    1. the soul train line was unique…..the dancers exceptional….being coloured they had rhythm in their blood…and they came across as having a great fun time Elle….sad it’s no longer done….read the founder and compere committed suicide (?) which could have had something to do with it, not sure

      1. Not all black people are born with rhythm, trust me I know.
        I’ve seen interviews that some of the dancers appeared in and it was interesting how they were chosen. He ended his life on his own terms, he had brain surgery in ‘81 after which he would suffer seizures, was in constant pain. He isn’t the first or last person to do this, instead of prolonging the inevitable.


      2. Thanks for enlightening me on this. It’s so easy to form ‘incorrect’ conclusions based only on snippets of information. I seem to have this idea that black people generally have more innate rhythm compared to whites. Am I correct here?. I vaguely remember reading whites were also included in ST later on.

        I note you freely used the term ‘black’. This is the term I would naturally use also. It seems acceptable still over ‘coloured’?
