danydandan Posted September 23, 2018 #1 Share Posted September 23, 2018 My last attempt at starting a thread about this show was closed. Perhaps it can across as discriminatory? The History Channel is hosting a show called Why does everyone hate the English, in the ads for the show, it shows a man being chased by a number of other men. The lone runner is holding an English flag, while the chasers are holding, Irish, German, French, Scottish and Welsh flags. Being Irish I can understand the premise of the show. However if a show called why everyone hates the Irish or Germans were being made I can certainly see people blowing their tops over it. Now as a deflection from the obvious discriminatory topic of said show, there are comedians hosting it and Andy Murray (he isn't funny so can't be a comedian). My initial thoughts were if I was English would I find it offensive or would I like to see what and why our history has effected other Countries? So, if any Englishmen or Englishwomen are reading this do you find the premise of the show offensive. My personal opinion its meant to be taken as lightly, hence the comedians, and it's a good opportunity to see what others may think of the English. 1 2 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
