Is This Racist? Host Congratulates Mixed Race Twin On Her White Skin While Black Sister Looks on

A petition has been launched asking for Sunrise’s Samantha Armytage to apologise for comments she made on-air, dubbed by some viewers as ‘racist’. The cause of controversy came when the 37-year-old interviewed twins from the UK, Lucy and Maria Aylmer, who have become a sensation around the world due to their opposite skin tones. Introducing the 18-year-olds, Armytage congratulated ginger-haired Lucy on getting ‘her dad’s fair skin,’ saying ‘good on her.’ What do you think?

Its possible she just isn’t too bright and meant it differently than it sounded. I could see someone where I live saying that meaning lucky thing you look white with all the racist cunts around here. No way to know what was in her mind for sure, but all white folks know they have it good in general and if they say they don’t they are lying to themselves. I’m half Scottish ( fathers from Inverness) and my mother is Blackfoot. My sister looks very native and I got the translucent skin of my father. Forgot what my point was…getting old sucks.

I remember, point was I grew up watching how people treated my sister and I differently and we have the same parents. Learned along the way to step back and take a breath and decide if what was happening was just a misunderstanding or someone being a racist dick.
