Description

Comedian Sir Lenny Henry has labeled the BBC an “oppressive institution” and “very, very white”, urging it to change and diversify. The BAFTA winning founder of Comic Relief also said black actors who do progress in the media and show business stop “being black” once they find success. He singled out the Hollywood star of the Men in Black film franchise, Will Smith. “If a movie makes more than a hundred dollars, some black people stop being black – they ­become Will Smith,” Mr. Henry told the Sunday People.
