He has done something incredible that will have a significant impact on the lives of poor children. Standing up to Boris Johnson required a great deal of courage.
You want to compare apples and oranges. The racism over here has never been as bad as that in America which is why Doctor Who needed to use Rosa Parks as a shocking example of racism. Over here it wouldn’t have had anywhere near the same impact.
Even though black people have been here since Roman times they’ve been a small minority until the 1950s when lots of immigrants from the West Indies and India came over here.
Recent immigrants tend to keep their heads down, it’s not until second generation that they start to rail against the status quo. Not a lot of second generation black people in Britain when Rosa Parks made her protest.
What’s all this England **** as well? The country I live in is the UK. I don’t go on about Massachusetts when talking to you, I talk about the USA because I’m not pig ignorant like you.
