The UK has to be among the most racially tolerant countries in the world, I wish these people would stop trying to stir up problems.

Agreed, seems crazy all these people travelling all through Europe and Africa to come specifically  to the UK only to tell us we are racist !

Seeing as there is only 0.7% asian or british asian of chinese extraction in the uk I am not suprised she is the only asian chinese on the set.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethnic_groups_in_the_United_Kingdom

More Asians on uk tv than brits on chinese tv .

 

 

Indeed.

 

Just another "entertainer" thinking she's important enough to lecture everyone on a currently fashionable topic.

 

And of course, it's only Western Democracies with predominantly white indigenous people that this applies to. 

 

Has she comments about white people not being represented in Bollywood? Or Chinese TV? 

 

The BBC if anything is vastly over represented with minorities totally out of proportion to the British populations percentage ethnicity.

 

But as we are learning, white people/governments are now perceived as soft touches.

Not many Asians in the UK would trade their lot in life for that of a person working in the Film industry, especially behind the scenes; it'd be a lowering of standards.

Yes and in the series i watched The artful dodger was black .. i also saw a year or two ago a series about hookers in Victorian times ,the brothel owners were a black male with a white wife ,you really couldnt make it up. just waiting for James Bond to be a black tranny in a wheelchair

The armrests will double as machine guns and the whole thing will be rocket-propelled on demand.

These people must be on something, either that or they're just trying to cause trouble. Almost every show I watch from the UK has non-whites in it, whether the parts call for them or not. Even period dramas. The ratio of non-white to white is far higher than it is in real life. I'd also like to add (and I find it really annoying) that the whites are more often than not portrayed as real nasties, whereas the non-whites are the salt of the earth. The UK has to be among the most racially tolerant countries in the world, I wish these people would stop trying to stir up problems. They want to try being a pensioner for a few months, they'd have something to drip about then.

I just watched the first episode of Casualty that came out in 1986. It had at least 1 black actor in a major role, a Pole man and an Irish woman in a major roles ( do they count as diverse? ) a woman of colour as the receptionist, and I'm sure there were a few "diverse" characters as extras. Yet someone I've never heard of that has been in movie/ tv series I've never heard of is apparently being taken seriously. World has gone mad.
