Senoufou BS: A person of color and a colored person (111* d) RE: BS: A person of color and a colored person 17 Nov 20


hen I was a young girl in the fifties, the only 'black' men around were chimney sweeps and the chaps who brought the coal (on their backs, and they shot it into the bunker). But one day, while on the bus with my mum, a real black man got on. I think he was a Jamaican. I shouted out, "Mummy! Look! A chimney sweep has got on the bus!!" My mother nearly died of shame, and apologised profusely. But the bloke laughed like a drain and patted my shoulder. He was so nice, and I was very struck by his handsome face and gorgeously white teeth.
I didn't know that one day I'd be happily married to an extremely black man, who isn't at all bothered by how people refer to him.
