Anvar Khan, media whore

It is not compulsory for a white journalist to defend or attack views from minorities, but it is for me. I almost do it as a favour. The liberal, left-leaning media are so terrified of causing offence to any minority that they look to a person of colour to do their arguing for them.

When controversial subjects erupt, regarding Shabina Begum’s so-called right to wear the jilbab at school or the preponderance of ham sandwiches at council meetings, whatever, the white media turn tactician, and, in order to deflect any potential criticism, recruit brown faces. That’s where I come in.

That was journalist Anvar Khan, pictured here, in the Media Guardian on Monday. This is Anvar Khan on her website explaining her TV experience:

As a self-confessed media whore, I am on call 24/7 to give my views on anything from why men cheat to why women stop having sex with their husbands. If I don’t have an opinion I’ll find one.

The very tempting offer of an extra hundred quid or so and a few minutes in front of a camera are enough for me to put away my hoover and abandon more heavyweight projects, like my latest lover.

I can’t quite put my finger on what’s wrong here…

    From: Mrs.Rose Kone
    Abidjan Cote D’Ivoire, West Africa.

    Dear beloved.

    I am Mrs.Rose Kone, from Ivory Coast. I am married to Chef Diarra who worked with our Embassy in France for nine years before he died in the year 2003.

    We were married for eleven years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days.

    Before his death we were both born again Christian. Since his death I decided not to remarry or get a child out side my matrimonial home which the Bible is against.When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of $2m, (Two Million united states dollars) only with a Bank here in Cote D lvoire.

    Presently this money is still in the custody of the Bank.
    Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next eight months due to cancer problem. Having known my condition I decided to donate this funds to a church, organization or good person that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein.

    I want a church,organization or good person that will use this funds for orphanages, widows and for other peoples that needs help and also propagating the word of God and to endeavour that the house of God is maintained.

    The Bible made us to understand that”Blessed is the hand that giveth” l took this decision because I don’t have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not Christians not even good at all because they are the one that responsible for the death of my husband in other to have all my late husband properties and I don’t want my husband’s efforts to be used by those that conspired for his death.

    This is why I am taking this decision, I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going, I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord. Exodus 14 VS 14 says that “the lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace”.

    I don’t need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health hence the presence of my husband’s relatives around me always.

    I don’t want them to know about This development and I know that With God all things are possible.As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the lawyer that will assist us in this project.

    I will also issue a letter of authorisation to the bank that will prove you the present beneficiary of this money also want you,church or the organisation to always pray for me because the lord is my only shephard.My happiness is that I lived a life of a worthy Christian.

    Whoever that Wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and Truth. Please always be prayerful all through your life.

    Contact me on the this email address; (rose_kone4@yahoo.fr) and any delay in your reply will give me room in souring another good person, church,organization for this same purpose.

    Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I Stated herein.

    Hoping to receive your response immediately.

    Thanks and Remain blessed in the Lord.
    I remain yours sister in Christ.
    Mrs.Rose Kone

    Sounds like a good deal to me.

  5. Vikrant Singh — on 29th March, 2006 at 11:35 am  

    Err Donnie Mr.Don see this and this lest we another Briton hustled off a significant amount of money.

  6. Vikrant Singh — on 29th March, 2006 at 11:36 am  

    Shall i bait her?

  7. Jay Singh — on 29th March, 2006 at 11:37 am  

    I really believe that – where do I send the money?

  8. Don — on 29th March, 2006 at 12:30 pm  

    But she is appealing to my Christian fellowship! Surely it is my duty.

  9. Jay Singh — on 29th March, 2006 at 12:32 pm  

    The best one I read was about a Nigerian astronaut that was stuck in space with the Russians and they couldnt get him down so they were appealing for funds for his family back in Lagos.

  10. Vikrant Singh — on 29th March, 2006 at 12:34 pm  

    lol… Don

    they recently gleaned 20000 quid off a chap in Cambridgeshire. Its estd theres one american sucker born every hour, an indian sucker born every day. dont want Britain to figure in that list!

