Stop the Planes

My wife was born in Uganda. She’s Black, like our kids. She came to the UK when she was five.

She’s just told me she feels like she should put herself on a plane to Rwanda.

Then she said she realised she came here legally, she has indefinite leave to remain, and she’s a British citizen.

I asked her what was it that made her feel like she should deport herself.

Unsurprisingly, she said it’s because of all the anti-immigration rhetoric in the news. As she said,

It’s obvious no one wants my Black face here.
