Wait.

So the person this so-called racial slur was directed at took no offence whatsoever....


So other people did it on his behalf.


White Knights.
Errrr.... wait.....that's racist too.

I saw this in the news yesterday but decided not to post on the topic to preserve Australian sensibilities.

Most unlike Gordon bray, one would think. But then, he's allowed to be laddish, in the Australian sense, from time to time, too. Allegedly.

The people who took offence did so on their own behalf. It's nonsence to say it was on behalf of the person it was directed at.

Pretty stupid thing to say but seems to have blown over fairly quickly.

Drives me mad when journos use Twitter quotes from some random off the internet to try and show us the atmosphere of rage around an incident. It's a plum off Twitter.

Of course any mention of gollywogs is seen as racist, but it is a fairly accurate description of the haircut.
