Re: Talking Pictures in trouble for showing racist material again.

Can everyone just stop being disablist please? It’s not fair.

This is about racism, not disablism.

They don't just campaign on fighting bans of old TV shows and films, they fight against things like gender neutral toilets, and trans rights, together with the right to pick one's own pronouns, leading to a situation when instead of two, facebook offers 58 genders (https://abcnews.go.com/blogs/headlin...facebook-users ), as well as offering a "custom" option.

By pushing minor complaints like old TV shows that, TBH, people had probably forgotten until someone find some old tapes in an archive somewhere and put them on Cable TV, the Left are giving the right a weapon to use against them.
Spot on. Racial hatred, discrimination, etc is unacceptable. But trivialising the issue as befits ‘wokeism’ is morally indefensible.

The woke community will see off channels like ‘Talking Pictures’ if the government doesn’t step in to put an end to this nonsense soon.

Agreed. Enormous strides have been made to stop discrimination against minority groups over my lifetime. Things aren't perfect, but if the UK adopts this nonsense from the United States, I think that it will get peoples backs up and be counterproductive.

Alienating people who have fought all their lives to make things better serves no useful purpose at all and could even make things go backwards.

There is a growing backlash from many & varied people/groups, the likes that we never saw when sensible political correctness was introduced.

Re: Talking Pictures in trouble for showing racist material again.

No, racsm is no worse than any other type of discrimination, but you could be forgiven for thinking it is because of all the noise that some people make about it.

These are often virtue signalling white people too, whilst IME the majority of black people prefer to just get on with their lives and find the whole thing embarrassing.

The latest nonsense is a call for white people to be 'less white'

Re: Talking Pictures in trouble for showing racist material again.

It seems that commercial companies are trying to get onto the bandwaggon to try and show how right on they are:

It is indeed reverse racism.
