Jeremy Clarkson with Lewis Hamilton? Race for Irony? Whither BBC? Will Barbadians let their conscience override wheels?
The attached letter is the basis of the current complaint to the BBC and Ofcom.
We believe that the BBC should dismiss the racists who were responsible for the N-word usage and previous racist broadcasts.
We have written to your embassy in London and all of your major newspapers to protest at the forthcoming tour but to date we have had no reply.
If profit is to over-rule racism, the world will suffer.
This is the race we have to win againstTop Gear.
We act for various clients (including Richard Rogers and Fred Jacobs, US citizens) who have brought a race complaint against Jeremy Clarkson (a tv presenter) and the UK’s British Broadcasting Corporation (“BBC“) for scripting and authorising the use of the N-word in filming for the “Top Gear” show. As it transpired, and probably due to our previous complaints about the use of racist anti-Mexican material on the previous show, the BBC and Clarkson got cold feet and the racist material was not broadcast, but the racist intent to profit from the use of deliberate but deniable racism was there.
Mexican people (both adults and children) living in the UK were subjected to racist bullying after the earlier anti-Mexican broadcast.
The BBC defended the anti-Mexican racist material on the basis that it was “British humour“. Mexicans were described as being fat, flatulent, lazy and feckless.
The BBC have similarly defended their recent scripting and broadcasting of the term “slope” (a racist slur for Asian people, short for “slope-eyed“) on its Burma/Myanmar special. Further to our recent complaint, they have recently withdrawn the racist term from the US and Australian broadcast of the show.
When confronted with his use of the N-word Clarkson denied he had ever used it. However, it appears in his autobiography and more importantly he had been caught on camera repeatedly mumbling it on un-aired footage.
He then issued a public statement begging the forgiveness of the UK public.
Clarkson subsequently withdrew the apology for his use of the N-word and said that the BBC forced him to issue it.
The BBC staff who scripted and approved the use of the N-word and all previous and later racist puns remain untouchable and un-investigated.
