Must not mention to a black that he is black

Harry Potter actress Miriam Margolyes has sparked outrage after 'humiliating a black fan at an autograph signing, telling him: 'Jews and blacks, they get a discount'.

The Bafta-winning star made the comments while signing photographs for £5 at the London Film Convention.

The 75-year-old, who played Professor Sprout in the Harry Potter series of films, was filmed saying to one man: 'I'm giving you a discount because you're black'.

The acting veteran, who herself is Jewish, has earlier joked 'can't you afford five quid?' as he took a photograph of her.

The woman who filmed the exchange, told The Sun: 'There were lots of us stood around taking photos but he was the only man who was black.

'She singled him out absolutely. Then she made that quip about Jews and blacks and everyone was just staring at the ground and looking embarrassed.

'I recognised the man she targeted from other events and he looked humiliated.'

The professionally offended are always on the watch for something to be offended about on behalf of other people.

Some people need to GET A LIFE and quit whining about the minor things and tell the PC crowd to GO POUND SAND

And rather than let a poorly thought out joke fail and be kind enough to not mention it they have to be offended and make a big fuss about it.

Face it, we all try something that fails sometimes. Let it go.

And Christians and Jews are being killed for their faith in the middle east. That put the proper perspective on what at most is a very small slight.

Blacks demand to be treated differently and given special rights. Then get pissed when they are treated differently and given special rights.
