An interesting conversation showing overt racism by a British Royal Householder when taking to a born-in-Britain black woman (as reported by the BBC).
If you think it compares to a teeth pulling dental session, you wouldn’t be wrong. Here is the full conversation, as recounted by Ms Fulani: Lady SH: Where are you from? Me: Sistah Space. SH: No, where do you come from? Me: We're based in Hackney. SH: No, what part of Africa are you from? Me: I don't know, they didn't leave any records. SH: Well, you must know where you're from, I spent time in France. Where are you from? Me: Here, the UK. SH: No, but what nationality are you? Me: I am born here and am British. SH: No, but where do you really come from, where do your people come from? Me: 'My people', lady, what is this? SH: Oh I can see I am going to have a challenge getting you to say where you're from. When did you first come here? Me: Lady! I am a British national, my parents came here in the 50s when... SH: Oh, I knew we'd get there in the end, you're Caribbean! Me: No lady, I am of African heritage, Caribbean descent and British nationality. SH: Oh so you're from... Roland. Toronto.
