What will they complain about next I wonder ? We seem to have a group of people in this country who will whinge and object about almost anything, including children’s TV.
Yes, the latest ‘racist’ programme on the BBC is … ‘Rastamouse’ !
Come on ! ..It’s entertainment for little kids of three or four years of age, and one of it’s creators is himself a black Rastafarian.
Rastamouse was launched on the BBC CBeebies channel as an animated series with particular appeal to young Afro-Caribbean children, and is based on the popular childrens’ books.
It appears that not only do some people think it racist, but they fear that their children will pick up the West Indian patois … and dat’s a bad ting.
What a load of old cobblers ! … When my daughter was young, one of her favourite TV shows was ‘Speedy Gonzales’, and she didn’t grow up …
… sounding like a Mexican.
