So many times I’ve heard over the years: “they weren’t like that to me, are you sure it happened?”, when recounting incidents of racism to white friends and family.

It is only in the last few years that I realised what that meant: of course it never happened to them – they’re not Chinese or persons of colour!

So now, I have a little habit of biding my time to bring it up at moments intended to cause maximum squirming.

Subtle I ain’t.
