Bear in mind that as recently as 2011, David Williams & Matt Lucas were getting 10 million viewers watching them in blackface make up.

Nearly 13 million people in this country voted Tory at the most recent election.

That would make for an interesting Venn diagram.

Good discussion.

Those pointing out that something was no less intrinsically racist because it happened earlier, are of course, right.

However, Pandarilla is not altogether wrong either, in suggesting that the 'moral crime' (if it can clumsily be put that way) was  a bit different then, because sensibilities were different.  That is complicated though by the fact that the offence felt by the target was every bit as real as would be the case now.

We all like to think our stances have been independently arrived at, but the reality is that they're shaped massively by context.  The past really is a different country in which they do things differently.  That does need acknowledged.

Imagine being that good at drawing and deciding to waste it on Harry fucking Maguire.

Not sure if Portrait Paul's technique isn't just turning a colour photo into black and white, blurring the edges, and adding some funny looking ears.

Skinner ( napoleon ) also had Sophie Ellis Baxter on his show to apologise to her

A new theme for chat shows - insult someone and get them on to apologise !

Baddiel is an arsehole and his apologies have always been insincere, see the one below as an example.  He even managed to be racist in his recent book on anti-semitism, which is a fair old achievement. 

Perhaps it was. My word.

Clearly the only way to solve this is to put Jason Lee in a time machine and give him his own 1996 show where he wears a Groucho Marx kit and shouts ‘Frenk! Frenk! Have you drank all my Manischewitz again you alcoholic putz’ with a Brummie comatose in pished breeks in the corner.

They were slagging off his hairdo not his ethnicity 

What you have put above even on the basis of trying to make a point is undoubtedly racist

And the pineapple and a Forest shirt with his name and number on the back wouldn’t have made that perfectly obvious without the blackface?