  11. Vikrant Singh — on 29th March, 2006 at 12:35 pm  

    lol Jay do u have a copy?

  12. Jay Singh — on 29th March, 2006 at 12:45 pm  

    Nigerian Astronaut

    The best line in this is that you will be able to claim part of a re-entry bonus! The astronaut gets a bonus if he successfully completes re-entry!

  13. Jay Singh — on 29th March, 2006 at 12:49 pm  

    There have been occasional Progrez supply flights to keep him going since that time. He is in good humor, but wants to come home.

    That line cracks me up. So does this one:

    If we can obtain access to this money, we can place a down payment with the Russian Space Authorities for a Soyuz return flight to bring him back to Earth.

    Down payment on a space flight! It’s inspired.

  14. Jai — on 29th March, 2006 at 12:52 pm  

    It’s amazing how creative some of these people are. They should be working on “The Daily Show” with Jon Stewart.

  15. Vikrant Singh — on 29th March, 2006 at 12:57 pm  

    Oh f*** stranded for 14 years… seriously how thick can one get. Infront of THAT even the one above seems very believeable! Thanks fer da laughs mate!

  16. Jai — on 29th March, 2006 at 12:59 pm  

    I reckon we should all (hypothetically) tell them we agree to cough up the cash, but that we’re going to insist on paying them only in rupees.

  17. Vikrant Singh — on 29th March, 2006 at 1:02 pm  

    Well… Jai, Jay try http://www.419eater.com for more laughs!

  18. Nindy — on 29th March, 2006 at 2:40 pm  

    Well, Anvar Khan is brown, a journalist, has an opinion or two – fair play to her.

    She is only taking advantage of the ubiquitious PCness of everything!

    People are too scared to write good honest journalism me thinks in case they are branded as a David Irving.

    Perish the thought.

  19. V — on 29th March, 2006 at 3:09 pm  

    Write honest stuff on here and you get banned by the shills who run this site. Sunny is a joke

  20. Don — on 29th March, 2006 at 3:12 pm  

    V

    Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.

  21. v — on 29th March, 2006 at 3:37 pm  

    got any other cliches I’ve heard a zillion times you want to enterain me with don?

  23. contrarymary — on 29th March, 2006 at 3:43 pm  

    she’s a shameless rent-a-gob. and says so herself. so what she’s said about ‘whitey’ journalists is hollow as, as she’ll say or do whatever she needs to get her lovely gob on screen/in print.

    I read that Guardian piece and thought there are some interesting points here, but they were soon forgotten as the irritation with rentagob’s obsession with herself took over. I felt grubby after reading it, and being taken in by her comments – she would argue that the sky is green if you paid her. she says so herself on her awful website. rant over.

  24. El Cid — on 29th March, 2006 at 4:25 pm  

    you felt grubby?
    hmm, still mulling whether I was taken in. not sure.
    rubbish comment over, it’s back to work

  25. Rohin — on 29th March, 2006 at 5:09 pm  

    Her picture traumatises me.

  26. Jay Singh — on 29th March, 2006 at 5:15 pm  

    If you are so easily traumatised look away now.

    This is from her website, some of the chapter names of her book Pretty Wild (The Most Honest Diary About Men, Women And Sex You Will Ever Read) by Anvar Khan, at £9.99. Available from Black and White Publishing

  29. Jay Singh — on 29th March, 2006 at 5:30 pm  

    Vikrant

    You can get a copy for two quid something on Amazon.

  30. Jai — on 29th March, 2006 at 5:31 pm  

    =>”I wanna read this book! The chapter title about anal made me laugh though. Besharam larki.”

    I guess she’s not interested in an arranged marriage to a nice Asian boy, then…..Imagine what her biodata would look like……Not to mention the conversations between the respective parents…..

    “So, what is your daughter like ? We have a well-behaved son of marrigeable age.”

