Random Ms V 

Hideously White BBC

According to the Daily Mail the BBC is more "hideously white" than ever, after it was revealed that the number of black executives has dropped to the lowest in years. The BBC is planning to "fast-track" young ethnic staff to senior positions, which has led to accusations of positive discrimination.

This is such a bad idea, any black person working at the beeb unlucky enough to be "fast-tracked" into a senior position will find themselves hated by those below them and patronised by senior management.

This is another example of 'political correctness' gone mad. All ethnic minorities want, is a level playing field, we don't need to be patronised and fast-tracked into positions, so senior management can hit their ethnic quotas.

If the bbc feels guilty about ignoring ethnic minorities it should start with it's tv schedules. There are hardly any black shows (Crimewatch does not count ; - )) on the main BBC channels.

Chris Rock rocks the house

"Is America ready for a black president? Is America ready for a woman president? We should be - we've just had a retarded one" - Chris Rock At the Hammersmith Apollo

One of my favourite stand up comedians, Chris Rock performed at the Hammersmith Apollo last night. It was one hell of a show, haven't laughed so hard in a long time.
If you're a fan of black stand up comedy, you should definitely go see him. Most shows are sold out but they might add some more dates due to demand.

Did you see 'little miss jocelyn'? It was the worst comedy I have seen in ever...it made me cringe. We should put more effort into our programmes and stop being mediocre.
Maybe the BBC is actually showing that rubbish so people would not say they have no black programmes.
Yes I did have the misfortune of watching the second series of 'LMJ' on BBC2 and my opinion remains the same
See post from 06 -
Ah, Chris Rock. He is very good, isn't he? My husband just 'discovered' him this week and is having a blast watching his old shows and material. I wonder when he is coming my way...
Ijebuman, mo ti binu. You told us about Anita Baker in time for us to get good seats. But no info about Chris Rock. Missed all the shows and the ebay tickets available were overpriced :(
ma binu,i definitely should have mentioned it earlier. It seems the promoter misjudged how popular Chris was over here and they've now added more shows, he is now performing at the O2 23-24 may
I agree about the BBC. But I have to say that Jocelyn makes me laugh... I have only seen it a couple of times, but I couldn't stop laughing! Nothing wrong with it I don't think. The problem is that there is nothing of real substance that is black in addition to LMJ.
