Councillor's racist 'joke' falls flat
by Matthew Warren
A politician with the centre-right UMP party near Nice found others didn't get the joke when he sent a 'humorous' email mocking the North African accent.
Gilbert Garelli, a local councillor in La Colle-sur-Loup in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region, sent the email to a group of 20 friends.
The offending missive was sent on August 1st, the first day of Ramadan, and mis-spelled certain words to mimic the accent.
