‘They’re black and you don’t want them in’

by

Liberal MP Jim Karygiannis gets accusatory at a meeting of the immigration committee.

“What happened in Kingston, Jamaica? … I’ll tell you what happened. They’re black and you don’t want them in.”

That set off a chorus of condemnation… and a point of order by Conservative MP Terence Young who called Karygiannis’s behaviour embarrassing. Karygiannis apologized for his choice of words (said he should have used the word ‘African’), but not his point.
