    Not sure that this should go here, but it it needs to go elsewhere (or someone else already posted it), my apologies.

    Romanian TV host fined for “extreme racism” after statement about Serena Williams

    Radu Banciu, a Romanian TV host who presents a late-evening TV show at local news station B1 TV, was sanctioned by the National Council for Combatting Discrimination (CNCD) for “extreme racism” after comparing American tennis champion Serena Williams to a monkey.

    The CNCD slapped a RON 8,000 (EUR 1,700) fine on Banciu arguing that this was not the first time he made such comments.

    “Serena Williams looks like those monkeys at the zoo with the red butt. If you put some pants over that butt, they look exactly as Serena Williams looks on court,” Banciu said on TV, according to CNCD, which commented that the statement is discriminatory and breaches the right to dignity.

    “Black people slavery was based, among others, on comparing them with monkeys. Consequently, such statements represent a form of extreme racism,” CNCD said in a press release.

    Extreme racism. As opposed to everyday, garden variety racism. Got it.

    Serious question here.
    The statement by this Romanian guy is truly outrageous. Don't you think it is indeed "extreme", as opposed to the (for example) veiled racism that you can hear in Fox? Or from the GOP in the USA? ("I am the least racist person in the world but..." (and here they say something patently racist)).
    Not picking on you, just really want to hear your opinion.

    I was commenting on the fact that veiled racism is sometimes every bit as insidious--and often worse in terms of real consequences--even if it doesn't sound as bad. Like when people say illegal immigrants do not contribute to the tax base and live off of welfare, medical assistance, etc. Some people actually believe that, so repeating it perpetuates a largely untrue and dangerous stereotype that can have a profound impact on policy, elections, and ultimately, real people's lives. That brand of racism causes far more practical harm than the racial slur used by the Romanian TV personality. Yet it goes unchecked.
