    I took the cod-history lesson, complete with gratuitous mention of "Moslems", as a sure sign that we were being trolled.

    People who see differing opinions as a threat aren't the solution to racism but a large part of the cause thereof. Their strident attempts to drown facts with their "look at me, I'm more politically correct than thou" screams, are what fuels racism and intolerance.

    Andrew,

    Calm down. Why don't you make yourself a nice cup of Yorkshire Tea (as sold in Sainsbury's and enjoyed by Rishi Sunak) and while you're enjoying it, take a careful look at Tony's photos and Jack's photos and tell us how they make you feel.

    I've got a better idea. I've put you on ignore.

    Whatever you think of the protests, there are indeed some great shots there. Not all of them recent. One of Jesse Jackson with an afro had me LOL.

    That video rightly makes me question whether me attending on Sunday and telling the story was the right thing to do or not, I don't know whether it was, I had doubts at the time, but all you can do is do it and see, or not do it and see, and I decided to do it and see.

    I think the video is incredibly powerful though, I know most people who it might inform won't watch it, but Zak is excellent, his delivery is excellent, his honest is excellent and certainly his journey matches mine in many ways.

    Are there any black photographers on the forum? What do you think?

    Might watch that later. Haven't watched his videos since he resumed them, but one of the things I've always liked about him is his humanity and manner, especially when shooting on the street. Seems like a thoroughly decent guy.

    I skimmed through it. That's 120 seconds wasted.

    I vaguely remember, from the 1980s(?), a couple of items from a list of ripostes to bigots and racists:

    Your ancestors? All africans!

    Your god? A jewish arab!

    The problem with telling a bigot anything is that what s/he disagrees with is simply tuned out.
