do they really need to be explicitely racist?
Any such slur would be cut for legal reasons, no?
The fact that they picked her, nad pick on her using what their ignorant eyes see as "racial" traits to bully her... is enough to construe racism/xenophobia.
if she chose to respond to constant bullying by mocking Jade's pronounciation, it is misguided in my view, but as opposed to the dimwits (is it dim-whites?) I can justify her choice:
- she has to use something at the level of the crap they gave her: they are mocking her "accent", she is mocking theirs... which has more impact given that THEY are British and Dirk the American will not understand more than 70% of what they say.
- she has to use something they will understand... she can hardly use wit against them!
She could have think twice about it... but ask yourself why you oppose her one unwise choice of responding to their multiple bullyish racism?
Good for her: they are buying her ticket to the final, and theirs to media hell...
Though the core fans of jade will hardly been put off by racism...
