    Aren't songs free speech but in musicial form? If this guy was arrested, then all rappers need to be as well.

    This is the U.K. They don't have free speech anymore.

    Oh. Well. You asked if we considered it racist. I don't. But I'm not in the UK.

    I don't think its racist either and I imagine the guy will not be charged, but it's still scary to ponder that this could happen here. It seems there are a few who think that the right to "not be offended" trumps the first amendment. A lawyer's wet dream!

    It must be tough being a comic in England.

    No, it's not racist. Those 'offended' need to grow some skin.

    It's no more racist than when Trump advised that Obama "gets on the phone or gets off his basketball court or whatever he is doing at the time" and pressure OPEC to lower gas prices.

    Awfully damned silly.

    I thought the movie V for Vendetta was escapist fantasy, not prophecy.
