Why Is Racism Ok In Spain?

Seriously. The Spanish Big Brother has a participant called, Amor, who makes constant unambiguous racist comments towards another contestant. Telecinco, the TV network which shows the program, denounces her racism but doesn't stop her. This is not a cable network and children watch this.

Amor gets off light because she's a male-to-female transexual. Now, since when is being part of a minority and excuse to behave like this? Why isn't anyone calling her on it? Something similar (although much less blatant) happened on the British Big Brother: the participant was expelled and, if my memory serves me well, there was even a formal statement from the government saying that THIS WAS NOT OK. The LGTB magazine Cero has her on the front-page this month. Why aren't people screaming at Cero? How can a gay magazine condone this person? They'll probably argue that they don't condone her behaviour, but wtf? They're giving her publicity, she's becoming a minor celebrity. This is sick.

This is made even more convoluted by the fact that the guy who she attacks is an avowed homophobe. Please, don't make us watch this. Kick them both out. This is denigrating to everyone, black, white, gay and straight.

Somebody adopt me. I want me a new country; the ones I have, suck.
