Danny Baker said that it wasn't meant to be racist and I think we have to take him at his word. When I seem a chimpanzee, I don't think "that's a black person". It's the person who does see a chimp and thinks it's a black person who is probably racist.
The media frenzy for a good social shaming annoys me. They are like sharks who smell blood in the water.
My friend made a post on Facebook saying "Shame on you, Danny!" Then she said that she had never listened to his show and didn't really know him.
She just got off on presenting herself as virtuous by casting "shame" on him.
Everyone is or has been a bit racist at some time or other and it seems to me that it's hypocritical to go on a witch hunt.
Like Jesus said, "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone!" (or some such).
