    I suspect most people would prefer not to be defined in terms of what they're not. Non-white seems to assume white as 'normal'. Perhaps it's my 70s saffer upbringing where segregation was "whites/non-whites" but it's certainly not a term I'd use.

        There was a bit of silence and awkwardness.

        I thought if I said the black person that would be the non pc term.

        It’s confusing now.

        You need to start playing the BAME game!

                The whole colour/race thing is stupid anyway. There's only one race of humans. Homo Sapiens. Amber Rudd, however, is definitely colourless.

                  "Homo Sapiens" is a term that I did not think you would use.

                    I have shed my whitness and will now only be referred to as a person of light.

                    If you refer to me as white i will report you to the police.

                    This policy can and may be changed in future.
