A tone of attack by union boss

Of course, Sir Roy Should apologize. Not only to Mr Hassid but to the offended Barbadians also.
Sir Roy’s comment was inappropriate and full of venom, and has to be taken in the context in which it was delivered. The tone rendered it an attack on Mr Hassid’s race.
Some people have sought to justify his comment by reducing it to a simple “the man is an Egyptian and a Jew so there is nothing wrong with the comment”. What folly!
If the said “Egytian Jew” had called a black Barbadian black, all hell would have broken out in Barbados with the said Sir Roy leading the charge. But we are black, aren’t we?
Seems to me that Blacks think that they are the only ones who can be offended by reference to colour or race.
