It concludes: "We think UK darn good place. Too darn good for the white man race! If they no like us, they can scram. Got lots of room in Pakistan!"<br><br>
Beneath the poem appear the words "Please send this to every British taxpayer you know" and a cartoon of the white cliffs of Dover with the words "Piss off - we're full!" scrawled across them.</td>

How horrible! I cannot believe that she would forward such an e-mail and seriously be able to say that she is not racist! Um, did she read the damn thing?!?!?!?!?!?

But she's got "German in-laws and Asian friends" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wild.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wild"><br><br>
So there's no way she could be racist.<br><br>
You gotta wonder about people!

"Asked why the poem singled out Pakistanis and turban-wearers and talked about the "white man race" if it was not racist, she added: "I didn't write it ... We do have friends of all kinds - we actually have German in-laws. And we have friends who are Asian. I wouldn't be rude to them.""<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:<br><br><br>
Thing is... she'd probably get promoted here in the States under the current administration for an email like that.

I saw that same exact email with it being "Mexican" instead of "Pakistan" about 10 years ago.<br><br>
Its a whole lotta UA VIOLATIONS, the very nicest of which is it is OLD and PLAYED OUT.
