Look Black In Anger

Blackfriars

Is it offensive to homeless people?

On my way to work the other morning, I saw two people sleeping rough at the South Bank entrance to Blackfriars station.

I say “rough”, they didn’t look like they were down and out. They had sleeping bags that looked brand new and nice backpacks that they were using as pillows. They looked more like tourists who’d decided to camp in the station instead of paying for an expensive London hotel.

I wonder what people who are homeless think of that? In fact, what do the homeless think of people who go camping?

I was talking about this in the office at Fix Radio. My friend Jon North summed it up best when he said, “To homeless people, camping must be the equivalent of blackface”.

Craic on!
