This is a serious question for all thinking Blacks.
It needs to stop, period!
There is currently an advert running on sky about Ross Kemp going to Nigeria, "the dark heart of piracy".
[li]Last year, the BBC news website had the apartheid flag on its Africa front page. It was up there for a couple of weeks despite complaints being made. This same BBC would be up in arms if the swastika was on a rival’s front page.
[li]We have since left the period that started with slavery and ended with colonialism and apartheid, why do we still have these sorts of phrases and actions emanating from agencies like Sky and the BBC?
[/li][li]On the Discovery channel, there are several openly racist programmes, the worst being one called "Congo". In this programme, which was mainly about gorilla’s; the use of phrases like "deepest, darkest Africa" are so frequent that you wonder how it could have made it through censors.[/li]
Why do we allow these things go on?
The time has sincerely passed when we could be referred to as monkeys or subhuman. This is whether those derogatory references are direct or implied.
What is the best course of action to take? Is class action the way forward or do we set up counter websites? Please comment.
