Calling someone's statement 'knee jerk' and divisive
whilst employing the emotional/religious reference to
Christmas for effect is quite a spin.

Ho, ho, ho :)

Although I am sure Mike's email was "written from the best of motives,"
frankly  I don't understand how anyone quoting the great Mr Shankly in his
email can begrudge someone taking whatever advantage they can to get ahead.
And frankly, why bother starting a potentially divisive thread the week
before Christmas by tossing out a knee jerk statement like that? Do you
really want to get into a discussion of economics and race? yeesh.
