all back. The black wogs and coons and Arabs and fucking Jamaicans don't belong here, we don't want them here. This is England, this is a white country, we don't want any black wogs and coons living here… Enoch for Prime Minister! Throw the wogs out! Keep Britain white!"

He later attempted to pass the rant off as a "joke", yet never apologised for it, repeatedly, soberly extolling the virtues of Enoch Powell.

Is it possible for a "blues guitarist" to not rip off black people?

It took him 40 years to apologize. The only reason he is apologizing now, is people will now be able to watch the video and shit like this can ruin your career now.

He's obviously racist. Always has been. He doesn't apologize until 40 years later because the environment we live in today this is a career killer.

If it was just because he was messed up then he would have not waited 40 years to do it.

This should ruin whatever career he has left. It probably will not but it should. He should disappear to a Mansion and never be heard from again
