(TheFreedomFlag.com)- Ever since formally leaving the British Royal Family to pursue far-left Meghan’s (struggling) Hollywood career, once-prince Harry has become just as left-wing as his wife. The former prince has backed calls to ban the legendary “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot” song from being sung at English rugby games.
Harry came out in support of banning the song after the suggestion was made in British media, and his connection to the sport as a patron of the British Rugby Football Union makes it even more controversial. Harry backs the idea that the historic context of the song means it is racist and offensive and should not be sung by fans at games…as it has been done for decades.
The Rugby Football Union even came out in opposition to the song, suggesting it would be reviewed (and likely banned).
If you’re not already familiar with the song, it’s not British. It was written by Wallace Willis, a slave from Oklahoma who was freed in the late 1800s. The song has long been played in gospel churches all around the world and, until the world went mad with the far-left Black Lives Matter movement, it was never considered even remotely racist.
The song was adopted by British rugby fans back in 1988 when England beat the Irish team. Ever since, the song has been sung at all national games. The song has even been covered by big stars like Ella Eyre, UB40, and others.
A spokesperson representing the former royal told the Times newspaper that he is “supportive of the comments that the RFU made this week regarding the review” of the song.
The RFU released a statement saying they would review the song.
“The Swing Low, Sweet Chariot song has long been part of the culture of rugby and is sung by many who have no awareness of its origins or its sensitivities,” a representative said. “We are reviewing its historical context and our role in educating fans to make informed decisions.”
Incredibly, this happened a few years ago, albeit without the support of Harry. The New York Times reported how a black studies professor argued the song was a “cross-cultural appropriation.”
