We like to claim first rights to everything but English can not be one. As a matter of fact in the eyes of an Oxford English speaking person the American English sounds dumb and uneducated. Our English is merely a rip-off of the English language which has established itself over a few hundred years.
We have no right to place judgement on another country's version of the English language. This whole notion that black people can't speak English will be thrown out of the window if you have ever heard a black English person speaking in its finest Oxford English. And he sounds so smart but we really don't know if he actually is smart.
If an English person in the US says: Yesterday I smoked five fags. Are you suing him for discrimination or hate crime against gays? Because after all "smoking five fags" could be translated as 'beating up on 5 homosexual people' not "smoking five cigarettes".
This whole PC crap is going overboard nowadays.
What difference DOES it make? There are people who make their living "race-baiting". No racism means no job so they have to find it or create it.
It is a fact that at one time whites around the world treated non-whites very poorly. Therefore, anything that rich white descendants of slave owners think/consider/ponder or do in respect to non-whites IS racist. People who were white in the USA and what was to become the USA between 30-400 years ago were racist so whites must be racist now. It is safe for these people to assume that those who control Volkswagen are white because rich descendants of slave owners would never allow non-whites to rise to a position of power in the company - because their racist - a fact supported by circular logic that there likely aren't many minorities in the Volkswagen board room.
