‘Racist’ BBC alter fried chicken post
THE BBC has been accused of racism after it posted a video online asking: “Black people and fried chicken – is there any truth in it?”
The corporation put the video on Newsbeat’s Twitter feed, on the last day of Black History Month, to promote a documentary about racism faced by black people in Britain.
The video was later reposted with a change in accompanying text.
