It was in a Parisian metro (subway / tube) that I eavesdropped on a conversation between a group of young interracial men... The South Asian gentleman addressing the two blackmen said “ are simply not being hired because your roots are easily traced to a continent synonymous to misery...” one of the black guys said “but i am Carribean” the other blackman shot back, “you idiot, who cares? You’re black!” ...Another gentleman in the group, this time an East Asian continued “you know the Japanese and Chinese had to prove their economic value to steer clear of social ridicule and a total disrespect for our culture...!” I thought it was an interesting conversation. - Friday 1 February 2008
