I have heard a lot about channel 4’s documentary ‘Angry, White and Proud’ which was aired this Wednesday. I still need to watch it myself but for some reason I am really hesitant in watching this documentary. Probably because it’s the same crap all over again. The British White Christian bigots against the British Pakistani Muslim bigots. “Them vs us”.
Watching these kind of shows are indeed very insightful but for someone like myself who is just all too familiar with this issue these documentaries are incredibly tiring and mentally exhausting to watch. However this time round instead of me dissecting the documentary because in all honesty I’m just so sick, tired and bored of the whole “Pakis go home” campaigns or “Britain needs Islam” campaigns. This time round I rather look at the reaction of the viewers. Most viewers posted their reviews online and the source I will be using is good old Twitter.
@bkksomchai – I’m watching ‘Angry, white and proud’. Its making me sad, white and ashamed.
@MickMcCarsey –Somewhere in another country, a Muslim is watching Angry White and Proud and trying to explain that not all British people are ‘like that.’
@DonnyBlade83 –Watched Angry, White and Proud last night, excellent documentary. Now, will Channel 4 show the inner side of radical Islam in this country?
@TheDaveCable-Uneducated. Should not be allowed out in public. Hope this isn’t aired in other countries makes me ashamed to be English #angrywhiteandproud

@JTegz –I’d like apologise on the behalf of white people prior to the showing of ‘Angry, White and Proud’.
@pjwhiteside70 –Morning troops, white angry and proud yes I am,yes we are at war with Islam. Just look what’s happening around the world
@MichaelSD1993-Angry, white and proud it’s shocking how bias the media is, why isn’t there a angry, radical Muslim and proud programme?
That’s just a few of the viewer’s feedback. I think it’s fair to say that the majority of the British public condemn such racist movements. And behalf of the British Muslims who are sane we also condemn such racist movements who preach Islam in the most distorted way ever. No we do not want to take over Britain. We like the fact that we have a multicultural society. Living in Britain all my life I can honestly proudly say the British community is the most tolerable and diverse community oppose to other European countries. Sure, there are a few bad eggs going out of their way to hurt members of the British Pakistani Muslim community, and there are also a few bad eggs going out of their way to hurt members of the British community. These individuals who stir trouble and preach hate do not represent the rest of us. We will not be generalised and put in the same box as those idiots.
Perhaps the media needs to refresh itself. Instead of showing racist and radical movements, why not show members of the British public getting along? Perhaps the media is the main stirrer in this equation too. I have seen so many images on the net of a British Pakistani Muslim man helping an elderly British person with her shopping bags. I have seen many images online, of a British man holding an umbrella above a British Pakistani Muslim who is praying on the ground to protect him from the rain. Why does the media never produce documentaries about this beautiful diversity and solidarity we have instead?
