A UK 7 year-old from Hull, playing with his mate, who just happened to have a slightly darker skin, has been accused of being a racist because he innocently asked the boy if he came from Africa!
A teacher overheard the boy asking the question and promptly informed the Race Relations board, who then rushed round to the school, banned the boy, banned the mother and told the police that they should be locked up for being practicing racists (what?)
Now in this day and age of very sensitive race relations, caused mainly by over-paid South American footy players (no names please), children, who actually are quite innocent and inquisitive (it's a part of learning), normally, do not understand that other mates at school who look different could actually come from different countries, but they are not allowed to ask where they come from originally because that is racist behaviour.
So how do white caucasian British children expect to learn about the big wide world when they are not even allowed to ask where another, different looking child, comes from?
Teachers have also been forbidden to teach their classes that people of African, Arab, Polish, Indian, Pakistan, etc, descent have actually entered Britain and do come from somewhere else; SSSSSSSHHHH, that's forbidden!
So children being what they are, logical, mainly, just accept the fact that those who do look different are just common Aliens, because they have seen them on their computer games; problem solved!
