Who knew?? Offering someone a bacon sandwich is now "raaaaaaaacist"

Un-fuckin'-believable!!! The Earl of Sandwich spinning in his grave 

From Eric Dondero: 

Welcome to the new Politically Correct United Kingdom, and soon-to-be United States of America. 

Here's the story.  A gentlemanly 58-year old IT contractor gets a visit from a seemingly friendly government bureaucrat wanting to assist with business outreach in the greater Manchester area. 

As the London Daily Mail reports:
he was offered an eight-month NHS contract after attending an interview set up by recruitment firm Reed.
And then this:
'Later, as I was driving home, Ms Sacranie's manager called me and wanted to know about the racist remark I had made. 'I said I had not made one and he said I had said that I would get her a bacon sandwich. But I only made the remark because she referred to breakfast. 
'The woman was of Asian appearance. I am not a racist, never have been. I wasn't brought up that way. 'Bacon sandwiches are often eaten at breakfast. I didn't think for a minute this would have caused offence otherwise I wouldn't have said it.' Mr Hunt said he was due to take up the NHS role last Monday. 
'I have lost a contract because of an unassuming remark about a bacon sarnie,' he said.
Note - "I'll buy the bacon sandwiches is a centuries old saying in England, a friendly term of endearment, particularly in business exchanges, similar to the American English, "I'll buy you a cup of coffee." 

And the open borders crowd want even more immigrants in the West. How is this not outright racism against native populations, perhaps even a mild form of ethnic cleansing, foreigners against native born??

Well, "buying a bacon sandwich" isn't actually an common term of phrase; but if this is all there is to the matter than its clearly unfair and idiotic.
