I'd love to see that arrogant wee turd Alexander lose his seat in Inverness.


Gun to my head, if I HAD to pick one Alexander to get rid of, I'd have to choose Doogie over Danny.

Getting rid of both of them is the stuff of dreams

Coloured was definitely in use when I was growing up. I reckon the fact it just lumps all 'non-whites' together into one homogeneous group is what makes it offensive. 

 

 

Aye, I can see that actually.

 

However, BC was talking specifically about the lack of diversity in UK films, i.e. everybody is white.  So he is talking about the lack of non-white people - difficult (for me and my wee brain!) to see what other term he could/should have used.

 

I certainly don't think it would have went down well if had said "the lack of non-white actors"! And rightly so.

 

He should have phrased his sentence better, but I don't think he was being racist?

Mind the Argentina goal at the 2006 World Cup, Cambiasso against Serbia & Montenegro I think. He controlled the tempo of the goal and everything good attacking wise about that team went through him.
