    Racist or not... Scott Mills show today

    Hi, I dont know if anyone listened to the Scott Mills show in the morning today ie 9th July. They have this feature called "Whats occuring" around 8:15am ish. Its basically a face off between becky and Chappers and they do all sorts of silly things. Today, they made the Two Cheeky girls call up Westwood and ask him to come to their place for a meal as they wanted to cook him a Romainian Dinner.
    He said he would give them a call when he had free time. Obvioulsy he didnt look like he was interested. One of the girls said, so How old are you? and he said 27, to which she replied thats great cause I am single.

    And then she asked him for a rough estimate of date for the dinner... to which he replied "keep it European" and hung up!!... now I found this to be quite a rude thing to say as if implying " I am not doing anything (dinner or whatever) because you are European and go to your own kind" or something.. !!

    Am I being stupid here.. but it does sound like he was being racist and i think it wasnt right!!

    BTW the object of the whole thing was for BEcky or Chappers to guess the length of time before Westwood hung up.. !! It was a game, but Westwood didnt know it. (but the cheeky girls did). so to me it sounded like he really meant it to be derrogatory towards Europeans or something!!

    Any comments!!

    Cheers

    I'd say it was probably just tongue in cheek and as a nation we are way to quick to call anything that walks the line racist. I'd have to listen again to be sure but I doubt it.

    LOOOOOL

    Westwood is such a tool!

    Dont think he was being racist though...

    Westwood is a bellend full stop. Hes 50 year old white vicars son from wales who thinks hes a 25year old black man from the ghetto, he needs a reality check big time.


    racist...dunno

    tw*t.......definately

    Westwood who?

    yeah well.. i thought it was tongue in cheek as well.. but the way he said it and hung up.. you know.. just sounded like "stay with your own kind" and i was surprised they aired the whole thing..

    I am no fan of his, but I dont brand him a racist.. but after they played the clip back.. just sounded wrong!!

    Westwood is European, where does racism come into it?

    I was driving when I heard it and almost had to pull over :thumbsup:

    Things like this suggesting Racism is what is making this country a nanny state hell hole.

    People are soooooo easy to offend these days. What happened to people?? :-(

    siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh

    Well said syzable.

    Is all this some people have got to worry about?

    I think it was a play on "keep it real", I very much doubt they would have broadcast it if there was any hint of racism about it. Westwood comes over as a complete tool, but having watched him interviewing various big stars he always says these things with a wry smile, he KNOWS hes being a tw*t and thats what keeps him famous, hes just hammig it up.

    try telling HIM that lol

    You should get therapy, you seem to be a bit obsessed with race. :thinking:

    Maybe you should find something more productive to do that sitting listening to the radio looking for something to be offended by :-D

    I only listen to Scott when Moyles is on holiday, can anyone enlighten me on what happened to Laura, has she been replaced by Becky?

    Yes Laura left the show and Becky has replaced her. I miss Laura :-(

    I, for one, completely agree with the OP.

    Tim Westwood, one of the DJs who not only plays 'black music' on 1extra but is also pioneering bringing the said genre into the mainstream on Radio 1 is definitely racist.

    /end sarcasm.

    And yes, the guy is a tool, but take him for what he is, a guy that can sit back and have a laugh at himself.

    i really don't understand what there is to be offened by? each to their own i guess

    Jeezeypeeps.. i am not obsessed with race, and i never said I was offended.. i just wanted to know what others felt.. right.. looks like you dont have anything better to do than make nasty comments....just shows what you'd be like in a conversation..thanks for your insight as well.. i shall make sure it goes into the bin..

    Cheers saint, thats what Ive been telling people. I am not offended cause it wasnt offensive.. I said it sounded wrong thats all.. maybe Racism is a taboo now, and we cant even have a conversation wihtout people bringing up their gaurd and accusing others of being too sensitive or racist..

    Id remove this thread if I could.. but I can't.. obviously.. I've had some good insights from people.. and I do now feel it was more of a fun thing.. and may have sounded wrong then.. but overall i think wasnt racist.. I think this thread has been useful bar a couple of "listen to me i say rubbish" comments.. !! cheers to all.. thread closed

    Why bother posting this ****.

    I thought this site was about getting great bargains not talking total cr** !

    well I think I get your point.. and I like the way you put it forward as well..

    It was one one of the first 5 attempts of using the site as a community.. but obviously this has upset people.. So I will be a bit more careful in the future. Thanks for the tip ODB. Anyway I have requested the mods to lock this thread.. just waiting for them to do it..

    Cheerio

    well the fact that they said they found it "quite rude" would suggest there was some offense taken (though not personally)....no? and the fact that they took the time to post would suggest that they thought others maybe offended. i wasnt suggesting that i didnt understand why the the OP was offended, more that i didnt understand why anyone would be offended....pfft

    What a xxxxxx.....and I don't mean Westwood. What the hell is the matter with 'people'. No racism or offence to the devil intended if that makes you happy.... LOSERS

    Just to say OP, please don't get upset with this kind of trolling above. It isn't the way most people on this site behave. You are entitled to your opinion and most members will remain polite even if they disagree. And you'll find it easier not to take these kinds of responses personally when you realise that they say more about the poster than you. The 2nd person is new, but just take a look at some of the previous posts of Jeezypeeps. He obviously gets a kick out of trying to offend people and should therefore be rightfully ignored. People who do this kind of thing consistently eventually get banned from this site. ~~ Keep positive and don't let the trolls get you down ~~ :thumbsup:

    Op you are pathetic, it's people like you who cause political correctness … Op you are pathetic, it's people like you who cause political correctness to go to far.



    hang on, why join in the clamour? Is there any need to use the word 'pathetic'? Why can't you put your point across without trying to demean someone? The OP wasn't attempting to cause offense - why should you...? :thinking:
