Unapologetic insolence from an aging subversive

Unapologetic insolence from an aging subversive

Bolt is a raving hypocrite.

He posts about a couple of Brazilian twins. One was accepted at university based on a quota system, because he looked black - the other was rejected presumably because he didn't look black enough. Sure, this is a great example of institutional racism. It's simply wrong.

But Bolt has done exactly the same thing.

He seems totally unaware of his own deep hypocrisy in this reference to the case in Brasil after his own non-stop complaints about aboriginals whom he considered not "black" enough.

The courts, of course, will be dealing with him in due course. He has form dating back to 2002, when Magistrate Jelena Popovic was awarded $246,000 damages for defamation after suing Bolt and the publishers of the Herald Sun over a 13 December 2000 column.

This is excellent commentary. 

And this is relevant. Bolt treats anyone who disagrees with him with utter contempt. He also invents facts, as this wise old judge points out.

I watched that show on SBS that featured the Brazilian twins. It was quite an interesting story of melanin and migration. I was reading a book at the same time, so I didn't take in the whole of their story. However, they seemed to be outraged that a quota for blacks existed, and how unfair it was and how stupidly it could be applied in a country that is an incredible ethnic melting pot.

It really is absurd that one twin could be judged white and the other black - it just shows how subjective and stupid these racial quotas can be.
