Get Yo #BAME right, Jack..

Jackie Long talking to Jeremy Hunt just now on Channel 4 News said “black and ethnic minorities”.

Or #BAEM – which sounds a bit like some Arabic rapper.

I think the time has come to admit that hashtag-friendly buzzy acronyms haven’t worked out. Can we just return to saying “ethnic minorities”? It’s respectful, it’s functional, and broadcasters aren’t tripping over themselves all the fucking time in the scramble to remain woke.

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.
