I called somebody out this week for saying the following : "I see Emily Heskey is in the women's final at Wimbledon for the 70th time".
I think it's racist. What do you think people?

Being overt about race is very prole. Older people are usually cut a bit of slack as they grew up in a different world but if you are under 85 you should know the score by now.
Middle class people don't have anything to gain and plenty to lose by expressing any preference for one race over another. The only exception is white men, they are safe to hate as long as they aren't gay or trans.
Is it racist to point out that people with African ancestry seem to excel at many sports? Not sure but it's safer not to mention it.

How have you concluded that this is racist?
I have no idea who she is, but its pretty common for people to exaggerated someone's achievement's (or something is repeated a load of times). I'm sure my mum used to say "do I need to tell you to put your shoes away for the hundredth time".....

I'll bang out a Macaroon on the ol' Joanna right after I've popped out for a quick Mark Ramprakash.
