November 1, 2007 at 5:46 AM (PT)
The BBC has apologized for a remark by BBC RADIO 2 6-7:30a morning host SARAH KENNEDY in which she said she almost hit a pedestrian in the dark because he was black. While discussing the need for children to wear easily visible clothes while walking to and from school, KENNEDY added, "You know what happened to me yesterday. It was this black guy. It's lucky he opened his mouth to yawn or do something and I saw him. He was wearing a black hat, black clothes and he was just invisible."
In a statement issued by the station, the BBC apologized for the comment and said that it had spoken to KENNEDY about the problem.
