“Its like the time NBC kept insisting on calling a Canadian negress olympic winner an Afro-American woman during an interview, much to her annoyance.”
HA! I saw the same thing happen with a Canadian hockey player. (I can’t remember if he was a pro or what or why I was watching it.)
Interviewer: There aren’t too many African-American hockey players, what is that like for you?
Player: I’m Canadian.
Interviewer: is it hard to fit in with your hockey player peers as an African-American?
Player: I’m a Canadian!
It just went on and on, so, so stupid.
