In 2011 smug and delusional theatre school founder Ben Douglas appeared on the BBC Big Question show where he discussed being adopted in to a white family, described himself as an English man, poured scorn over the idea that he should also embrace his culture and said live on a radio talk show,
“it’s ridiculous for me to be running around in tribal gear and trying to cook over an open fire”.
Watch his appearance below on the BBC Big Question.
But not long after this appearance on the BBC Big Question Ben was left shell-shocked during a night out at the prestigious BAFTA Awards ceremony, held at the swanky Grosvenor House Hotel in London. While standing outside hairstylist to the stars and Kate Moss’ bestie James Brown walked up to Ben and called him a “nigger”. (Click here to read all about it).
Now I don’t condone what that washed up looking clown said but also didn’t and still don’t have ANY sympathy for Ben because as far as I am concerned he deserved this hard hitting wake up call. And the wake up calls continue to keep on coming for old Benny boy.
On today’s Daily Mail website an angry Ben talks about an unpleasant encounter with a police officer that happened two weeks ago. Up until this incident Ben who claims to have “plenty of black friends” and says he has worked with disadvantaged youngsters his entire adult life, thought that certain sections of the black community were all just a bunch of paranoid conspiracy theorists when they discussed the deeply ingrained racism within the police force.
I knew better than to mistake conspiracy theory for fact.
Yes Ben… the racism, the DECADES of police brutality and the countless deaths in police custody were all just figments of our imaginations.
*shaking my head*
But he is singing a different tune now….

The Damascene moment came as I drove home to Kingston-upon-Thames after seeing A Chorus Line at a London theatre. Settling back into the driving seat of my £36,000 black Audi A5, I was happily humming a tune from the show when I noticed a flash of blue in my rear-view mirror. I spotted an unmarked police car but continued my journey, assuming the flashing light was nothing to do with me, since I was driving at a perfectly legal 30mph. When I realised the car was on my tail I pulled over, wondering if, perhaps, my brake light was out. Five seconds later, a police constable was rapping on my window and shouting: ‘Open it!’ No sooner had I done so than he barked: ‘Is this your car, pal?’ I nodded, but before I could speak he launched into a tirade. ‘I don’t think you heard me right, mate. I asked if this was your car? It’s a very nice car for a bloke like you to be driving, isn’t it? Now I’m going to repeat the question, to be absolutely clear, and think hard before you answer me: Is. This. Your. Car?’ Again I tried to answer, again I was cut off. ‘Let me guess — it’s yours but you can’t prove it? Or maybe you’ve borrowed it from a friend? And you haven’t got your driving licence. Am I right?’ Finally given the opportunity to reply, all I could do was stare into his eyes, gripped by self-righteous fury.
“I was an idiot. What’s more, I owe a huge apology to Britain’s black community.”
Oh dear… the Alice in Wonderland world that Ben has resided in for so long has turned in to a nightmare. The wake up calls are proving too much for our Ben and he is now looking to embrace his brothers and sisters within the black community.
All I can do right now is laugh.
I am sorry but I have a long memory and find it hard to feel any form of sympathy for this man. He will have to continue to learn the hard way.
You are on your own Ben. Good luck!
