Really interesting read. The anecdote about the bath reminds me of a guy I used to work with in the 80s who used to stand up against the wall every time our (gay) boss went past and then make the back against the wall 'joke'. He was obviously one of the least attractive guys I have ever met and I exactly pointed out to him that our boss, who was in a happy long term relationship, wouldn't fancy him so there was nothing to worry about. If there had been a black person in our office, I'm sure he would have made similar 'hilarious' quips. Hopefully those days when people might even think this is acceptable are over.
So impressive that Leroy is fighting back against racism with convincing words and education rather than bitterness.
