First some background. Residents of a small village are objecting to an application for a shop to change it's planning use to "hot food outlet". The objections are the additional traffic, lack of parking, litter etc. The shop owner has only had one offer to purchase it, from someone who runs a Chinese takeaway in a nearby village. After interviewing the residents the local radio presenter interviewed the man who wants to open the takeaway - one of her first questions was "do you think this is down to racism). The man seemed totally taken aback by such a question and just said no. Up until that point no-one had mentioned racism, or made any comment about the fact it was a Chinese takeaway. Now AIBU to be annoyed that the radio presenter was trying to introduce the subject of racism when it had not previously reared its ugly head.
