For calling her an Indian and describing her eating habits?
Big Brother is a social experiment, and it’s main objective is to cause controversy, and she very well knew the circumstances and what she was getting herself into before she signed the contract, didn’t she? So why all this furore? There are far more demanding issues to discuss and debate about at the Commons that a case like this, aren’t they?
I do not watch Big Brother – its vulgar, it’s obscene and the people taking part with the mercenary turn of mind are all undignified. I have, however, watched briefly, the clips of what was said and there is no denying that there could have been elements of racism there, but the fact is she was simply bullied! plain and simple. She was ganged upon. As for racism, it has been here since time immemorial and will always be here – there will always be the boorish ignorants with their bigotry out there somewhere, but it doesn’t deserve such coverage!
So, is the media blowing this thing entirely out of proportion or is it a reflection of how sensitive the British have become to anything related to racism?
