TL;DR news on Jim Davidson Ashley Banjo interview at August 28, 2023
Last year, Banjo and his dance group Diversity performed an emotional routine inspired by the murder of George Floyd at the hands of police officer Derek Chauvin. Davidson tried to defend his video, insisting not to acknowledge the systemic element of police brutality against the Black community. "You did a dance about a terrible crime, but ignored all the other crimes that are committed by Black people cause even to report it seems racist," Davidson said. His interviewee then removed his microphone, eager to leave. After being told to "stick to dancing", Banjo followed Davidson to try and resume their conversation. "I am disappointed because it was an opportunity for us to sit and really engage in a discussion," Banjo then told the camera.