    “Bhai saab, our beti is a writer and has her own website. Here is the URL. I don’t know what’s on it but apparently you can learn all about her there.”

  31. Vikrant — on 29th March, 2006 at 5:32 pm  

    You can get a copy for two quid something on Amazon.

    Unlike you i dont have the luxury of my own credit card.

  32. Vikrant — on 29th March, 2006 at 5:35 pm  

    Yikes it IS for £2.55 at Amazon UK…. no i’m really interested even if my brain cells are gonna curse me for it afterwards.

  33. Vikrant — on 29th March, 2006 at 5:36 pm  

    err… it should be “now i’m really…..”

  34. Jai — on 29th March, 2006 at 5:37 pm  

    Why are the automated google ads on this thread setting to “Beautiful Sikh Singles” and “Sikh faces” ?!

    Surreal.

  35. Vikrant — on 29th March, 2006 at 5:39 pm  

    Automated Google Ads == Waste of money. Funnily i keep getting an add on Muslim singles everytime i visit JihadWatch.

  36. contrarymary — on 29th March, 2006 at 5:41 pm  

    vikrant – in the spirit of stingy asianness, perhaps you could share your findings on her book with us all… if you can pull apart the pages when you’ve finished :-)

  37. Nindy — on 29th March, 2006 at 5:41 pm  

    hmmm, yeah, on second thoughts…

    the lady is a t _ _ _ p

    fill in the blanks crooners.

  38. Jai — on 29th March, 2006 at 5:42 pm  

    I’m just wondering what the hell jilbabs, media whores, and those chapter titles Jay Singh listed have to do with Sikh singles websites…..

  39. Rohin — on 29th March, 2006 at 5:47 pm  

    I have genuinely how I should conduct myself at an orgy, if I happen upon one at any time. Or perhaps I should say if I come across one.

    Up the ass on a one night stand, what a hussey. Now being Asian isn’t an advantage, because when an Asian male calls an Asian female a hussey, people say oooh you’re so judgmental, you just want a typical housewife sati savitri type, god how archaic! When actually I’m just calling a spade a spade, irrespective of my ethnicity. And okay, I’m being judgmental too but that’s what makes me a celebrated cock.

    Celebrated cock…looks like we’re back to the orgy. Seriously, how can I find an orgy? There are/were plenty at uni, but they were almost always entirely made up of rugby boys. If someone can find a progressive British Asian orgy, I’m more than willy to do some investigative journalism.

    I can’t stop punning, sorry.

  40. Jai — on 29th March, 2006 at 5:47 pm  

    To each his (or her) own, and you reap what you sow etc, but Ms Khan really does sound like the textbook gone-completely-off-the-rails-and-off-the-edge-of-the-cliff Asian girl doesn’t she.

    I’m sure she’s great company and she sounds quite fun, but in terms of the long-term impact on herself and her life, I hope she knows what she’s doing. If so, then fine.

  41. Rohin — on 29th March, 2006 at 5:48 pm  

    *I have genuinely WONDERED how I should…

  42. Jai — on 29th March, 2006 at 5:51 pm  

    Rohin,

    I was under the impression that 2nd-generation Asian medics here in the UK were a pretty wild bunch anyway (based on people I’ve met), I’m surprised you’re having trouble coming across those types. Unless they’ve been keeping quiet about their, er, unconventional extracurricular activities.

  43. Nindy — on 29th March, 2006 at 5:56 pm  

    hmmm, yeah, on third thoughts…

    modern, asian, likes sex, savvy.

    larki khoobshoorat hai nah.

  44. Vikrant Singh — on 29th March, 2006 at 6:21 pm  

    Contrarymary : atleast i dont have a mortgage on my house nor do I need loan consolidation and my parents can well afford a decent univ education for me and my bank account doesnt read in red. Atleast we Asians dont drink away our fortunes!

  45. Vikrant Singh — on 29th March, 2006 at 6:22 pm  

    Rohin in an orgy… wee that would be a sight.

