I was brought up hearing my father speak ill of Black people, homosexuals and denigrating women.
When Connor uttered the words ‘ I don’t like Black people’ I was stunned. It seems that the message ‘ there is only one race, the human race’ had not penetrated. He ‘did not like Black people’.
I did not get very close to the Body Shop. It was cordoned off. I asked a police officer what was going on.
