- The BBC
A petition calling for David Starkey to apologise for “racist” comments he made on Newsnight – during which he claimed that "whites have become blacks" - has gained more than 3,000 signatures.
Historian Starkey was on BBC2’s Newsnight on Friday to discuss the London riots. His claim that the riots were caused by “black culture” infiltrating other parts of society angered many viewers.
“A particular sort of violent, destructive, nihilistic gangster culture has become fashion and the black and white, boy and girl, operate in this language together.
“The whites have become black,” Starkey said.
I am hereby signing this petition to protest against David Starkey's racist comments on the BBC show Newsnight.
