I should go easy on Peter MacKay, afterall, we are family. Rather than being slapped for bringing up a few less notable aspects from cousin Peter’s past I’m instead being confronted by a letter writer who saw a lot more than innocent ridicule against Canada’s Foreign Minister.
“Racist, racist, racist. Spectator, you’ve sunk to an all-time low, propagating racial stereotypes. Not funny”,
emails Alyson Luckett of Hamilton, only a couple hours after it was printed. I’m trying to figure out what racial stereotypes I’ve propagated. Can anyone help?
Good grief. “potato patch boy” “rice Paddy”? c’mon. see the little chinese woman crouching behind him. see him slurping green tea. oh brrrrrotherrr. besides, it just wasn’t even funny.
