Less than a week after Donald Trump derided South American, Caribbean, and African countries as sh*tholes, our lovely neighbor across the pond has also thrown it's hat in the ugly racism ring.
By our lovely neighbor, I mean Britain, and by ugly racism, I mean racist, classist texts against the soon-to-be black British princess Meghan Markle.
Lots and lots of them.

I apologise unreservedly for the shocking language I used. The opinions I expressed were deliberately exaggerated in order to make a point and have, to an extent, been taken out of context. Yet I fully recognise the offence they have caused. No offence was intended and, again, I apologise unreservedly for any such offence or hurt that my messages have caused to members of the public, members of Ukip my friends, family and loved ones. I have disappointed them all and let myself down. I cannot sufficiently express my regret and sadness at having done so.Umm, so where in there does she actually apologize to Markle?
I like the way Jo Marney uses the "taken out of context" defence. In exactly what context could such vile comments be acceptable?— Jenny d'Arcy (@TheSpiritOfByBy) January 14, 2018
