Foot goes to the ball, not mouth

Quite the kerfuffle (I love that word!) in the land of underachievers as Harry Hotspur posted some advice from a Tottenham employee to new signing Roman Pavlyuchenko.
“A lot of dark-skinned people live there,” Rebrov said. “So naturally the crime rate is higher than anywhere else. It’s not nice to be a robbery victim. So I suggest that Roman doesn’t walk but drives around that area.”
Holy crap, that's some of the most patently racist stuff I've heard in a long time. I thought England was supposed to be better about that than America.

So yeah, the employee (Rebrov) is a pathetic waste of space. Had Harry Hotspur said something to that effect, we could have all made our derisive jokes about Rebrov and continued with our day. Unfortunately, Harry Hotspur perpetuated this garbage:
The immeadiate and arguably politically correct response to seeing his words is to bark RACIST!!! and demand... well. demand something or other.
Arguably? Arguably?! Screw political correctness, that's blatant. Harry then goes on to break down the rest of the statement journo-style for reasons I don't want to understand. He was obviously reprimanded and thankfully has issued an apology.

Now what to do about Rebrov?
