Nazir Afzal thrown as Fiona Bruce calls on him first to answer question about racism

On BBC's Question Time host Fiona Bruce was questioned after calling on Nazir Afzal first to answer a question about racism.

Bruce turned to Mr Afzal and asked him to answer first which prompted him to say "The brown person will answer first".

The presenter then asked him: "Nazir, so do you think that was wrong of me to come to you first?" to which Mr Afzal replied: "I think so".

Mr Afzal later tweeted: “I have no criticism of Fiona Bruce. Racism is something which everyone should have a view on, not just minorities.”
