Default Re: Amir khan and political correctness

I have Asian friends who can't stand him and have used words about him that if I were to have used I would be brandished as a racist.

If he were white, black or mixed race he'd get much more stick than he does from the media but he doesn't and the only people who are criticising him based on his delusions of grandeur (amongst other things) are those who aren't particularly bothered about being called racist.

I don't believe racism is the primarily motivating factor for most people, it may be for some but there's always a small number of people who have racial prejudice.
