‘A new BBC drama series set in London depicts a “dystopian” alternate society where blacks are slavemasters and whites are slaves.
The show, which features controversial ‘woke’ rapper Stormzy, is called Noughts & Crosses and is based on a series of novels by Malorie Blackman.
The plot showcases “an alternative history in which African people had gained a technological and organisational advantage over the European people, rather than the other way around.”
In the narrative, slavery has been legally abolished but segregation remains in place, with crosses (dark-skinned people) being forbidden from having romantic relationships with noughts (lighter-skinned people).
White characters are subservient to and serve black characters, white characters have their names mispronounced and band aids are all brown colored.’
