Labour minister Diane Abbott has defended the Tweet she made earlier today when she said "White People love playing 'divide and rule', we shouldn't play their game"
She claims that the tweet wasn't racist and that she was not making generalisations about white people but claims that the tweet "was taken out of context" and that she was actually "referring to the nature of 19th Century European colonialism" which he explains was a "bit much to get into 140 characters.".
Of course nobody would question Ms. Abbott's integrity. Clearly what she meant when she said "We shouldn't play their game" was that black people should not get into time machines, travel back 150 odd years and play games with long dead people.
It makes perfect sense really!
