Supersleuth : “I think that you and I being in the UK and being in many ways “colour blind”, are sensitive to different things from others on the thread.”
You don’t need to be “colour blind”. We are all different colours, from all over the world, with many different religions, cultures and customs. It makes more sense to be the opposite, to see all different people from all walks of life and to find the diversity beautiful. I think you may have been implying that everyone should be treated the same though, which I agree with.
“You are ahead of most of us in this respect and are to be heartily congratulated.”
Hang on a sec, aren’t you “colour blind”? You really think it’s appropriate to go around congratulating people for being in mixed-race relationships? Do I get that congratulations too? I can pass the message on to my fiancé, but do you want my mum’s, or my dad’s phone number? I’m the product of a mixed-race marriage, and I’m in a mixed-race relationship, and I can tell you that nobody needs your patronising congratulations just because they don’t give a shit what race the person that they fall in love with is. Mixed-race relationships are normal as fuck. The only thing that people who are in them need to be congratulated on is the fact that they stand their ground and ignore any racist and judgemental crap that comes their way because of it.
