Reading The Commitments today. Roddy Doyle really has some great lines:
“-Yeah, Politics. —Not songs abou’ Fianna Fuckin’ Fail or annythin like tha. Real Politics (they weren’t with him)….
-your music should be abou where you’re from from an the sort o people yeh came from —say it once an say it loud. I’m black an i’m proud.
They looked at him… They were stunned by what came next.
-The Irish are the niggers of Europe, lads. (they nearly gasped it was so true) -an the Dubliners are the niggers of Ireland. The culchies have fuckin everythin. An the northside Dubliners are the niggers o Dublin —say it once an say it loud, I’m Black and I’m proud.
He Grinned. He had impressed himself again.
