You can’t say piccaninnies watermelon smiles letterboxes etc but claim you are not racist cos some of your best friends are Asian, like Saj, but he’s one of the good ones... His uncritical white privilege, othering and exoticism, and divisive rhetoric are pretty much the definition of racism. (Obligatory passive aggressive) HTH.

I think he says things without considering the effect his words may have on others. I remember, when he was Foreign Secretary visiting a Buddhist temple in Burma, he started quoting a passage from Kipling and was told by the British Ambassador that it was inappropriate.

Well Emily Thornbury said that she wouldn't want anyone whose face was covered caring for her elderly parents or young children. I take it that's ok though?? Boris is v proud of his Turkish roots and his wife (STBX?) is of Asian heritage and plus what others have commented on, he has a diverse cabinet

Yes he is extremely racist. The letterbox comment was racist enough but what about saying that black people have lower IQs? Also what about this video?
I voted labour.
