This is a question Racist grandparents

It Came From Planet Aylia says: "My husband's mad Auntie Joan accused the man seven doors down of stealing her milk as he was the first black neighbour she had. She doesn't even get her milk delivered." Tell us about casual racism from oldies.

Thanks to Brayn Dedd who suggested this too

I once worked with a mixed-race guy from Zimbabwe (this is not a limerick) who would be mortally offended if he was referred to as 'black' or indeed 'brown'.

The acceptable term in his opinion was 'beige'.

I couldn't think of a worst way to be described.

Beige is just the right description for some people.

I'm like a bassett's all sorts of genetics: my skin colour does the following:-

Winter: pale
Summer: swarthy
All other times: beige
