Carry on being racist
Because Nick Ferrari is a racist. He has demonstrated his racism on an edition of Sky News’ The Pledge. What happened has been much discussed, and can be put directly. His co-host Afua Hirsch had told “All over the world, statues are coming down … now it’s time to take a long, hard look at problematic figures that we continue to glorify”.
So who was going to reply to her? Yes, it was Ferrari. “I really like you, but” he began. And it was a big but. And then he said it. “Why do you stay in this country?” WHAT? He doubled down. “If it offends you so much, how do you manage to stay here?”. I say, uppity black person, if you don’t like OUR country, why don’t you go elsewhere?
Why so? Consider who has reported Ms Hirsch's concerns. The Express ran an item. And of the mainstream media, that’s it. Sure, new media outlets, particularly left-leaning ones, have covered it, but not those that form part of the establishment. But perhaps Spiked, so called because it should have been long ago, will be along to excuse Ferrari.
The problem for the media establishment is not just the racism. It’s that those indulging in it are allowed to not only do it, but to get away with it. And that’s not good enough.
