Have you watched the show or just looked at edited versions on tv and in the paper. The whole of this is not racism and it is so tiring to here it all the time. It is a clash of 2 very different classes. Shilpa from a middle class upbringing and Jade a very working class upbringing. Opinions were thrown from both sides. Shilpa felt she was above Jade and found her brash personality something she had never had to deal with before as she is treated with nothing but respect in her country. Jade was made to feel inadequate by Shilpa and Jermine Jackson the moment she walked into the house. Jermaine was racist towards Jade by calling her "White Trash". Isn't this just as bad. The whole thing has gone mad and too many people are looking into this from the angle that because a white working class woman does not like an Asian woman then it has to be racism. For God sake this is totally wrong. We like people for who they are, not colour or race and what has happened here is a clash of class only. People see the word racism and straight away they hate before looking at the real facts. I have watched this from the beginning and I hate anyone who is racist, but Jade is not. Unfortunately she has not had the best start in life and has difficulty to express herself in a more controlled manner, using swearing and insults to get her point across. Shilpa is more subtle and can make someone feel less adequate to her by her attitude towards someone and her snobbish personality. Don't always believe everything you are told before seeking the truth.
