Some say he's his own racial and ethnic group.....

Some say that he is ethicity can only be defined in RPM, and that his ancestors conquered the areas of Le Mans, and Nürburg

loonatic112358: imagine that, an Anglo Saxon network full of Caucasians


what happened to 'best actor for the job?' so wacky.

- white actors: best actor for the job
- non-white actors: not best actors, taking jobs from white actors
- white actor in traditionally (or historically) non-white role: best actor for the job
- non-white actor in traditionally (or historically) non-white role: not best actor, taking jobs from white actors

Fk white people. So lame. So transparent.

Zarquon's Flat Tire: Gig103: Foxxinnia: American proportions.

Actual American proportions (~12.6% according to the last census) or American TV proportions (probably 30% or more)?

Seriously, 12.6%? Somewhere is skewing the hell out of the numbers from Atlanta. I went to Nevada a few years back, saw one black guy all week. It was damn unnerving.


Weird to say it, but I was freaked out when I went to America with all the black people(Australian here). I kept feeling like such a jerk because I was staring at them all the time, we have a very very small African population in Australia(2.2% and a lot of them are White South Africans) and I just kept looking at them because it was honestly weird to see so many black people in one place for me. I was mostly in Chicago at the time, so other parts of the country may have a lower black population, but if anyone who is black was creeped out by a white guy staring at you around St Patricks day 2008 I'd like to apologise, it wasn't racism. It was just a slight amount of Culture Shock.

Foxxinnia: Lack of diversity? I've always found the number of black people on British television to be substantial and wildly out of proportion to the number of blacks in Great Britain. It's like British TV is trying to make a shows easier to export to the States by bumping up the number of black characters to American proportions.


CBeebies, the little kids channels. Two presenters. One will always be from an ethnic minority, despite ethnic minorities making up around 10% of the population.

rugman11: hasty ambush:
BBC needs to concentrated on bigger problems like not taking do long to get out the new seasons of Top Gear and Sherlock.

That's going to be tough to do when you have two incredibly in-demand actors and an EP with another entire show of his own to run. It does sound, though, like they'll be startings season three production here pretty soon.

I've just learned to treat Sherlock like a film franchise. People aren't complaining about having to wait a year between Hobbit movies.


That is because the Hobbit movies are not as good.
