Poland has been Forced to Deny Radek Sikorski, Foreign Minister, ´Joked´ that Barack Obama´s Grandparents were Cannibals

Writing in his blog, Mr Czarnecki, an MEP, quoted the foreign minister as saying: "Have you heard that Obama may have a Polish connection? His grandfather ate a Polish missionary."

A spokesman for the Polish foreign office conceded that Mr Sikorski had made the controversial comment, but denied that the foreign minister had intended to insult Mr Obama, whose father was Kenyan.

"Mr Sikorski did not tell a racist joke," said Piotr Paszkowski, the spokesman. "He was only giving an example of the unpalatable and racist ´jokes´ that surround President Elect Obama." Source: U.K. Telegraph

First of all, your post is making me think that Poles are not even able to see this is racist.

 

Second of all, Im not the one who is throwing out hatred but your dear minister whom you`re pointlessly trying to defend.

 Of course it is a racist comment!!!! You don´t see it?  Would he have made that comment about a white president?  He is referring to some primitive "tribe" to try and humiliate Obama in this "joke".  It is outrageous! {#lang_emotions_wtf}

 

As the article says:-

 

"What a bunch of idiots. Again, is this the best Poland could do? Don´t they have bigger issues to worry about? Like Russia breathing down their back. Say what you will, Barack Obama will still become the next President of the United States."

Racist? Poles? OF COURSE! We are racists and even if we don´t realise that. Another Polish MP said that with Obama´s presidency, the era of white man´s rule in USA is over. Nobody felt offended because it´s tolerable to say so in Poland. We don´t have a significant black community to protest and we go on believing the rest of the world is like us. Sikorski, though should be more sensitive to this issue as he´s got British education as far as I know

Yes, this is primitive and stupid, but I don´t think it´s racist. How does it ´denigrate race´? Everybody has primitive tribal roots, it´s a fact. Just because he wouldn´t say that about a white president doesn´t mean anything, because only europeans are whites. To me it just shows ignorance.

 Of course it is blatant racism if he did in fact say it. How anyone could say otherwise is amazing, also this guy is apparently in charge of foreign affairs.{#lang_emotions_scared}
