Radio Presenter suspended for saying ‘All Lives Matter’

A radio presenter who questioned the issue of “white privilege” in relation to the Black Lives Matter protests has been suspended for his comments.

Manx Radio, which is the Isle of Man radio station, took Stu Peters off air after Wednesday’s programme in which a black caller challenged him for writing “all lives matter” in an online forum.

During the debate he said: “I’ve had no more privilege in my life than you have. I’m a white man, you’re a black man.”

Manx Radio said it had referred the issue to the Communications Commission for the Island.

Mr Peters declined to comment when contacted by the BBC.

Manx Radio’s managing director Chris Sully said:

“Stu Peters will not be presenting the Late Show whilst an investigation takes place.

We await [the Commission’s] guidance on any potential breach of the Broadcast Code.

Manx Radio does not condone racism in any form amongst its staff.

We are actively working with the caller involved to develop some ideas to debate the issues involved.”

The Isle of Man’s Communications Commission confirmed it was “investigating comments made” on the programme.

The phrase “all lives matter” is seen by some as perfectly legitimate but critics argue it undermines the importance of the Black Lives Matter campaign.
