Finally, the highlight that's been needed in HK for so long, has taken centre stage. And if it's only in passing, then it still has been seen!

TVB (HK's only TV broadcaster now, after ATV went bankrupt and got shut down) went with the horrendous "brown face" depiction of Filipina helpers. "Brown face" is a nasty, bigoted take on "black face", directly about brown-skin ethnicities, or non-Chinese ethnicities. Ugh.

The actress apologised for her role in the offensive drama where this hideousness was portrayed, but TVB has not. Shame on TVB!
