In the last 24 hours, I have heard three different people say:
“I’d hate to live with a Chink. They smell, you know.”
“His children? [referring to well-known Irish man of mixed race] You’ll find them in the zoo.”
“He’s foreign, but he’s gorgeous. It’s ok, I checked, he’s not Polish.”
Edit: Is this just me? Was I underestimating how racist we are in this country?
