7. When I was very young, a policeman came to me school to explain
equality. He plucked an Asian girl and me (I'm very, very pale white) out of the class. He asked the girl: "What country where you born in?" and she said "England." Then he asked me: "What country were you born in?" and I said, truthfully, "India."

That buggered that lesson.
