Blacker Dread, otherwise known as Steve Martin, is the subject of a BBC film, Being Blacker [March 12 BBC2]…a bit of a love story really, between the film-maker, Molly Dineen, and Dread. Dineen didn’t want to ask him any awkward questions that might put responsibility for his troubles onto him as it might have come between them and they would have lost that ‘fundamental sense of friendship’. So not a critical and impartial film then. Is there anything that might result in any criticism…such as being a leading figure in the Brixton Riots or being jailed for a massive money laundering scheme? No…his problems are all down to racism…the film apparently a ‘unique insight into what it is to be black in Britain today.’
Once again the BBC concentrates on the bad, the grievances, the racism and the alleged failure of Black people to be successful in Britain due to that.
When will the BBC tell the truth and bring a positive view of Black communities and people to the screen? The BBC is so intent on creating a case against Whites as the cause of all Black peoples’ problems that it fails to do justice to that community. Are there no successful Black people in Britain? No business-people, no academics, no musicians, no actors, no sports-people, no scientists or engineers or philosophers or inspirational teachers? No, in the BBC world Blacks are all gangsters, crooks or failures, victims of white racism and oppression. That’s the message the BBC sends out…it’s a deliberate message shaped to generate white guilt and political action and some positive discrimination…but all it does is send a message that Blacks have no place in Britain, they can’t succeed with the odds, allegedly, stacked so high against them. Once again the BBC spreads dangerous, divisive and wilfully misleading messages that does enormous harm to Black people and utlimately to the whole of society.
The road to Hell is paved with good intentions…so if you spot any more of those BBC good intentions raise the alarm and list them here……
