“I’m not racist. I have nothing against coloureds…. I mean black people… or your skin colour. I mean it’s not your fault …..”


This was said during a conversation over lunch with a former colleague, twelve/thirteen years ago. I was working weekends at a department store (those born, raised and living in London should remember Allders of Bromley, which has now been turned in to a Primark), and this particular colleague happened to be a 16 year old girl, who at the time was involved in a hot and heavy relationship with a 32 year old man….  


Anyway I cannot remember how we got on to the subject matter of Race but she dropped this gem and I thought I would share it.




I often wonder what became of her…..
