I just read a friend of mine’s post on Facebook in which he, an American, was spoken to by a British man when he holidayed in the UK and told he should be back in America fighting for Black rights rather than taking a holiday.
I rather like the modern way of strangers mingling and chatting about just about anything and sharing a joke. My friends are brilliant at putting people at ease and smiling and laughing for five minutes before walking on or engaging with people on journeys.
But the racist feels they can insult anyone with impunity. It’s about time we could record these people on a phone, send the record to a department of the police force and have them immediately fined. It won’t shut them up but the money can be given to minority communities and that will make the bigots mad as hell.
