mock the week

This television program from the BBC provides a good example of discriminatory humour. For the large part the panel is comprised of white males.

The playlist has two random samples, there are more examples here

Examples to look for

- sexism
- child molestation
- homophobia
- racism
- ageism
- diability discrimination
etc etc

I estimate over 50% of the material is vilification against one minority group or another.

I'm surprised that the BBC is able to get this material past the censorship laws.

Its also enlightening to read the comments on youtube reaffirming the discrimination.
