Sad news, but he had a good, long life. Guess Who's Coming To Dinner was a breakthrough film in so many ways.

 


Dad and I watched games standing on the muddy slope of the Holmesdale Road end. He cheered and I rattled.

Great actor of the fifties and sixties.

Sadly from the seventies onwards he chose to do lightweight stuff most of which was rubbish, perhaps because he was tired of being an icon for his people who knows!

RIP

A decent actor who starred in a couple of race themed films.

The Russians are sabre rattling at the Ukraine border and this was the headline on ITV 10pm news.

ITN really are miles above parody. The woke brigade need to be exorcized and soon.

Your opinion of a TV channel and what they report has nothing to do with the discussion (especially in the first few posts!) about the death of a human being. Maybe start a thread about ITN if you have views and keep them away from a thread which (I can only assume the intention of the OP was) to show respect for a recently deceased person.

That would be you. Start a thread on Russia/Ukraine if you feel so strongly about the subject?

I have every respect for Mr Potier as a actor, which is how almost everyone knows him, just not for those that control ITN.

I'd have thought that was obvious from my post.

I am discussing the inappropriate position of this story in the ITN news.

Since this thread is in itself an announcement of his death, I'd have thought that most reasonable people would see this as the right place to post about its announcement on one of the two major free news networks.
I don't need your permission to express my condemnation of such agenda driven media decisions.

Totally unnecessary.

The long and short of it is that you're so racially obsessed that you're affronted even when the death of a ('decent') Oscar winning black actor makes the news. If you want a thread where you seek a roundabout way to diminish and slag off black blokes even when they've passed on, I suggest you start one.

Ever expressed anger on here regarding the prominence of news when a famous white actor passed? No, I thought not. Thanks for feeling so passionate about how this particularly death is perceived though. Very worthwhile.

Congratulations. You have surpassed yourself.

I might be wrong here, but I don't remember the death of a White actor of his standing ever being a headline on the main news.

It is quite clearly the media who are race obsessed, which in case you missed it, as you usually do, is the point I am making. This is just another example. As I said previously. ITN is beyond parody.

I liked Potier. He was a cool dude, but that is beside my point.
Let me be clear. I have no desire to debate this with you. I have made my point and that is all I wish to do.

Deaths of famous white actors have very obviously been headlines, front pages, the whole deal. You however have no angle to push there and so it's not something you notice or care about. What you're saying it so patently absurd I cannot even take seriously the suggestion that you believe it yourself.

It's a thread designed to respect rather than diminish. I don't want to help it be consumed by this kind of stuff, so I'll leave it at that.
