CBC: Manitoba MP wants 'racist' minister to resign
Conservative member of Parliament Inky Mark called for the resignation of cabinet minister Reg Alcock Thursday, calling him a racist for suggesting that Liberals wanting to entice defectors would have looked for someone "a little higher up the gene pool" than Mark. "It demonstrates racial intolerance," Mark said of the "gene pool" comment. "It's about genetics. That's what the Second World War was about." Mark was born in Hoysun, China, but left as a boy to move to Canada. [...] One after another, the other Conservatives stepped up to the microphone to defend Mark and call for an end to what they called a series of racist remarks by Liberals in recent days.
I'd make fun of someone named "Inky Mark" too.
