A mural intended to pay tribute to businesses who have worked through the pandemic has been criticised for only portraying white people.

Driffield Town Council said the artwork, installed on Middle Street North, depicts "well-known personalities" who work or own businesses in the town centre and was in tribute to those "ravaged by the pandemic".

However, some residents took to social media to point out it failed to show any people from ethnically diverse backgrounds or anyone with a disability.

People moaning only white people in this mural.

Maybe it's mainly only white people that live at this gaff - it's population is only 13000.

If a mural was done in say Newham or Hackney would white people be upset if those murals only showed non white people?

If a small town was all white would that be in some way wrong?

I'm sure there are numerous small towns across Africa that are all black. Are they doing something wrong? Are they lacking 'diversity'?

Bit of a tough one for the  progressitards that pollute this forum. They know their fellow travellers are going too far here but lack the courage to say so.

Upshot is a wide swerve given to any thread like this.

council must have a screw loose  ...would have been easy to add a 'brown face'  even if it was a white guy with a heavy suntan  , that;s if all the people were white businessmen/women that is .

I suspect the person behind this mural could well be racist and/or trying to stir up trouble  ..it's a bit odd otherwise 

just saying

Newham would be in trouble is there were no white faces as  white people live in the borough ...it's not exclusively black

Aah, the old getting offended by myself making up a scenario that doesn't actually exist.

no one should be bothered about it reynold as it is a lot of nonsense over  not a lot  but you would think the people in charge of the mural might display some common sense   ...some people of  minorities and some white people will get offended  and that cant be good for business surely ?

“You can please some of the people all of the time, you can please all of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time”.”

Truth is there are some who will never be pleased.
Whatever you put up it will be wrong. You could have a smattering of blacks, and then there wont be enough yellows, you put up a few yellows and there arnt enough reds (can you cay yellow and red? You can say black and white so I assume so)
Then there wont be enough quadriplegics, dwarves are transvestites.....

It reminds me of a recent Disney film release for kids that had a token puff in it who mentions he is gay.
But the gays wernt happy about the detail and pumped their gums over the fact he had to me descriptive.
Why?
Does that mean all other films for kids have to go into detail about how daddy takes mummy up the arse?

saddo ... homogenous societies tend to be very insular in personality...you normally find them at either extreme ...intolerant people

the best societies in this country i feel are where you have a 90 per cent white british and then a 10 mix of other ethnics /nationalities ...just not too many and not condensed ethnic areas either ...they themselves are insular

Not sure how you distinguish between the Shakespearean troupe totally made up by Women of colour ,which is apparently enlightened ,cool and clever and loved by the academics and luvvies or this mural of these vain twats whose only usefulness is to "offend" a few of the cherubs on here.
