The Racist Formerly Known As...

From BBC NEWS | UK : Prince's apology for racist term
The News of the World has published video in which [Prince Harry] calls one of his Sandhurst colleagues a "Paki" in commentary he made over filming.
Aw, how cute! He takes after his grandfather!
In a separate incident, Prince Harry is heard calling another officer cadet a "raghead". . . .

A statement from St James's Palace [said]: "Prince Harry fully understands how offensive this term can be, and is extremely sorry for any offence his words might cause. . . ."

The statement continued: "Prince Harry used the term 'raghead' to mean Taleban or Iraqi insurgent."
Seriously? That's the best they could come up with? It's okay to be racist as long as you're only talking about the bad guys? It's that sort of mentality that makes them "the bad guys" in the first place, dipshits! Here are some of the other excuses considered by the palace spin doctors:
"Prince Harry used the term 'raghead' to refer to someone who is extremely enthusiastic about rags."

"Prince Harry was actually saying 'ragged', as in, 'Let's run those Taleban scallywags ragged, eh, chaps?'"

"Prince Harry used the term 'raghead' to refer to that scene in The Invisible Man where the title character pulls the rags away from his face to reveal his condition."

"Prince Harry was actually saying 'Jughead', a popular nickname for his best friend in the unit, owing to the prince's own uncanny resemblance to Archie."

"Prince Harry is a spoilt tool."
I think they should have gone with the last one.
