I do the same job as one of my black colleagues and he earns a lot more than me. 🤔

Anecdotes don’t really prove anything.

True. The value of a person is what he or she can do. But then again as you know you can always prove anything with statistics. Without delving into the data and looking at the reasons to say it is "racism" is conjecture. Even Lammy knows that.

Young black men are far more likely to earn little or no money, but rely on the spoils of crime as a result of the location and environment they are brought up in. Just saying its "racist" is the easy option.

Are you one of the Klansmen patrolling the woods trying to spot any BAMEs infiltrating our glorious white countryside??

First they reintroduced segregation, now they're shooting each other, so that's all worked well hasn't it.

No, but I've just been lecturing an alder, a larch and two pines on the absolute necessity of being fully inclusive.

But what shade? Olive or Congolese? Best thing to do would be to make him a colour that isn't in the human race to avoid offending someone.😂

If he's as clever as they say he is then he could change his colour accordingly like a chameleon to ever he happened to be talking to at the time.
Oh sorry I forgot he doesn't visit very often and especially at the moment as he is obviously observing social distancing.

No escaping the fact that Jesus is a Jew so he’d be of colour and unpopular in certain circles.

I have traveled to and lived in 7 different Middle Eastern Countries, to include Israel.

I would safely say that there are light and dark skin people all over the region. Even some red headed people.
