Come on Steve. Not the same as the colloquial examples you cite. China is obviously mot known for it's ‘world famous apple juice’. The poor joke was clearly a shot, smacking of racism. Nothing at all to do with media Just one’s personal values and opinion. Perhaps we Cdns are too sensitive about avoiding perceptions of racism. Our preference is to err on the side of caution rather than condoning such references. And we also call people out if need be. It’s not about political correctness. It’s about doing what’s right in our view.
