I assume you are calling him racist because he sang a song that was originally performed by the Jacksons. And I also assume that everyone who dances to Gangnam Style is racist, everyone who plays Hendrix on their guitar is racist, everyone who tries to play golf like Tiger is racist...

No, he is racist because he wore an afro wig. According to the moral majority, this constitutes racism- supposedly.

A 'racist' is someone who can recognise traits in others that identify then as belonging to a different race or ethnicity from the racist. That's all of us, although blind people may be less efficient in that. It doesn't mean that, even though we might identify others as being of a different race, that we think less of them than those of our own race. It's only when we denigrate others by suggesting their race is in some way inferior to our own that we should be castigated. Wearing an afro wig only helps to identify the person of interest and is not, in itself, 'racist'.

Please comment…...

According to some, we're all racist. I'm racist. You're racist. Time to rejoice in our racism, whatever that is.

Well said, OB!!

Isn't jafflemaker the only one posing the question about racism. Not sure a racist has been uncovered but certainly a troll.

I have to ask why someone cannot ask a question or make a comment without being called a troll? The real trolls are the one calling everyone else out just to get a reaction. Is calling someone a troll racist?

I wore a mullet wig to our Christmas party. I think I may be Boganist.

Jafflemaker, you seem to be fanning the flames of the media sensationalist bollocks tht every man hates. Get the sand out of your ******, stop acting like a **** and get a life ! Yours truly, A Scotsman....who has a life ! Ps, Andy Murray is many things(******* for one) but a racist, he is not.

I’ve tried seeing things from your point of view but I can’t get my head that far up my arse !!

Thanks Blindman. Well said.
