Racism

MacDoctor has a post (of his usual high quality!) regarding the Paul Henry affair.

We are all well used to the blind eye turned to horribly ugly racism from people of the pigmented persuasion while a laser beam searches for the faintest hint of a racist remark in the paleface. I have been called a racist, purely on the grounds that I am a white South African (actually I am British, but let’s not spoil the story). The spectacular hypocrisy of that racist remark apparently escaped my accuser. “reverse” racism is, of course, nothing of the kind. It is simply racism.

He’s right of course, and I have my own stories on that account but they’re for another day.

Anyway, that comment reminded me of this cartoon, which I saw during my downtime and have been meaning to post for some time.
