Yahoo News headline:
So what did she say that was so racist? Voula Papachristou posted on Twitter,
With so many Africans in Greece at least the West Nile mosquitos will eat homemade food."
Okay, I'll grant you that it's tasteless. I know tasteless when I see it. Heck, I lettered in tasteless in high school..
I just don't see it. Papachristou is known for her harsh criticism of Greek's immigration policies. I suppose that in today's world, that equates to being racist, just like a couple of Australian swimmers posing with guns in a Las Vegas gun shop is tantamount to advocating serial murder.
The article criticizes Greece's decision to ban her as overly harsh, stating,
"She should be angry. There have been no reports of Greek Twitter guidelines or rules of conduct for athletes. Officials appeared to make an arbitrary decision based on political pressure."
Of course, the media furor isn't easing that pressure any. Here's a hint, Yahoo: If you think that her conduct was in poor taste but not racist, you might not want to use the phrase "racist tweet" in your headline.
