    I thankfully don't have time to watch stuff like this. However, are you referring to the Labour MP, Naz Shah? She was indeed suspended and rightly so.

    The slave trade around the world is indeed a pressing issue. But it isn't related to just one race. As a result, singling out one particular race and suggesting that that race as a whole is responsible for the slave trade is indeed racist and should not be acceptable in our society. If anti-racism is what you call political correctness, then bring it on.
