Teaching my kids the word ‘tell’ I asked the class if anyone could tell me a secret. Cherry, a boisterous nine-year old stood up and yelled “A boy in my class is disabled. He is very, very ugly.” Lost for words I merely gawped and quickly moved on to the next bit of vocab. After class I was heading for the office when another kid from a different class pointed at me and yelled “black man!” Either racist or blind, or both, the kid continued to chant this while I tried to vain to shut him up. Political correctness doesn’t work here. For one, they don’t do politics. For two, they have a top selling brand of toothpaste called Darlie, which translates as Black Man toothpaste.
The logo as you can see, consists of a smiling black man in a top hat. Unbelievable. It’ll be a while before anyone here gets in trouble for calling a woman ‘dear.’ (Referring of course to David ‘Pistachio’ Cameron and his horrendously sexist and demeaning slur).
