I Might Start Paying The Licence Fee.

I criticise the BBC a lot, praise where praise is due:

On August Bank Holiday Monday, the Ligali founder Toyin Agbetu was savagely attacked by security employees on the BBC 1xtra float at the Notting Hill carnival.

Toyin had been distributing flyers in support of a community campaign to institute a three minute silent tribute in remembrance of the original African Caribbean cultural vision of Claudia Jones for Notting Hill Carnival and the Ancestors of African people who fell as victims of racism throughout the Maafa.
For those unfamiliar with Ligali, read here.

Whoa - can't see your dust here. Care to explain this one, Ross?

On behalf of Mr Agbetu, who is currently occupied with important issues of victimhood, I hereby appoint you to the rank of Racially Insensitive Offender, Class A.

You'll be in good company.

Agressive and obstructive? Toyin Agbetu..?

That's unpossible... ;)

I wonder if he got off...?

James, Ligali are a black racist organisation whose achievements include inciting the black vs Asian riots in Birmingham a few years ago (by spreading bogus rumours about Asians gang raping black girls). Seeing there founder being beaten up seems like a good thing.

Yeah. Fuck Ligali. They claim to fight against racism, yet their members actions towards the Asians in this country have been despicable, as Ross says, they have blood on their hands with regards to the race riots in Birmingham.
