A social reprimand

Social reprimand for this news item - look, a sporty Pakistani!

Aftenposten has got a bit of stick for a story it ran yesterday, with a title that screams of multicultural clumsiness: Look, a sporty Pakistani!

Naturally, good Norwegians have reacted with outrage, calling it racist. Aftenposten has proceded to apologize, sort of, because they seem to be reluctant to admit that this was a bad title to start with and have provided proof in the form of comments from Norwegians with a Pakistani heritage  who think it was nice to read a positive story on fellow counrtymen.

Even if a half hearted apology is only that, half hearted, it would be nice to read an apology for another, and much more provocative howler, namely the headline where they claimed that Rich Jews threathen Obama.
