Greece Racist Expelled from Olympics

Greek Olympian Papachristou expelled for 'racist tweet'

Greek triple jumper Voula Papachristou has been expelled from her country's Olympic team over comments she posted on Twitter which were deemed racist.

Papachristou was due to compete in the London 2012 Games, which officially start this Friday.

But the Hellenic Olympic Committee said her posts mocking African immigrants and expressing support for a far-right party went against the Olympic spirit.

Utter BS, when the F muslems are in the streets shout death and destruction to their host country, they are just wayed on by.
Clearly this was a polotical move, some joke about Blacks, so F what.

ANything to get the Greeks out a??

And your title stinks. Everyone makes such comments, hardly Racists, what, we should all STFU and let the PC brigade take over??? Its because of them that the world has turned to shit. Just look at the UK, living proof.

Precisely.

This woman's affiliation with a Greece racist party didn't prevent her from being selected.

However, the expectation is that she should keep her personal views to herself and be an ambassador for her country but only succeeded in bringing shame to it.

Another Greek female was expelled for doping along with a whole bunch of athletes from other countries including a Turk. It happens every time...

Because people the world over will now believe ALL Greeks and ONLY Greeks, wherever they live, make racist comments?
