“A lover of the UK urban lifestyle??? What the HELL is that???

“Do you have the looks, swagger and talent”

Hahahahahaha – I can’t……

This sounds like absolute rubbish!

And I assume that this show will feature a prominently black cast, seeing as the word “Urban” is the new, “non-threatening’ term for “black” in the UK.

They should actually do away with ‘Black British/African Caribbean etc on job application forms and just replace them with the word “Urban”.

UPDATE: The Voice Online reports.

Among the characters will be an “outrageously confident, busty black or mixed race female aged 21 – 28” and a “friendly, down-to-earth female with fair, tanned or olive skin”, according to a casting call.

  1. They are even specifying skin tone in this foolishness. Worse thing is I bet there is already a bag of applicants

  2. i think you should back off, this attitude stinks, give it a chance, there is a gap in the market for this, why should towie and chelsea peeps get noticed all time

  3. @Delila. Go siddung! What gap? It’s the licky licky attitude amongst black/mixed race individuals in this country that has got us wedged into a corner taking and accepting the blatant racism of the British media, seemingly without recourse. All because there are enough people asking the sane amongst us to “back off” and “give things a chance”. I don’t want the duncebats of the black community to be noticed on big, big television thank you very much. The days of “look there’s a black person on t.v!” should be bloody over. Cho, we can’t even keep Black History month from being a mix up “anybody, apart from the English” month. Anything “given” to us will surely be a bag of worries. The clue is in the word “urban”, “busty” and “olive skinned”. Wake up!
