Isn't this pish the very essence of racism in itself?

Meeting at the Beeb -

"How do we show we're not racist?"
"I dunno, we need more ethnics."
"What, like blacks?"
"Yeah, those are the fellas."
"Cool, cool, not enough though...."
"Why don't we get rid of all the white people then?"
"Yeah, sounds good.... how do we write that one?"
"Well, we could make the storyline all about how bad the nasty whites are to the black people, only wanting to earn an honest crust in Engerland."
"Sorted."
*high fives all around, racism - DONE*

Makes my blood boil.

EastEnders is to air the first episode featuring an entirely black cast for the first time in its 23-year history.
Why is that news?
Who cares, BBC parading thier "multicultural" broadcasting around as they try to keep within thier code of practice to keep thier license fee methinks.

Complete non story. Eastenders has done single hander, double hander episodes and single family episodes before, so this is just another one in that series.

Yes it's noteworthy that the characters are black as it hasn't happened before but if it actually does accurately portray the black experience in the UK in the 1950s and later and in that bit of London in particular then fair enough. May be more noteworthy as there aren't that many ethnic minority families in other soaps.

What are they supposed to do? Have the family saying how nice the British people were when they first moved and how there were/are no problems?

Will point out strongly that I do not now and have not at any time watched EastEnders!

It's not fucking news, it's a stupid self-congratulatory smug pat on the back for Auntie Beeb, doing her bit to inflate the egos of minorities.

Sorry, I thought there was some fcuking directive that stated all these fcuking soaps HAD to be representative of the ethnic mix of the British people - ie: every program had to have its token wossname or two otherwise it was racist and exclusive.

Didn't matter whether it was The Bill, Eastenders, Coronation St or any other bl00dy program - even to the point of putting ethnic minorities in HISTORICAL re-enactmenst and period dramas when we didn't have such minorities in England!!

Now we've reached a new stage whereby it's perfectly acceptable to have a program that doesn't show one indigenous face - AND NOT ONLY IS IT ACCEPTABLE TO THE PC BRIGADE, IT'S TO BE APPLAUDED!

CNUTS!

I know it is off topic :oops: But its a Pity Lesley Grantham didnt say sorry to the German Taxi Drivers family who he Stabbed and Robbed when he was a Squaddy in BAOR 8O

Ha ha ha. We used to love it when he was on that Cluedo programme playing Colonel Mustard

When they tried to solve the mystery, we'd all be shouting.

"It was Lesley Grantham, in the taxi, with a shooter!!!"
