White

Now that its almost over, could someone please tell me what exactly the point of BBC 2’s “White” season has been? Yes, the programme about Powell’s “Rivers of blood” speech was very good, but the rest of it seems to have been the type of Daily Mail style journalism that the BBC usually avoids. Was the intention to show that there was still racism in British society? If so, we didn’t need a week of programs to do that.

Given this short season can we expect the BBC to have a season called “Straight”, chronicling how many (homophobic) heterosexual couples feel that they are being increasingly under represented in the media?*

*Yes, this is sarcasm…(not irony as originally stated)
