Very local to me and utterly appalling. I really hoped that in such a diverse area we'd be safer from this.
Not sure why I'm posting or what the debate should be, just driven to share by my shock I guess. We need to continue to openly confront all racist behaviour, yes it's not all as extreme as this, but that guy we all moan about on the bus at the central... we should see accepting his tirades is only one step away from a more physical reaction. It's so easy to deny people think like this on YOUR doorstep (I'm guilty I guess) and believe it's an issue 'elsewhere'.
One of the black mothers of a child in my dd's class was shouted at and racially abused outside the school by two black women, for having a fair skinned child. I think abuse directed at black women with white partners by other black people is more common than you realise. :-(
