It was Windrush day on June 22 and I'd thought post about it.

It was a black day for families living in our cities: the start of the exodus. While the immigrants moved in, the traditional communities were forced out. Undercut on wages and priced out of accomodation they left the cites.

Let's be fair, back in the 1960's a family of 4 living in one room was still common, indoor plumbing wasn't. There was a national housing shortage after WW2 and people took whatever accommodation they could. Wages for most wouldn't basic living costs and had to be made up with welfare payments. A system that's carried onto this day.

The Windrush generation celebrate their arrival with all the fanfare of an invading army. Back up by new laws enforcing their rights.

Windrush generation can't understand why there resented, why there so much anger towards them. After all they did nothing wrong by coming here.

Well if you're from one of those families forced out of London, Birmingham or even Luton... no matter what laws they past, no matter how much "public reeducation", the "white flight generation" will still be racist.

And to be fare I can't blame them. After two world wars and a depression being forced out was always going to cause long term trouble.
