This story is starting to really bug me now. Not the fact she walked to the South Pole, well done to her I say. What I dislike is how the news keeps repeating first woman of colour. FFS she's mixed race and more White than Black and going by her name I think she has some Indian in her genetics. She's not any more coloured than Harry the bitches other half. Besides what difference does it make as to what colour she is. How is that relevant to the story.
What may happen now is that the poor girl could end up getting the backlash from the media shit stirring and receive racist abuse online etc. They are making an issue out of a non issue just to push an agenda and drill these terms into peoples head. It's like torture. White noise constantly repeated and it's not only the BBC as I just heard GMTV use the term. IMO this is main stream media racism borderline racist abuse if they don't consider the possible consequences of their actions that could prevail from their wording and the way they portray this story.
