    Fucking embarassment. If he represents black youth then they have no hope.

    Is Paxman able to conceal his contempt?

    He's just taken off his M&S kecks and flicked them at Dizzee.

    I thought he was quite awesome, actually. And this comes from somebody who hates all things hip-hop. Paxman seemed to be amused too :D

    He was an embarrassment. He had fuck all of any worth to say, and even if he had, he completely lacked the ability to articulate it in an intelligent or coherent manor. Major fail.

    Heard about this from someone. What exactly did it achieve?

    A backwards step in race relations I think.

    ^ this

    It's a major problem that you can take the majority of black characters and personalities (not sportspersons / newsreaders) whom are regularly on British TV and easily place them in the category of clown or criminal.

    I think there's a vicious cycle, as those making the choices tend to choose these characters, they get the exposure, then they inspire more clowns to drift towards the entertainment business, or to act like clowns / criminals to get noticed.

    It's totally bizarre. Why do it? It'd be like getting Victoria Beckham on to discuss the rising tension between Russia and the EU over Georgia because she's an European citizen.

    It's the BBC being inclusive.

    Yoof audience: check

    'Urban' audience: check

    Realising that it doesn't matter who you put on Newsnight, you'll still get the same bloody audience anyway: epic fail

    He's black, though, and so's Obama, and that's what those blacks are like, right?

    /sigh

    Obama's mixed race though. As much white blood there as black.

    Should've got that bloke from The Streets on to even it up.

    Obama actually comes from Camberwell.

    Why? Was Lewis Hamilton the first mixed raced person to win F1?

    It was the first time they let "those"* people in.

    It was an utter disgrace him being on newsnight, utter disgrace.
    BBC selecting him is a greater error than the whole ross saga.

    "hiphop innit. hiphop."

    Idiot.

    Not until there are 30000 of us who haven't actually seen the interview.

    Nope, I'm pretty sure that many of the 'white' winners are mixed race too.

    It just doesn't count for some reason because one of the two races isn't visibly 'black'.

    I'm half slavic half Germanic, but here, in the west* I don't think it is quite the same. Looking at me you probably won't be able to tell. Not saying it's right, but people do judge by the cover.

    It got summed up to me when I was 19. I was in a pub in with some mates from uni playing pool. This group of fairly menacing looking blokes turn up and start playing with us. They're all really friendly and nice but then somehow one of them starts to go on about immigrants and how England is for the English. I was a bit drunk and decided to announce to him that I wasn't really English. He looked me up and down and then said, "It's alright though, cos your white, innit."



    *Elsewhere it is important. Twas an utter scandal when my parents got together and most of my father's side refused to speak to him ever again. Still don't. To piss them off even more he gave me a Russian first and middle name. :p
