The comments thread on the XYZ Facebook page has been very pleasing over the last couple of days in response to a story about a black rugby player who dared to mention race in a light-hearted manner. It is a disgrace that anybody should ever have to apologise for telling a joke, and XYZ readers have made their disgust at the PC brigade clear.
We could not resist the urge however, both here and in the original article, to point out the double standard, and neither could several XYZ readers. This one put it best:
“Good thing he isn’t a poor (and I mean that in the economic sense) white thirteen year old girl.”
XYZ Quote of the Day.
