    No. Tradition is tradition, no matter what Skin. If you were to wear ancient Egyptian clothing, are you insulting the Egyptians? No.

    Why would the colour of a person's skin turn a tradition into a mockery?

    Of course very few people actually do wear traditional wigs in Parliament. MP's dress code is formal (men must wear jacket and tie). The clerks wear wigs, even the Speaker no longer wears a wig.

    Based on your previous questions you clearly don't want to believe that though. How about doing some reading for yourself.

    Those wigs look silly on everybody.  But it's not based on race.  Racists are annoying.

    Not at all.

    Only an ignorant racist would think like that.

    in today's outrage culture it would qualify yes.

    but thankfully not everyone is just looking for fight so it is a non issue (just like you can call black person black in most of the world except for one dumb nation in northern America). Context matters and everyone keeps forgetting that as they latch on to a word or an attire. People listen very little, think even less bu make up for that in overreacting.

    Baning words and certain attires for some groups is only empowering the hatemachine if you want things diffused than engage it head on, mock it you know like comedy used to. Taking power away from symbolism and mocking the very concept of ideology is helpful in taking its power away from it.

    who WOULD want to be known as nzi if their contemporary portrayal was that of ineffective bumbling organization ruled by vanity and greed? (as seen in 'allo 'allo, the producers, etc.)
