Is it a stray incident or something sinister that reflects the psyche of the ‘stiff upper lip’ British?
More than half a century after they were unceremoniously thrown out from South Asia, some Brits still haven’t got out of the straitjacket. That they
still think of South Asia as slaves to the Brits is totally out of sync with reality.
These worthies should know that Britain is a ‘Sunset Power’, on a downward spiral, with a growth rate less than hair on a bald man’s head.
Whereas India and China are the emerging giants growing at an incredible 10%!
So all this racial slur being indulged in by these worthies needs to be out rightly condemned.
So what’s all this about? It’s about a reality show called Celebrity Big Brother being broadcast in the UK, where India’s popular movie actress,
Shilpa Shetty is taking part.
Celebrity Big Brother 2007 is the fifth series of the United Kingdom reality television series Celebrity Big Brother, a spin-off of Big Brother.
The series is currently broadcasting on Channel 4 in the United Kingdom (also on S4C in Wales), and involves a number of celebrities known as
housemates, who live in the Big Brother House with no contact with the outside world.

In an argument between Jade and Shilpa, as witnessed by Danielle and Jo, Jade was derogatory about India by referring to Shilpa as a 'princess of
After an argument between Shilpa and Jade, witnessed by a giggling Jo and Danielle, Danielle recommended Shilpa "just fu*k off home".
After an argument between Jade and Shilpa, Jade referred to Shilpa's sari as "a duvet".
Jack Tweed allegedly called Shilpa Shetty a "fu**ing Paki" though Channel 4 has stated that he called her cu*t, not a Paki. (Shilpa is an Indian and
NOT a Pakistani. Gross ignorance). And why do most Brits call South Asians ‘Paki’? Real dumb, to say the least!!
Now if this isn’t gross racism, what is? Thank heavens not all Brits are Ill-mannered brats! But the others need to change their mindset. And
sooner, the better.
