Jemima Slade stated on a recent Big Brother show to another contestent that she does not fancy black men.
?Does this makes her a racist. Another housemate found the comments made by Jemima deeply offensive, making a big scene about it which resulted in a
formal warning aginst Jemima by the Big Brother show.
?Was this a fairly decided by BB. I happened to be watching BB at the time and I felt no real offence had been commited in the context of the subject
Racist? No. A stupid thing to say during a social gameshow? Yep.....
Besides, for all we know, she could have had bad experiences with them in the past, etc. Simply hard to know if she meant it in a racist way without
such context....but I doubt it....probably just a preference, and nothing wrong with that.
It would depend on in what context she stated such, and I did not see it. There are many women that are not physically attracted to men of other
races. If she made the statement in that particular context it is in no way a racist statement. If she said it in the context of judging all black men
by stereotypes then I would say it could possibly be considered a racist comment.
