WAS SHE WORRIED BY THE KAISER OR THE CHIEF?

Caught on a plane in a conversation with a woman, Ricky Wilson found himself being suspected of being a little bit Romper Stomper:

"There was an incident on an aeroplane in Australia when I was sat next to this woman. She said, 'Why are you called the Kaiser Chiefs? That's a horrible name. Is it in any way racist?'

"I said, 'It's probably the least racist name because it's a South African football team.' You should have seen the look of relief on her face. She thought she was sat next to a neo-Nazi."


Presumably the woman thought that Kaiser - being a German variation of the word Ceaser - had to have Nazi overtones because it was German? In which case... who would have been the one with the racist assumptions right there?
