Nick Ferrari tried to argue that he is a ‘person of colour’ during a heated phone-in this morning.
The LBC presenter, who said he regularly gets asked where he is from due to his funny name (he was born in Sidcup), took a call from PhD candidate Mike Bankole, who is currently conducting research on race, racism and political representation.
During the chat, Nick said: “I am of colour of course because I am white. What am I, if I’m not a person of colour? What is white then?” Mike responded with “you are a white man Nick, you are not a person of colour”.
The term ‘person of colour’ is mostly used to describe racial minorities, which does not include white people.
After the live conversation, Mike said: “Nick Ferrari just tried to convince me that, as a white man, he is person of colour. How’s your morning going?”
