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.

I don't exactly like Carol Thatcher, but that comment does not make her a racist. She certainly shouldn't be fired for an innocent slip of the tongue.

Golliwog... really?

Over-zealotry on political correctness is such a huge bullshit.

One thing I think people need to remember before trying to lynch the woman is that she is from a different generation. I know that this excuse/reason is used a lot but sometimes people use terminolgies out of a kind of ignorance as to what is acceptable now.
