None dare call it "racism."

Racist? Or just abominably stupid and tone deaf? Sometimes, it's hard to tell.

They need a third spokesperson:

Honestly, I'd go with the stupid and tone deaf option. "The Great White Hope" has been a common idiom since I was little, and I've rarely heard it used with reference to skin colour although that's sort of where it came from. Most people don't connect the two, but she should really have thought of it.
