    Hello, Devil's advocate here!

    I can see how this would be bad if she were ranting about immigration, but on it's own it doesn't seem like that terrible of a comment.  In poor taste (hee, pardon the pun), incorrect (the mosquitoes aren't African, the virus the mosquitoes are spreading is), but it doesn't seem to say anything negative about Africans. I hear that Greece is lovely place.  Why is it a bad thing to state that there are Africans in Greece?  And why is it SO bad that she gets booted from the Olympics?

    From my experience with Greeks, they are a bunch of racists.
