All White Fury : Aussie Rules Football Club Has Some Fuckkked Ideas For A Dinner Party

Posted in Australian Rules Football, Racism Corner at 3:08 pm by

At the very least, I am assuming the Torquay Tigers are looking for a new webmaster. It seems the football/netball club chose to announce an forthcoming social gathering with the images shown below :

From the Herald Sun’s Peter Familiari :

“It caught me by surprise, because I haven’t been on the website for a while. I didn’t know anything about it,” said Michael Coleman, Torquay Tigers club secretary.

“But I’m thinking ‘All White Night’ and hoping no one would find any racism in that. But the picture is likely to be the work of an individual person and it’s certainly not the club’s thoughts.”

The picture was withdrawn soon after it attracted widespread media attention, being replaced by Disney character Snow White.

The Herald-Sun helpfully adds, “the Ku Klux Klan, also known as the KKK, is a white supremacist organisation which has a record of violence towards African-Americans, Jews and other minorities”, perhaps proving that “Mississippi Burning” didn’t do so well in Australia.
