Seriously, the restraint of this presenter is remarkable. He doesn’t even bat an eyelid. I would have at least gone for a snarky comment.

Now that’s professionalism. 

Via TNC, who has the following interesting observation:

This leads me to separate point–I’m very interested in, precisely, what it means among white people to be considered a racist. I don’t mean under the sanction of black people. I mean in places where there are no black people. It almost feels like, among whites, to be accused of being a racist is a class slur. Like racist is short for “inbred uncultured hick.” It’s fascinating.