  46. Jay Singh — on 29th March, 2006 at 6:43 pm  

    If someone can find a progressive British Asian orgy, I’m more than willy to do some investigative journalism.

    Whats a progressive British Desi Orgy? With equal representatives of Hindu, Sikh and Muslims, and the men have to do homo stuff too? To show how progressive they are? In a non sexist way? :-)

  47. Vikrant Singh — on 29th March, 2006 at 6:45 pm  

    Well if thats being progressive i’ll be your homophobic sexist Rajput anyday.

  48. Jay Singh — on 29th March, 2006 at 6:48 pm  

    I am going to get her book from Amazon.

    I wanna know the answer to the question ‘Anal Sex Virgins – Should You Take It Up The Ass On A One Night Stand?’

  49. Rohin — on 29th March, 2006 at 7:01 pm  

    Vikrant, that would be a sight? Ew, why do you see it?

    I don’t know what a progressive British Asian orgy is Jay! I just said that so it fit the PP remit and I could tell my girlfriend it was ‘work’.

    Jay, being a first generation semi-Asian British medic, I’m thoroughly conservative and dignified. But you’re right, they are a wild bunch. Medics in general are. In fact my medical school is famous for being the most extreme. Every RAG week they do this unspeakably fucked up event. I have never participated, primarily because a) I had a gf before I started uni b) I do not wish to be penetrated and c) I don’t enjoy public nudity and bodily fluids. I shouldn’t even be telling you about it, it’s a well-kept secret. But rest assured, the Asians are as wild as anyone else. Had I actually wanted an orgy, I’m spoilt for choice at medschool.

    Nindy I don’t know if you can get ‘savvy’ from all that. Modern, sure. Asian – of course. Likes sex, clearly. Savvy?

  50. Don — on 29th March, 2006 at 7:11 pm  

    Jay,

    ‘I wanna know the answer to the question ‘Anal Sex Virgins – Should You Take It Up The Ass On A One Night Stand?’

    Only if you’re sure he’ll respect you in the morning.

  51. Rohin — on 29th March, 2006 at 7:18 pm  

    You know, thinking of young British Asians with their sex lives in the public eye made me think of another, um, valued member of society, Nirpal Singh Dhaliwal.

  52. Jay Singh — on 29th March, 2006 at 7:24 pm  

    LoL @ Don

  53. Jai — on 29th March, 2006 at 7:34 pm  

    Rohin,

    =>, being a first generation semi-Asian British medic, I’m thoroughly conservative and dignified. But you’re right, they are a wild bunch. Medics in general are…..But rest assured, the Asians are as wild as anyone else. ”

    Agreed about the Asians and it applies to female desi medics too, who I’ve sometimes found to go to the greatest extremes in their behaviour in these matters compared to other Asians. Rohin, why do you think this is ?

    =>”I’m thoroughly conservative and dignified.”

    Actually those photos from Vegas you posted yesterday do make you look very much like the archetypal “good Indian boy”. You’ve even got the neat side parting an’ everything ;) .

    As for me, I can’t even talk to a young woman at an Asian get-together (dinner party, formal function etc) without her parents getting paranoid that their darling daughter’s going to jump into bed with me by the end of the night, even if all I’m doing is chatting very politely. *Shakes head wearily*

  54. Jai — on 29th March, 2006 at 7:35 pm  

    Jay Singh,

    =>”LoL @ Don”

    You won’t be laughing when you roll over and see the hairy gorilla with a hangover lying next to you in the morning, mate…..

  55. raz — on 29th March, 2006 at 7:42 pm  

    C’mon guys, show a little discretion. Young Vikrant is impressionable, you know :)

  56. Rohin — on 29th March, 2006 at 8:14 pm  

    Ooh that’s a bit libellous raz.

    I AM a good Indian boy Jai. The drugs, criminal record and women (both of those ended a long time ago) were all lies, lies!

