Well, it’s not nice making such comments especially in this sensitive time of the Olympics. I am all for Free Speech and all, but sometimes it is better just to keep quite and not make Greece look bad and just running your mouth especially when the Olympics is about to begin. 

LONDON – Greek triple jumper Voula Papachristou was banished from the Olympic Games on Wednesday after making racist comments and expressing right-wing sentiments on Twitter.

Papachristou, 23, made a racist and tasteless comment on her Twitter account, @papaxristoutj, that highlighted the number of African immigrants in Greece.
