EM: RACIST!!!! ME: Approved

Channel 4 News are falling over themselves to keep to the new “BAME” Twitter buzz term. It’s fucking toe-curling. And why?????

Can someone link me to the meeting where it was decided that “ethnic minority”, a simple, innocuous term that has been appropriate for decades and is no less appropriate today, is no longer faddy and millennial friendly enough?

Ethnic Minority. You’re an ethnic minority. Is that not…um….’special enough’ for you…? Did you need to stand out more?? Oh….no, you wanted equality…no wait….

Sigh……

It got even better right at the end when Krishnan, when making a correction to the story about ethnic minority deaths from the virus, said “black and minority ethnic”, when the reporter in the story had been saying “black, Asian and minority ethnic”.

Surely simpler and less confusing just to say “ethnic minority” then, yes…..?

I'm a gamer. I'm a coaster. I am happy in general. We're all born by chance and we're all gonna die. That makes me no better or worse than you. Get over that fact and we'll probably get along. I comment on the Google news feed a lot. Oh, and I swear quite a lot.

    1. Nah it isn’t about them this time (much as they can’t stand anything not being about them) it’s about the fuckwads on twitter again. Doubtless if I brought this up on there I’d get “the fact you’re questioning this shows your racism”. πŸ™„
