Local musician Joseph Power defended Corfield's musical preferences saying, 'Why should it matter what instrument he plays? I jam with him sometimes and he doesn't just play bass, he does normal guitar too, was Jimmy Hendrix being racist when he played guitar?'
The issue has sparked a chain of similar events, with people calling out what are now dubbed as 'passive racists' across the town.
In a bid to avoid criticism, local man Liam Breen took up roller skating saying that 'I'm pretty sure this is multicultural,' but many were dissatisfied with his choice claiming that now he was being passively discriminatory against homosexuals.
Breen's defense against these allegations were 'Guys I'm not gay, why does everyone think I'm gay?'
In a survey conducted briefly this morning, a anonymous black man stated that 'Why does anyone care that he [Corfield] plays bass? He's pretty good and that Tom Brown guy is going over the top with this, seriousy he's white, no black people care about passive racism.'
Corfield was unavailable for comment.
