Rath, Harry did the right thing, I'm not surprized at Austrailia, as my brother in law spent a year living in your country. His discription of austrailia is that the way blacks are treated, is more like 50years ago in the USA. He came home really saying how backwards Austrailia is in that department, where the cops friends he made, told him crimes against blacks go almost ignored.
What I see in that video, is obvously letting this act go on in the first place shows a national insensitivity to minorieties and stereotype illustrations. Second, the MC of the show said he was sorry to Harry and listened to him as his american perspective, but it seemed to go over his head how racist the act was. Hi appology to Harry was making him feel uncomfortable, but acknowledging the act itself was racist anyplace in the world. Third, the female judge seemed totally fine with the act and gave it a 7, seemingly a accepted attitude and perception of Blacks.
You commented on the other thread, that the USA is the "most racist country bar none", and parts of our history are shameful, however this is 2009 and you should compare our todays. I'm sorry but that act was shamfully racist, and the worst part seemed to be enjoyed, and accepted by your networks, the MC of the show, and an Austrailian judge. This kind of act in the USA would be regarded as totally racist and offencsive, and Harry really went light on you all, becasue he is a guest in your country.
You call Harry a Hypocrite, nothing could be further from the Truth. Harry has been one who has given enormous time and money to the rebuilding a New Orleans, and the problems of its many many citizens both black and white. He actually is a great humanitarian. I don;t think you know too much about the man when you call him a hypocrite. Maybe you should consider cleaning up your own countries act a little.
