"We've got a BROWN woman to defend him, so he CAN'T be racist":


Apprentice star Saira Khan says it is 'absurd' to call Lord Sugar a racist over his Senegal footballers tweet - he is just 'of a generation that has not quite got to grips with what is acceptable'

Of course he isn't racist but noone is allowed to make a clumsy joke anymore. Too many people looking for something to be offended about. Can't just call him a silly old fool and move on. It needs to be made bigger.

That old lie :roll:

I know lots of people in the 60-90 age group, only three of whom find that sort of "joke" acceptable. I wonder if he went to Luton Grammar? The three old casual racists* I know all did.



*And casual sexists. And nowhere near as erudite, witty or smart as they think they are - just like Lord Scrotum**


**Well done Karlt. I'll never be able to stop calling him that now :lol:

It's pathetic. I'm not sure why people think it's a good defence. It just kind of suggests they're too thick to adapt to social changes.

It's up there with racists claiming they were only being racist because they were drunk...because having too many pints always turns people into racists...

"Oh, he's of that generation...".

Bollocks. As was often pointed out, David Bowie was born earlier than professional old fart Len Goodman.

Sugar's joke doesn't make a lot of sense as its not even a widely used stereotype of Francophone Africans like Nigerians being the butt of email fraudsters jokes.
Not all that clear as to your meaning, but Nigeria isn't Francophone.

No. Would he have thought it funny with a picture of a white football team? No. So it's racist.
