I had a 'normal' English upbringing. Daily Mail on the doormat, God, Queen and Country. Military and Colonial. 'Dirty Arabs' and 'Sambo' were normal words. Thin Lizzy would be on TOTP and the Old Man would be going on about Phil Lynott swinging through the jungle, then we told him he was Irish too for sport. I was blindly racist all through my childhood until one day when I was 12 I learned about slavery & racism was explained to me. I realised that it was Not a Good Thing
