Greek Olympian banned for racist comment...wyhi!

The pussification of.....Greece?!?!


LONDON – Greek triple jumper Voula Papachristou was banished from the Olympic Games on Wednesday after making racist comments and expressing right-wing sentiments on Twitter.

Papachristou was scheduled to fly to London next week from her training base in Athens when the Hellenic Olympic Committee – Greek’s Olympic federation – made the decision to expel her from the team.

Papachristou, 23, made a racist and tasteless comment on her Twitter account, @papaxristoutj, that highlighted the number of African immigrants in Greece.

quote:

“With so many Africans in Greece … at least the West Nile mosquitos will eat homemade food!!!,” Papachristou wrote. She also reposted a comment from controversial Greek politician Ilias Kasidiaris, who has strongly criticized his government’s “soft” immigration policy.

Not really sure how its racist. The Nile is in Africa, and people from Africa are African.

I didn't realize being perfectly PC was as important as athletic ability.

It s so interesting how the west has "progressed" to the point that there are "unapproved" thoughts that govts will take action against. Funny part is, most of the time, people used to act like this would be a right wing phenomenon. Alas nope. It's the leftists who think this is legitimate.

Even though most say the comment isnt racist but why tweet this.. It was meant to be derogatory. Very unprofessional for someone participating in the Olympics, which is to bring the world together in unity.

That is not racist. Or, if it is racist, it could be concluded that any comment by a non-black about a black is racist.

It wasn't even a comment about a particular race.
