Re: Carol Thatcher dropped from the BBC, after being racist to a tennis player
Carol Thatcher usually appears on a morning phone in show called the ""wright Stuff" with Matthew Wright. He said that he has worked with Carol over the years and she is the least racist person that you could meet. Apparently she actually made the comment about Monfils's hair, saying that it reminded her of the Golliwog on the Robertson's Jam jars from years ago. No, she shouldn't have said it given the racial connotations to the term golliwog but I don't think that this neccessarily means that she's racist. I recently likened Jelena Jankovich's make up to Barbara Cartland's so if you apply the same logic I could have been thought of as being disrespectful to old ladies. If she had said it in a really racist way (which we will never truly know)that would be shameful but we will never know for sure the context of how it was said. And as someody who regularly has foot in her mouth disease myself, I would want to know more before judging her.
