Shorties 53: Black Sheep Documenteers: The Documentary Podcast

    • TV & Film

Week two of February shorties and Eldridge and Bob thought maybe it’s time to get really really f*****g sad. Unfortunately, Chris Farley is nowhere to be found in this one. A 10 year old Nigerian boy is stabbed in London and a scared Nigerian family move to Essex to escape the hub-bub of big city drama. Of course we’re talking England outside of London so what is this Nigerian teenager seeing? Whiteys. Whiteys and their janky faces. Cornelius can only take two much of the racism until he decides to join up with those who hate him for the color of his skin. Eldridge and Bob discuss the Ed Perkins documentary short he made for the Guardian called “Black Sheep”. (Hence the Chris Farley reference.) Layers and layers of sad. Even the Pillsbury Dough Boy is crying. Cry laughing actually. That thing is f*****g scary now that I think about it. But not scarier than racism.
