Australian TV, British twins.
bongoprophet
sorry, a few beers into the 1st of May celebrations.

TeenerTot
I'm sitting here with my mouth open in disbelief.
baleen
The twins have made a statement on FB that they were not offended and that people should stop bothering the world about it.

EvilHomer
Yeah, I'm with baleen and the non-offended twins here. On a scale of 1 to Hitler, that comment was a 2 at best.

TeenerTot
Good for the twins. They're clearly good mature people. I still think it's nutty.

Maggot Brain
Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.

And a million pol/stormfront users cried "NO ONE WOULD HAVE COMPLAINED HAD A BLACK REPORTER CONGRATULATED THE BLACK GIRL ON HER SKIN BECAUSE JEWS ;_;"
Gmork
Youtube comments are a pretty legit reason for aliens to stay away from earth.

Scynne
But it's true. Nobody would have complained.

baleen
Actually it would be even weirder had a bleached blond Australian congratulated a black person for having beautiful creamy chocolate skin.

Gmork
"Lucy got her Dad's fair skin (good on her)".

WHAT. THE. FUCK.

Australia can sometimes be about as racist and xenophobic as Japan. And they've got that whole dumpy religious older generation steering their parliament (is it parliament in australia? I don't even care)

News Corp. So Fox News Australia. Not really all that surprising from a country whose immigration was once dictated by the White Australia Policy.

And in addition to the obviously problematic racism, it was totally each girl's choice for which parents' phenotype to select!

Hooooly crap.

I do appreciate the expression on the other anchor's face as soon as she says it though.

The Mothership
Yup, just fantastic.

Bobonne
That head turn. No words.

No words necessary.

"White guy reaction shots" tag?

ShiftlessRastus for the win.

That reaction was _amazing_.

I had a friend named Greg Gilbraith, whose wife snuck one in on him, and it's the wrong color. Show him this. He can work it into his denial.
DriverStabby
(The best part is, when she was pregnant, I wanted to say to him, "congratulations, do you know who the father is?" but I held my tongue because I thought that was too nasty. I also wanted to say, "at least if your wife is an intolerant redneck in addition to being a whore, you don't have to worry about the baby she sneaks in on you being the wrong color." I didn't say it. Irony tag!)

dairyqueenlatifah
He's not a red headed freckled guy with glasses from Oklahoma is he?

TheOtherCapnS
I mean, having fair skin is a huge advantage in the Western world. Maybe it wasn't a racist comment as much as casually pointing out the disparity, unfair as it may be.
Rodents of Unusual Size
I'm sure that's the exact line she used before they fired her.

Grandmaster Funk
From her tone it seems pretty clear she's doing something akin to what That Guy says below, like "Good on her, she looks similar to me!" That would be cute and banal if it were hair color or some shit, but chumminess between white people does not have the best historical reputation, so it is less cute.

That guy
Ok, I'll join the hurf durf brigade, if only to play devil's advocate for like 3 seconds.

How much of this is "What did she mean by that?", or does this 100% have to be racist?
That guy
It's like the anchor thought that she and the girl both had red hair and she was congratulating her for joining her in the ginger club, but then forgot that she didn't have red hair and was saying skin color instead.
Is there any chance this is just a truly stupid person reaching up over her head here?

Maggot Brain
There are a bunch of clips like this where a TV announcer says something ignorant, I feel like it should be a game; "are you ready to play the game the built modern America? RACIST OR STUPID!!!

betabox
Wow. Such devil's advocacy. Good one as always, That!

Should we be happy that she didn't say, "At least she's not a goddam lesbo!"

EvilHomer
What I'd like to know is, why would it even *matter* if she were racist? What's wrong with diversity? Since when was it a bad thing to offer multiple editorial views? The news should present all sides of the issues they cover; in part, this means that any news channel which is concerned about upholding journalistic integrity, needs to hire at least ONE token racist.

This need for diversity in the news-place is particularly pressing in Australia, where censorship laws are strong, and it may be difficult for non-non-racists (who constitute a significant majority of Australia's underclass) to both find allies within the ranks of Australia's privileged elite who share their values, and to make their voices heard.

That guy
I'm wondering if she's so stupid that she was thinking about it as if they were both fans of the same team or band or something, and didn't realize that that sounds different when you're saying "congrats on choosing white not black!".

Seven Arts/H8 Red
The segment needed Jackie Martling to do an inexplicable cameo, say "they let in too much light on the second one!", laugh, then run off.
Binro the Heretic
Uh, yeah...
Simillion
next watch as she posts FB pictures of her killing housecats.
TheSupafly
The darker girl is clearly the pretty one.
