Funny that even after he admitted to making the story up he was still hailed by some as some kind of hero

Porridge- Jim "Jock" McLaren is played by Tony Osoba. McLaren, who claims to have been adopted, is a black man from Greenock, Scotland. This led to a string of racist abuse when he first arrived at Slade Prison. Fletcher, in reference to his Scottish upbringing, frequently calls him "Jock". Upon arrival, he was an angry young man, and it was left up to Fletcher to calm him down and to curb the abuse he received. A keen football player, he was soon turning out every Saturday afternoon for the inter-wing football matches. He supports Greenock Morton.

despite my age, i dont see colour. I was brought up amongst italians, maltese, irish, indians coloured south africans, english and bangladeshi. I loved them all and learned a lot from their cuisine and kindness. I grew up in the sixties and seventies (and was even young enough to enjoy the eighties), so i learned alongside so many others that humour is humour, a joke is a joke and it is no more than that. "Poking" fun is age old and does not stifle loyalties nor love. Banter is something i would not like to do without and, i think, nor would my many friends

The Black And White Minstrel Show,in colour? My father objected to the extra cost of a Colour TV licence for repeats,carried it on for our dogs.Only Border Collies,Black Labs and Black and White Springers,the B & W licence was cheaper,my first day of freedom was a Tan and white boxer named Suzie.

Strange thing she used to leap out and grab the tails of out Fresian heffers,never thought she was racist but then never thought she would ever be considered as such,she never did this to a Jersey heffer.All these decades assuming dogs and Bulls were colour blind like myself in terms of race etc.

How wrong can one be? My dad had great BLACK friends in SA and Congo as did I all over the world.How many of these reformists ever met an African Black from Africa and how many were asked about racism? Absolutely NONE my guess,the ones I know think the comedies and show are little short of genius and an honest reflection of Social History,not demeaning,not derogatory.......if you get de meening man?
