Professor Green discusses meeting Britain First in new documentary White Working Class Men
Professor Green has admitted to losing his cool when attending the Britain First march for his new documentary.
Appearing on Good Morning Britain today to discuss his two-part series, Working Class White Men, rapper Professor Green explained how the documentary explores the obstacles men from poor backgrounds face in Britain, and how this has led to discrimination against immigrants.
In order to get to the root of this stigma, Pro Green decided to speak to members of far-right political party Britain First at one of their protest marches.
Here he encounter the group’s deputy leader, Jayda Fransen. Pro Green told hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid: “The hatred she incites… She talks about it being a peaceful march, but the racial slurs and the things they were singing, it was disgusting.”
The filmmaker confessed it was difficult to maintain a level head when interviewing certain people for the series.
“It was difficult,” he said. “Christian, the director, said to me, ‘Remember the question is why, it’s always why, don’t show your hand too early’ – because it would be really easy for me to jump down [these people’s] necks with my thoughts and opinions.
“What they think is very conflicting with my own opinions. But to get to the bottom of why someone feels like that, they have to be given space.
“However, I actually went on to get into quite a heavy situation at the Britain’s First march when I spoke to Jayda….”
Working Class White Men airs tonight (Tuesday) at 10pm on Channel 4.
