Amazing.

So name me one White actor whose death has been a headline on TV news. Potier is not even a particularly prolific or universally popular actor.

It's not in the least bit 'amazing' or 'astonishing' because it's happened numerous times. Sean Connery's death was the headline item for instance. Gene Wilder. It is what it is. The death of flippin Jade Goody was the headline item on the day she died, so it's a silly point to even bring up as something that can only ever happen as result of a behind the scenes nod and wink on account of Sidney Poitier's blackness.

It stood out to you and you sought a pejorative angle, for one reason and one reason only, the man is black. You're routinely negativity obsessed with the demographic and this is a textbook example of the utterly ridiculous lengths you are willing to go to.


Now if you can just let this man be and use a obituary thread how most normal people would use it that would be great.

Yeah, it all got a bit Davros towards the end.

Davros certainly had less dodgey rumours hanging over him. No one would believe the leader of the Daleks raped Natalie Wood from that wheelchair.

I read his biography (Douglas) at one point he says that he had sex with a different woman every night for a month so he certainly got about.

 


One more point

Bloody hell! That's some drive.
In comparison I bet Davros never got a Tinder call back....no wonder he was so p1ssed off all the time.

Although not the correct topic for the discussion but Tom Bradby (ITV News) is appalling. ITN hasn't been the same since Trevor McDonald retired.

 


It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark... and we're wearing sunglasses.

Do stop being so obtuse. It's boring.

He got top billing because he was Black and was associated with race related films. He was perfect for the Left wing Woke narrative of ITN, which I will say one more time, is beyond parody for its prejudice.

Now please stop responding with your disingenuous accusatory claptrap.

Not to denigrate Mr. Douglas’ effort but Fidel Castro was reckoned to have “enjoyed” two ladies a day for 40 years amassing somewhere around 35,000. Must’ve been worn down to a nubbin.

Taking no private property to a bit of an extreme but fair play to him. He's almost caught up with Boris.

 


I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

Red and Blue Army!

If Boris got up to those numbers he’d be a one man population explosion. Even more than he is now.
