Diane Abbott says Jewish people wear 'costumes' 19:06 - Apr 29 with 7329 viewsDwightYorkeSuperstar

What a horrible thing to say. Is it racist to call someones religious garment a 'costume'?

I don't think it is but it is still a very poor comment.

I can't understand for the life of me why Corbyn keeps her in such a high profile position.

She's a disaster.

No fan of Diane, but..

When does a comment become offensive?

- Just by saying it and somebody taking offence?
- Saying it with malicious intent?
- Something else?

This week the Home Secretary has lied to Parliament on at least two occasions, publicly blamed officials for doing nothing other than enforce government policy and still has her job. But this is what matters.

IT shows us that the lunatics have well and truly taken over the asylum.

There's no shame anymore with these people in power.

Rudd should have fallen on her sword , but she's either too stupid to realise it or an egomaniac.....or even worse...BOTH!!!!!!!

This is a religious mode of dress, hence the sensitivety.

Horrible?

Only if somebody doesn't understand the dictionary definition of the word 'costume' which is:

'clothes in a style typical of a particular country, group of people or historical period'.

Costume is exactly the right word for the dress of the group she was talking about.

But of course Diane Abbott is, despite her many faults, well educated, unlike, it appears, certain twitter users, idiot journalists at The Express, or, indeed, Dwight.

The word costume is completely acceptable to use in this instance, it’s not remotely offensive or inappropriate, and I feel absolutely filthy for sticking up for Diane Abbott but in this instance she’s not done anything wrong for a change.

The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.

That may be true but I can't imagine many people describing Moslems as wearing costumes.

She said they wore costume, perfectly correctly, as they do.

It's not her fault if some people are thick as mince.

Being thick knows no boundaries of race, religion, colour, gender, sexuality or anything else.

The only people offended by the word used are those who don't know what the word means.
