The Guardian – Thursday’s best TV “Things We Won’t Say About Race That Are True”

Things We Won’t Say About Race That Are True
9pm, Channel 4
That the channel behind Immigration Street would schedule such catnip for Not-Racist-But-ers isn’t a surprise. Having it fronted by Trevor Phillips, former Equality and Human Rights Commission chair, might be. Phillips examines our reluctance to discuss race, positing that noting statistical trends weighted towards individual races need not be sinister. Despite claims made throughout the programme, few minds will be changed by this inconclusive stat-fest.
