Channel4 bleeped it out and people assumed it was paki!

that would mean that the said people are the racist ones!

Racism is not only in the words used.

Smart people (and yes I include Jade's mother) know how to desccriminate without using taggable words.

Like refusing to eat food cooked by a person... on fake safety or taste grounds.

Exactly - nobody ever heard the word Paki and it was blown way out of proportion.

Yet everyone suddenly had an opinion - this is where the whole apparent racism stemmed from.

If it happened of course Jack should have been reprimanded.

Shilpa I would imagine would have complained.

Prionsais Jade's mother is hardly racist - Jade's Father is a half cast.

Why do people take every little thing out of context!

Victims of racism will quite often (not always) rationalise and say "it was not racist, it was just a joke, in was tongue in the cheeck".

Just like Japser always said Heidegger was not a Nazi.

Victims can tend to minimize the segregation they are subject too from people they try to associate with.

The worst version of which is when they start oppressing their peers themselves.

Yes and it is very commonly seen amongst women who are victims of abuse at the hands of their spouses or partners.

SN my point to Prionsais was that he was nit picking at every little thing.

During her interview she said nothing disrespectful about Shilpa, just that she could not pronounce her name.

But of course when Shilpa couldn't pronounce Dirk's name a big joke was made out of it.

Which raises the point - Is it only because she is a different colour that this racism is being brought up.

Nothing has been said to her or about her and her comments - if she was white and said these to Black people I would onlypresumer the racist card being played again.

But if they are picking on her for certain traits, traits that are inevitable tied up in her being Indian, that to me is racism.

Jade's mother never tried to pronounce HER name.
I heard her say "I will not pronounce HER name".

Did she not keet referring to her as "the indian"?

Edited: traits like her "accent".