    Why do I think Asian medics are so nuts? Hmm…I suppose it’s something to do with wanting to prove yourself in a competitive vocation. A lot of the Asians, especially the girls, do have a bit of a chip on their collective shoulders. Some of the things I hear about girls I’ve known for ages still shocks me. Then there’s the whole sheltered upbringing thing, which is without doubt a big factor – boys and girls.

    Thankfully St. George’s is free of the worst aspect of Asians at uni – the rudeboys. Ironically the rudeboys and rudegirls have nothing on their apparently ‘regular’ desi colleagues when it comes to loose morals. It’s way harder to get laid at GKT (King’s), which is jam-packed with brown rudies.

  57. Vikrant — on 29th March, 2006 at 8:49 pm  

    Young…yes. Impressionable… in yer dreams.

  58. Sid D H Arthur — on 29th March, 2006 at 9:09 pm  

    Go Anvar Khan. An Asian grrrl writing intelligently about identity and race politics for work and the merits and demerits of anal sex for play. Or is it the other way round? Whatever. More power and all that.

  59. Vikrant — on 29th March, 2006 at 9:24 pm  

    Wondering what Mustafa would say…

  60. Rohin — on 29th March, 2006 at 10:07 pm  

    Yeah where is that Mustafa?

    Seriously Al-Hack, why that picture? It’s still disturbing me. I have been to her site now, there were others there – this one is freaky. Her face is the look a girl has when they wake up in the morning and see a guy they met last night next to them and realise: “Oh my god, you took my up the ass, when I was an anal sex virgin”

  61. raz — on 29th March, 2006 at 11:29 pm  

    My first ever deleted post on PP – and it wasn’t even about India-Pakistan :)

  62. Vikrant — on 29th March, 2006 at 11:36 pm  

    Raz check my lastest post on India Pakistan at my blog. All flamebaiting tolerated (Cheap gimmick to inspire comments though)

  63. Jai — on 30th March, 2006 at 4:27 pm  

    Rohin,

    re: the second paragraph in your post #56.

    I think you’ve summarised the major causes pretty well, especially the point about sheltered upbringings etc (which results in a lot of randy people who don’t have a clue what to do, but think they “should” be doing certain things, and you basically end up with the blind-leading-the-blind).

    Something else which I think is a factor — and this is obviously not aimed at you personally, but I’m sure you’ll understand where I’m coming from here — is that Medicine can be a very ego-driven profession, especially for Asians. So you end up with people who are normally very intelligent but engage in misguided, self-destructive activities for egotistical reasons (the kick of rebelliousness, showing off about being “unconventional” etc), yet have difficulty admitting that they’ve been going down the wrong path (and have probably been convincing their peer circle to do so too).

    You basically end up with the equivalent of lots of Paris Hiltons who happen to also have medical degrees.

    =>”Some of the things I hear about girls I’ve known for ages still shocks me.”

    I know people like that too — family friends etc. It is shocking and somewhat sad too when you think about the path some people have taken and the impact it’s had on their lives and (especially) their personalities. Considering that I’m 32 and am therefore talking about people approximately the same age as me, I’m referring to women who have gone off the rails for a very long time if they haven’t been lucky enough to find “Mr Right” at a suitable point.

    The effect can be quite tragic, even if their occupation (and the associated “baseline” self-esteem) provides some kind of a safety-net financially, professionally, and with regards to status.

    its kind of like you’re being judgemental about a woman’s behavior and then turning around and saying you’re concerned about her well-being. i’m sure constant whoring takes a toll on a person, but its just not nice to wish it on a person

  67. Don — on 1st April, 2006 at 12:47 am  

    Actually, the term ‘whore’ as in ‘media whore’ has a specific fully understood meaning. The term ‘whore’ used otherwise is objectionable.

  68. Sunny — on 1st April, 2006 at 2:36 am  

    We’re just taking the piss as a laugh… being a media whore is very diff to being a whore. Hell, I’m a media whore too!

  69. Don — on 1st April, 2006 at 11:34 am  

    Probably over-reacted. :)
