Dizze are you Dizzy?


I think Dizze was the wrong choice, its like I kind of see what my mans trying to say but the guy can’t articulate himself well enough that the majority will not just see him as a stereotype for all ‘Black Boys’.

Firstly I’m asking myself why? Obama just got elected, am I really thinking to myself

“oh i wounder what dizze thinks about the election”

or

” hmmmmmmmm what are dizze’s polictical views”

haha

NO

And also I noticed how Jeremy Paxman is trying to boy off (patronize) Dizze on the sly. Asking him do you think your British?

What kind of f***ing question is that?!

“This message is in regards to the 9pm programming on BBC 2.

Hip Hop artist Dizzee Rascal, was commissioned to be one of the spokes persons in the discussion regarding President Obama.

It made no logical sense to ask the opinion of a UK Hip Hop artist, Dizzee Rascal, for his opinion as he had no influence or anything worthy to contribute to the discussion.

Having watched the various other news channels discussing this momentous occasion, I have to say this was the most ridiculous and disappointing viewing I had experienced.

Other political programmes, who asked for the opinions of well known figures outside the realm of politics, showed positive black figures such as Oprah winfrey and Sean Carter (Jay Z).

Why is it that our British broadcasting channel always seems to let us down when it comes to selecting black representatives? The election of Obama signifies a positive movement towards change and should inspire all people. However this inspirational feeling was abruptly ended and normality resumed, by this terrible segment in your BBC programme.

I am a minority in this country who pays taxes, and more importantly a Television License which pays for the BBC programming.

Why is it that Britain’s minorities are always depicted in this negative light, making our positive achievements seem somewhat belittled.

The BBC creates a false impression of what we are. They promote one side of the spectrum, which is usually the negative side.

By showing this negative imagery consistently it breeds this ‘negative’ stereotype that you promote to our impressionable youth. This is called Self-Fulfilling prophecy, a theory of Sociologist, Robert K. Merton.

There were many intelligent black people from the UK which would have represented us correctly, but due to the negative images that the BBC so regularly promotes it was fitting for them to pick a RAPPER, to speak on one of the most momentous occasions for black people in the 21st century.

Wouldn’t Lewis Hamilton, who is the first person of ethnicity to win the grand prix, or UK artist Bashy had been more appropriate?

This messaged will be sent too thousands of your ‘undervalued’ Black/Minority customers. We are seriously tired of your negative imagery which we have had too endure for far too long.

This is not a message to be taken as a threat, more as promise that we as a people ‘will’ boycott the BBC if we do not see or hear of any steps towards change in respect to our viewing.”
