Let’s take a look at the first word
up on the Woke-a-lator. BELL DINGS BAME – OK, a nice easy one
for you to start with. BAME. This is kind of the new word
for people of colour. OK, BAME – you’re going
to have to learn it. The BBC use it more and more. The Guardian, obviously, they’ve
been using it for a while – BAME. It’s an acronym. It stands for Black, Asian,
Minority Ethnic – BAME. OK? Simple as that, OK? Actually, you know, I suppose it’s
very similar to people of colour, as in what you used to have was
white people and people of colour. Now what you’ve got is
white people and BAME people. It’s essentially white people
and not white people. LAUGHTER Isn’t that what racists do? Is that not… Japanese, Chinese,
all the fucking same, is it? Is it me, or is BAME
just a little bit…? Doesn’t really matter
what I think, though, does it? Because BAME has become
the new, progressive forward-thinking word to describe
all dark-skinned Johnny Foreigners. So that’s… ..that’s progress. I’m making a point there, OK?
I’m making a point. My point is, it appears to me
that all you have to do sometimes to appear liberal
is use the right words, and that’s demonstrably bollocks.
It’s demonstrably bullshit, isn’t it? Which of
the following statements is the most bigoted? All right? WEST COUNTRY ACCENT:
“I’ve never met a coloured chap “that I haven’t gone
with like a house on fire.” HIS OWN ACCENT: Or… “I wish all them BAME people
would fuck off “back to where they came from.” Surely the attitude matters
more than the word. WEST COUNTRY ACCENT: “I walked
into a bar, it was full of benders. “Best night of my life.” HIS OWN ACCENT: Or… “In my opinion
the entire LGBTQI+ community “should be beaten with sticks.
You need to beat it.” Surely the attitude matters
more than the words itself. Anyway, but that’s BAME. You’re
going to have to remember it. Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic.
It’s an easy one to remember, right? # BAME! I’m gonna live forever… # That’s how you remember it, right? BAME – Black, Asian,
