Diane Abbott Is Innocent

Posted: 05/01/12 11:04

Three reasons why Diane Abbott's tweet was not racist:

a) She was actually referring to this Xbox game that white people like playing:

b) In Uruguayan Spanish "White people" does not mean "White people."

c) She was on a tram in Croydon at the time.
