It appears that he made some comment comparing the Senegal football team to beach sellers.

Here you go.

 

Not fired, and not (as far as I'm aware) investigated by the police.

Where have you been living for the last few years - it must have been mentioned in at least half the stories about her since her marriage into the royal family was announced.

The people getting most excited about it are the BBC luvvie types. Most people couldn't care less that Prince Harry's wife has mixed white and black ancestry.

Ok, let's extend it and just say the media. Most people outside of the media circus couldn't care less.

But still pretty hard to avoid - like the point I made in post #59.

 

Not knowing and not caring are two separate animals.

Quite a few people do seem to care, having sent her and him death threats and called him a race traitor and all sorts of other ugly things.

Same here - in fact never heard it used anywhere.

Maybe it was just used by my group of friend. We used it 20-25 years ago, I think it was introduced to us by a member of our group who came from Middlesborough.  I always thought it was from that part of the country.

A small minority and such people barely count as humans.

Widely reported in the media though, so you'd think that he'd be aware of it and sensitive to how his tweet might be misinterpreted.
