Gleaner should've censored Thwaites

Published:Wednesday | January 13, 2016 | 1:00 AM

THE EDITOR, Sir:

I find the words published in The Sunday Gleaner on January 10, 2016 by Daniel Thwaites, "Chris Gayle beg likkle p** p** from white girl on TV and it's like the whole world wants to lose dem goddamn mind!", not only crude, but unbecoming of The Gleaner.

I think The Gleaner should apologise to those of us with some refinement and a sense of shame for those crude and unbecoming words.

Does The Gleaner have no censorship system in place, or is it that you found those words appropriate?

EDITOR'S NOTE: The Sunday Gleaner did not publish the offensive words but used asterisks, which is an internationally accepted means of editorial censorship.
