Simon Barlow from Corrie

Found 6th Jul 2015
I wonder when it is going to come out that Peter isn't Simon's real dad? I mean, his mum, that florist woman, was white, Peter is white, but Simon is blatantly half cast. Wonder who porked his mum? Dev has to be among the top contenders.

Is this a joke post? Leanne adopted him, Peter is his dad - his first wife was black.

Incorrect sir. Simon's natural mother was called Lucy and she was white.
I thought that this was a deal's website?

I think you mean mixed race, "half caste" is an offensive term.

But with regards to your question, the character is not supposed to be mixed race anyway. Same with Adam Barton in Emmerdale, both his parents (in the programme) are white but he is in fact mixed race.

Probably been labelled as an offensive comment by a group of people who all have parents of the same race. In my opinion racism is the act of deliberately trying to cause pain or offence to a person purely because of their ethnicity. I was merely making an observation without trying to cause offence to anyone, except perhaps Corrie's producers.

Forgive me if i'm wrong but I thought Soap Opera's were fiction
We need a public inquiry.
Well, I guess the producers can't discriminate simply because the actor is mixed race, Maybe when he auditioned they screamed you can't discriminate or we'll sue etc..

I wouldn't recommend it, Pat joins in half way through and accidentally shouts out 'Frank' at climax.

Nooooo, we mustn't talk. Mark thinks I'm your stalker :-(
Wikipedia states:

"For some, the term half-caste is more offensive than mixed-race, even if the latter is suggestive of tainting and dilution of ethnicity."

he is becoming an annoying little sone of a.....
Jimi Mistry is half white, and nobody bats an eyelid when he plays the son of two Asians in corrie.

Disturbing double-standards at play if you ask me.

Oh I know, I only about 10 miles from Birmingham so I've been to most of the attractions etc, I think that's probably why I don't think there's much to see, I've already seen all of it.

I would pick Chichester any day X)
It was lovely, everywhere was so neat and clean, and everyone seemed so happy and relaxed, nice little town.
