‘Sack Jeremy Clarkson to make a real statement on racism’ How do Barbadians feel?

(EDITOR’s NOTE: Clarkson due in Barbados shortly, also named his dog which has black fur – after an African soccer player… Why?)

JEREMY CLARKSON‘S career at the BBC has come under further pressure after the editor of The Voice newspaper called on the broadcaster to sack the Top Gear presenter for using the N-word if it “really wanted to make a statement” about tackling racism.

Britain’s biggest black newspaper’s chief George Ruddock said the BBC “should take more serious action” after it emerged Clarkson said “n****r” when reciting the nursery rhyme Eeny, Meeny, Miney, Moe.

Clarkson originally denied using the racial slur, but then backtracked and admitted mumbling the N-word while making a grovelling video apology that was posted online last night.

Speaking about the latest race controversy to engulf Clarkson, Ruddock said: “If you were in a normal workplace and that was used, it would certainly call for disciplinary action.

How often is he going to keep apologising for these things?” (MORE AVAILABLE AT – THE VOICE ONLINE)
