The Dalai Lama did not apologize for his Islamophobic & racist comments about Muslim & African refugees but he did apologize for his comment that any female successor would have to be hot. He claimed it was a misunderstood joke which only compounds the insult. How many hundreds of times have women objected to misogynist insults only to be told they ‘couldn’t take a joke’? He should also understand that an insult to Muslims & Africans is taken as an insult to all of us. The criticism he is receiving is called pedagogy.
