Witnessed an altercation on the Bakerloo Line this morning. An angry black guy – not sure what had annoyed him – was screaming at station staff about “This fucking white bitch” and “Some fucking white English person.” Yet the staff didn’t appear to have called the police. Perhaps the rules of Blair’s police state mandate an exemption for blacks: after all, the book of political correctness makes clear that only white people are racist.
Wonder what’d happen if I (as an equal-opportunities-favouring white person working predominantly for an extremely diverse client) started yelling about “Some black bastard”? My feet wouldn’t touch the ground until they reached court.
At least I managed to deliver my usual retort to odious people as I passed: “What a nasty little man you are.”
