I couldn't help writing about this topic on my tiny allotment on the Internet, I mean for clarification. So ashamedly my blog moves on from my exciting life to sinister and racist topics. Its very disturbing yet it's an issue that's must be addressed. This media frenzy needs to stop.
A belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.
An unfavorable opinion or feeling formed beforehand or without knowledge, thought, or reason.
These are definitions that are accurate, about the on-goings of the Celebrity Big brother house (for those of YOU that watch it). I don't understand what the hullabaloo is about, there is nothing racist about what Jade Goody has said, she is just prejudice, a girl with no formal training or proper education what else could you expect from a "white trash" (now that's not racist)?. Jermaine Jackson called jade that and it was disregarded.
Being African I have had people of different races talk down at me including bloody rag heads, but I understand because in this circle of life we all have a bit of prejudice in us, not exactly racism. A lot of people are ignorant not racist, most Caucasians have reservations about other races and vice versa. I think this topic about Jade being racist to Shilpa is just another way to make money and sell news, I think its baseless. Its unfortunate that the British public have been entrapped in this brouhaha. Honestly, they make it sound like Jade bludgeoned Shilpa to death with a club.
In hindsight, this insignificant issue wouldn't have been blown out of proportion if a Black person said that to Shilpa. Has it reached a point where whites are afraid to air their views to dark skinned coloured people without fear of being branded a racist?. Being black, I am appalled by the public response, there are more important issues to tackle at this crucial stage, like alleviating poverty for instance or dealing with WORLD peace.
My mixed race friend had some psychotic hippie call her a black girl (apparently her other Caucasian half was totally disregarded because its been stained by some black cells). I told her not to get upset, as the person in question was an ignorant daft prick.
I have used this tactic and it has worked for me, as i have grown older I try not to feel victimized by any non-black that i feel is prejudice...or plain stupid. I have a sharp tongue, I'll reduce the person to absolutely nothing. That's what Shilpa should have done and not be a cry baby or wallowing in self pity.
