What a cock. Our previous two GGs were a woman who was ethnically Chinese and born in HK and a Haitian woman. I never heard once that anybody thought this was wrong, strange or anything. What criticism there was was that they were a bit lightweight (both were TV presenters/personalities).

I get that TV presenters of his ilk are supposed to say controversial things, but there's a line, right?

Racism is a hard line and that was racist. I can't imagine him making a similar comment about any of the non-Caucasian members of the All Blacks.

Wasn't someone fired from representing us as some kind of rugby ambassador for the utter shit he was spewing? The first one was referring to non-white members of the Crusaders as "darkies" and claiming they had a quota and for that one he refused to step down and no one really tried to make him, but then he said something else disgustingly victim blame-y about rape and everyone was like "AND YOU'RE DONE."

(This also marked my realisation that my dad is racist. He thought people were too sensitive over the "darkies" comment and that it wasn't really an offensive word. I was stunned enough to just blurt out, "Since when?")
