Here’s a forum thread we came across recently regarding race and television. http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showthread.php?t=689485 .Now, it’s nothing new but that’s the problem. The people having this debate are students who are probably between 20 and 25 on average. This just happens to be in the UK but it could be in many other countries. Now compare the attitudes in this debate to the spirit the children in our Fun Stuff section ( https://binoandfino.wordpress.com/fun-stuff/ )are showing. At EVCL, we see multi cultural children’s TV as very crucial especially in this day and age of increased media consumption. We’re about being inclusive and not splitting down racial lines. There’s too much good stuff around.
We grew up watching Japanese Speed Racer and Voltron cartoons and Sesame Street, Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Pink Panther, Flintstones from the US with Danger Mouse and Postman Pat from the UK and loved them all! So what’s wrong with adding some TV shows that are just as fun and educational but also show the world from a black African perspective? Is that so scary? Really?
