Anita Rani stunned by racial slur at work

OHMYGOSSIP — Anita Rani was stunned when a “liberal” colleague called her “the P word”.
The ‘Countryfile’ presenter was left speechless when someone at work used the racial slur against her and though they were “probably” joking, she doesn’t think it’s an acceptable way to speak.
She said: “There was a moment when someone in a work environment called me the P-word and I just didn’t react. Afterwards, I thought, ‘Who the f*** am I? What has happened in my life where I just allow that to happen?’ ”
Describing the person as a “so-called educated, well-travelled, liberal TV types” who was “probably” joking, she added to You magazine: “But it wasn’t a joke. Is it ever a joke? There’s a generation of us who have grown up here. We are British. We come with our stories and we want to say, ‘Listen to who we are. We don’t want to have to hide away any more.’ It’s liberating.”
The 43-year-old presenter also spoke of how she turned to self harm in a bid to gain “control” in her life and hopes opening up about her teenage ordeal in her memoir ‘The Right Sort Of Girl’ will help other people.
She said: “The only time I felt I gained some control over my life and some kind of release, felt something, was in those moments when I’d sit in my room and cut myself and watch the blood slowly appear from under my skin.
“I found it both terrifying and satisfying. I felt alive and present and, in those moments, thought about nothing else.
“Nothing. I just focused on the pain and the blood and it was a sweet relief from the rest of my life. I don’t think people expect someone on the telly to have gone through something like that.
“I went through it, so let me share that to make it easier for other people. I wrote it for the 16-year-old me sitting up in Bradford thinking, ‘I don’t know what the hell is going on.’ ”
