daily (hate) mail

We all know the Mail is a racist rag, so perhaps I shouldn't be surprised that they refer to an apparently mixed-race girl as "woolly haired" (scroll down to the caption of the second photo). But I am, a bit.

Ouch.

Also this fromHugh Muir:
And then this from yesterday's Evening Standard. "If Barack Obama wins tomorrow's election, it will not be the first time Sarah Palin has come second to a coloured person. In 1984, she won the Miss Wasilla beauty contest and then went through to the Miss Alaska pageant. However, on that occasion she was beaten by Maryline Blackburn, who has a darker complexion than Obama." London. 2008.


Those uppity octaroons, eh?

Bloody hell. I have to correct my 8 year other brother for saying 'coloured' but I'd expect a half decent paper not even to think twice about using it :-s
