Racism isnt really funny – Paul Henry on NWTZ

Yesterday, the racist remarks of Kiwi TV host Paul Henry on NZTV was the most read story on BBC News.  Today, Kiwi  media and even government are full of apologetic comments  attempting to repair the damage for racial slurs masqueraded as school-boy locker room humor.While Mr. Henry was suspended from work, one can only hope he does not return. Being in the the media spotlight he has a responsibility, at the very least, not to make such racist remarks. To me however, what is almost as shameful is although his co-presenters did try and correct is pronunciation – an indirect form of confrontation – they effectively let his comments slip.
