Reggie Yates - Dat's racist
"BBC star Reggie Yates has apologised for using the phrase "fat Jewish guy" in a recent podcast.

In the interview, he said: "The thing that makes it great about this new generation of (music) artists is that they ain't signing to majors.

"They're independent, they're not managed by some random fat Jewish guy from north west London, they're managed by their brethren."

Oh dear. Maybe he should make one of his oh so interesting documentaries on the subject.

He could have made his point about artists not using ‘the same old management’ without identifying fat Jewish guys in a bit of a lazy stereotype.
Like most things these days I imagine the people identified don’t give a shit but professional offence takers are hurt on their behalf.

Re: Reggie Yates - Dat's racist
It was a derogatory remark and stereotyping.
You can not say stuff like this publically these days.
Not sure why some are having trouble understanding this.
If similar was said about a black person or a Muslim by a white guy it would have been a bigger issue.

As an atheist of average weight I reserve the right not to be offended by his remark. I can't claim to speak for fat Jewish guys but I'm pretty sure none of them would give a flying fuck about such an innocuous comment either.

Country, dogs, etc.

Wise words and so so true.
Divide and rule is not just created by the left it's always been the way in Britain and it's empire.
It's how the ruling classes stay on top.

Re: Reggie Yates - Dat's racist
It's a lazy, perjorative stereotype. It reinforces casual racism. Like saying, I'm not a shop owner, like some Pakistani from Ealing.

However....

...that's all it is.

I fail to see why the guy can't just say, "Sorry, I lazily reinforced a stereotype that would be insulting to some people. I apologise." Aaaaand everyone just moves on.

It's not as if he did somethign really damning and shameful, like backing Britain First in front of hundreds of millions of followers...

Lovely timing though, you have to say, with Trump's latest impending political hand grenade set to go off in Jerusalem.

Yeah that does make some sense- I guess if you're combining 'Jewish' with something derogatory people might get offended.

What Reggie said was hardly as bad as " Fucking French fuck" but you are obviously right, cant say anything these day's although that is not a bad thing I guess it is just over protection which is slightly silly but no one must be offended, ever, ever ever.

Re: Reggie Yates - Dat's racist
The double standards on here are brilliant. He's describing a kind of person who managers musicians. I've met loads of them and he's pretty accurate in his description. They do tend to be obese, men and Jewish. Not sure what the issue is.

I had reason to once question our director of HR about whether it was racist to call someone a 'fucking French fuck'. Apparently, as soon as you introduce race/nationality into an insult, you are using the term as a pejorative, because you are associating the race with the rest of the insult.

I don't make the rules, by the way, or necessarily agree with them.

I sort of do not get it either how is that racist,

Maybe some races do not wish to be spoken about even when it points at there success, I thought everyone knew that the majority of Music Cinema Television Moguls are of Jewish origin the big labels in America are nearly all owned by American Jews and good luck to them they had the brain to do it.
Just look at Actors who are American of Jewish origin and the truth is that for such a tiny population they are way out front.
I am starting to sound like a racist, I searched on Google and their are so many stupid anti Jewish sites talking of how much power Jews they have and I have no problem with it as the reality is they are brilliant at all they do .

Re: Reggie Yates - Dat's racist
'Fat Jewish guy' isn't racist.

Unless the word 'Jewish' is now racist?

I suppose there's the insinuation that Jewish people 'run the world' in what he's said.

But...... pffffft.

Fuss over nothing.

'Some random fat Jewish guy from north west London'
Racist? Very possibly. It panders to a stereotype which is dodgy to say the least.
Offensive? Most definitely.
Still, what can you expect from some resentful angry black guy from north London with 16 hoodies hanging in his wardrobe?
