Dutch humor doesn't translate

We read:
"The editor-in-chief of a Dutch women's magazine has resigned aftehe it called pop superstar Rihanna "the ultimate n*** bitch" in an article on street fashion.

The slur sparked an angry backlash from fans of the Barbados-born singer, 23, after it appeared in the latest edition of Jackie.

Editor Eva Hoeke denied there was any racial motive behind the article, despite it reading, "She's got street cred, a ghetto ass and a golden throat. Rihanna, the good girl gone bad, is the ultimate n**** bitch."

She described the magazine's choice of words as a "bad joke -- to say the least" and said it "should never have happened. End of story."

Yet it's perfectly acceptable for a black person to call a black woman a n*gger bitch. F*cking hypocrites.

A fact can not be racist.

Well, give them a break. They're Dutch, so they might not really understand the full meaning of what they're saying.

The Dutch gave you New York (as New Amsterdam) and Presidents like the two Roosevelts were of Dutch extraction - I guess americans forget they are only a colony of europe (once literally and now culturally - in the main part).
