No story here apart from the relentless drive for unearned equality.
Or possibly a challenge to the lazy, blase attitude to institutional racism that is endemic in the UK and it's defenders who never see a problem with racism, but big ones with calls for actual equality

Your journey to the far right is ever nearing it's destination.

You're dunce-hatting your own assertion, not mine. Well done.

As an aside, how have we landed on 'person of colour' after moving on from 'coloured'?

what's wrong with "black" then?

forms in this country ask people to identify as white, so i can't see the difference.
