Last night's Newsnight led with the Rachel Dolezal story (American white woman pretending to be black).
Yes, led with it.
Newsnight editor Ian Katz anticipated what some people's reaction might be:
It was a somewhat surreal discussion, with the U.S. professor (Laurie Shrage) risking being taken for Godfrey Elfwick in a wig by saying that race is a social construct and not biological, before clarifying matters when challenged: "We're born with certain pigment but how we understand the meaning of that pigment changes from social setting to social setting".
The other studio guests were novelist and Guardian writer Dreda Say Mitchell and Guardian reporter Steven Thrasher.
Oh, and Ken Livingstone's old pal (and former Respect candidate) Lee Jasper was one of the 'talking heads' in the preceding report.
Are you glad you missed it?
