Way to Go Greece!

Greek triple jumper Voula Papachristau who made a racist remark about Africans



One thing that puzzles me is why in this day and age do we still have to have national and international figures making racist remarks. Voula Papachristau tweeted the following tweet..."With so many Africans in Greece .. At least the mosquitoes of West Nile .. will eat homemade food!.." https://twitter.com/papaxristoutj

What is wrong with you Papachristou? While I am extremely bothered by the content of her remark, I am in fact disgusted with her remarks following the disciplinary actions taken by Greece. Rather than taking ownership for her intolerable behavior, she blames everyone around her. This is unacceptable. Stand up and take responsibility! With comments like that...you don't deserve to compete anywhere let alone in the olympics!
