Ever been at a party where you know you’re invited just so the organisers could feel better knowing its a bit mixed? I get the feeling this story is all about that. Have an event, invite a few token ethnics to give the impression that you’re all ‘multicultural’, then then accidentally invite the BNP too.
Heh. Saying that, I know it cuts both ways too. I’ve been to events where I’m the token non-Muslim, or a token white person is invited because the organisers don’t really have a wide base of friends / contacts. All I can do is smile in amusement. Got any anecdotes of your own?
(on PP we have our own token white person Clairwil (Rumbold just looks white, secretly he’s Indian)).
