Prince Harry has been accused of racism again after reports that he told a comedian: "You don't sound like a black chap."

Mr Amos, who has appeared on many television shows including Have I Got News For You, said he put comment down to a poor attempt at making banter.

He said Prince Harry, 24, congratulated him on his performance before saying: "You don't sound like a black chap."

"I wanted to say: How is I supposed to sound?" said the comedian.

The new row comes after Harry was accused of racism after he referred to a Sandhurst colleague as "our little Paki friend".

He was also heavily criticised in 2005 after choosing to wear a Nazi uniform to a fancy dress party.

A former chairman of the Commission for Racial Equality says it shows how ill-educated members of the upper class can be.

Buckingham Palace is refusing to comment.

here we go again, the comedian was not offended why should anyone else feel so???:roll:

i have actually thought that about people when i have spoken to someone on the phone and then seen them i have thought to myself "i didnt think they looked like that"

people do it all the time you get an image of someone and then when you see them they dont look anything like what you imagined

I DOUBT VERY MUCH THAT THIS SHOULD BE CALLED "A RACE STORM"

i :lol: at this country sometimes

Naomi Byron, national secretary of Youth Against Racism in Europe, told The Mirror: 'Many young people will be disgusted by his remark – how is a black man meant to sound?
'But it is not just Prince Harry that is at fault. The aristocratic, rich circles he moves in obviously don't have a problem with this kind of racist stereotyping.'

Former Commission for Racial Equality chairman Lord Herman Ouseley said: 'It is very sad that Prince Harry thinks black people all talk in the same way. It just goes to show how ill-educated members of the upper classes can be.'

Yeah.
well that is because Harry is a spoilt little white So & So

(just restoring the balance of PC to the thread)
But really who cares?
if you're black you're black, if you're brown you're brown and if you're white you're white. Just be proud of what you are, unless someone uses a slang or derogatory word to describe you there shouldn't be a problem.

"You don't sound like a black chap."

i know plent of people my age dont give a toss about the royal family, he is not a role model to me or my child or anyone else i know. I dont think personally he said anything "racist" thou

saying i thought you were black/sounded black is not racist!!!

Its just the say as people calling us white is not really racist its a description of the colour of our skin, just like you would describe some one to the police if the robbed you.

Dont see the problem here...Harry is widely regarded as a complete idiot so no ones gonna listen to him, he will never be seen as a role model because of all the things he has done before and is up there with Prince Philip for stupid comments and actions, he just reflects the true nature of the upper class

Usual carp, the media and therefore the British public blow the incident out of proportion.

God, it's not the end of the blooming world. He could have said "Hey n-word, where's your homies" etc. I'd say that would be more racist.

Saying "You don't sound like a black man" isn't exactly derogatory racism. He could have said "You don't sound like a comedian/white/english/southerner/irish/scottish/mormon/rich" whatever. But the second a colour is brought into the discussion... RACIST!

God.

I keep losing my train of thought on these things... Meh.

i guess that was what he was inferring , still, the quote as given by 'bargainsurfer' would have been (slightly) more appropriate .

not very clever are they, these toffs from the higher echelons of society. spoon fed idiots.

Wow this country might aswell change its name to the PC isles or something. We seem to care more about offending anyone who isnt English than actually just being English. Yeah I understand he is a member of the royal family so is expected to behave as 'royal' as possible, but its coming to the point where being PC is getting in the way of us being English. This comment isnt even racist, I mean how many times have you met someone from another part of England and heard them speak and said ''you dont sound like a scouser'', or ''your Brummy accent isnt very strong for a Brummy''. The governent needs to grow some balls and realise who we are.. *cue applause and fireworks and stuff*

its only natural to be a little apprehensive of other races. Stuff like that goes back to caveman days. To be uncertain or wary of someone from another race isnt racist.
