    Why is this the worst name? Just because it has Black in the name? Why does everything with ‘black’ in the name become racist? Get over it, whatever.

    @ No Name - I'm with you. If it's good enough for the Black & White Minstrels, it's good enough for me. Damn right!
  • Chris
    What's wrong with the name?
  • Jonno
    It is aimed at people of an Afro heritage

    Hansen got crucified for not using the word black last week. Surely this would be more offensive it it was Coloured Up?? I just cant keep up with the PC rulebook!
  • Diane A.
    Is it because up is shortist? Or mocking those with erectile dysfunction?
  • Bernard M.
    It's not because the word black is in the name, it's because "black up" is a phrase that is connected with the art of "blacking up", a popular entertainment feature throughout the earlier parts of the 20th century. You uneducated mongoloids. Try looking up "The Black and White Minstral Show" and you'll see what I mean.
