Big Brother Controversy

Today the Big Brother race saga continues, the contestant Emily Parr was seen to use a racial slur towards Charlie, a black contestant. And in the early hours of this morning, Emily was evicted from the house, and no doubt will be put to a trial by media.

My personal opinion on the matter is that, in something that bills itself as a REALITY program, any content that arises from the real situation should remain uncensored and as natural as possible, the only real point of the programme at all is to see how people react and relate to each other, and to take away the grittiness of real life is ridiculous.

The offening parts of the conversation were...(bare in mind only Emily was evicted

Emily: (referring to Charley dancing/pushing her hips forward) You pushing
it out you nigger.

but then....

Emily: Somebody has already used that word
in this house.

Charley: No way. (Pause) Yeah, me. I'm a nigger.
