Casual racism is to common! This has to stop! Being so blatant about and still no reaction by the station!

Well I'd like to know what she meant be 'good on her' she, at the very least, needs to explain herself.

Come on Jay Fifth! You are No. 1 to make out of a mouse an elephant! A thoroughly loving and innocent remark became in your interpretation a terrible racist remark! Have you ever lived in other countries? They may call you either a (white) potato or a white buffalo and it does not mean they hate you or denigrate you. Get over it and live and stop making dramas! The only drama is you and only you...a drama in a tea cup!

Because what she said is clearly RASCIST! Samantha needs to be put on the spotlight for being insensitive too other people's color. What does she mean she is shocked at the outcome... where do they hire these ediots from. I bet you money this RASCIST person doesn't even have a friend of color. Honestly this day and age we can not let people of this stature lead us, and bring us news into our homes, with that mentality. This is 2015, if this was any other country she would be sacked!! Why are there no dark presenters on any television host shows? Why do they glamourize the lives of Kim and Kanye etc etc. But hate or show no love to there own indegeneous people. There maybe 2 faces I know of color to be on television as a presenter, one a comedian who takes the piss out of RASCIST Aussies.I will never watch ch 7 again bloody bigot. Own up and stop hiding behind your perfect white world

Why would Sam imply the fair skin sister was luckier? It makes no sense. To make a comment like that tells me this woman is extremely ignorant (maybe not racist) but definitely stupid and I some Australians will not see a problem with Sam statement because they too are ignorant. As a black British woman living in Australia, Sam statement is typical of many I have met. Unfortunately Australia has a long way to go until before statements such as Sam are frowned upon rather than ignored or rejoiced.
