BBC apologizes over racial slur used in news report

BBC director general Tony Hall has apologized after a news report containing a racial slur was broadcast last month. The BBC included the N-word when reporting last month on a violent attack on a young Black man in Bristol, which drew more than 18,600 complaints. The BBC initially defended the use of the slur. Hall said he now accepts they should have taken a different approach.

It was used as a quote. People are easily offended idiots who care more about controlling others than reducing racism.

Society needs more offence, not less. At this rate China will be able to take over the world by spreading mean pamphlets.

Points for consistency on the N word. Either its crass for anyone to say it or its not crass at all. Personally I lean towards the former.

So the news can show someone being attacked or maybe even killed. But better not say any of the 'forbidden' words. Ya, makes perfect sense.
